Neuropathy Of The Autonomic Nervous System
A complete nerve transection will leave an area totally numb. The distribution of the numbers depends upon where the nerve was cut. A partial nerve injury may leave the area tingly or incompletely numb. Finally even if the nerve is not cut the swelling and bruising to the tea can affect the nerve as well. Usually we consider sharp penetrating injuries as likely having nerve lacerations when sensation is lost. A hand surgeon can examine the hand and pinpoint the site or extent of nerve injury and recommend ...Read more
What is the best way to heal a dysfunction of the autonomic nervous system? Do hormones influence the ans, particularly in women? And, if so, which ones?
Depends on cause: Autonomic dysfunction has a number of causes, although sometimes the cause is unknown. If it is caused by diabetes or parkinson's, then treating the underlying disease may help. Otherwise, you should work with your doctor to alleviate the symptoms, especially the cardiac and blood pressure symptoms. Hormones can affect the ans, but don't really cause the disorder. ...Read more

The : The autonomic nervous system (also called the visceral nervous system) affects things like heart rate, respiratory rate, digestion, movement of the intestines, dilation of the pupils, sweating, and other very fundamental bodily functions that do not require (or are often beyond) voluntary control. Because of this wide range of functions, it is not possible to provide a specific answer to this general question. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Autonomic nervous: System is the part of the peripheral nervous system that controls the "automatic" body functions -- heart rate, respiration, digestion, perspiration, hormone secretion, etc, versus the motor nervous system that controls voluntary movement. Biofeedback research has proven that even many ANS functions can be consciously affected or trained -- www.Bcia.Org or www.Aapb.Org. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

When we get cold and get goosebumps, is this the autonomic nervous system? Also is it small fibre nerves?
Pilo erectors: Goose bumps are caused by activation of the sympathetic nervous system which secretes Adrenalin (fight or flight reaction) which causes the tiny muscles to raise hair follicles temporarily. Cold temperatures can also do this. ...Read more
The autonomic nervous system is part of the peripheral nervous system. It is ‘autonomic’ because it does not require voluntary thought to function. The autonomic nervous system is divided into the sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous systems. The sympathetic system manages “fight or flight” responses and the parasympathetic system acts as a counterpart that manages ...Read more
The autonomic nervous system (ans or visceral nervous system or involuntary nervous system) is the part of the peripheral nervous system that acts as a control system functioning largely below the level of consciousness, and controls visceral functions, such as heart rate, digestion, respiratory rate, salivation, perspiration, pupillary dilation, ...Read more
