Has any doc ever encountered autonomic neuropathy symptoms in a patient that led to a diagnosis of Small Cell Lung Cancer. Thank you?

In brief: I'll guess not

The symptoms alone would not be the basis for a cancer Dx.
Your Dr must have had a number of specific tests run beyond asking you about symptoms. Please talk to the Dr to clarify this and to obtain good info on the Dx, the Tx plan and your options. Knowing what to expect can be very important. Bring someone w/ you if you have trouble w/ this topic. Get it in writing too. Best wishes!
