Anyone here dealing with peripheral neuropathy?

Hi @johnbishop - Do you know of anyone in the group who is dealing with blood pressure swings as part of their neuropathy? I go from low BP in the mornings and after eating to high BP if I sit for too long, then back to low BP upon standing... tried various meds but they swing the levels too far in both directions. Had to resort to having Cheezits for breakfast this morning (ugh) just so I could stand long enough to get ready for work... Do you know what's worked for other people?

Hello @elizabej -- I did a quick search of Connect but was not able to find a member post that mentioned blood pressure swings with their neuropathy.

Have you discussed the blood pressure swings with your doctor?

I have no medical training or background but I think that it could be a symptom of autonomic nerve damage according to NIH

Hopefully one of our members with similar symptoms can offer some suggestions.
