Fri, Sep 6 6:06pm · Visual Snow: Anyone experience this? in Eye Conditions

Oct 1, 2018 · Autonomic Neuropathy in Neuropathy

I was diagnoses with AN in 2014. No real treatment available from VA Docs. My Primary says there is nothing new to treat or alleviate the disease It has become worse as I age. (71) I read from some of the reports that some sort of dementia is not uncommon. I experience that 24/7. Nothing more frustrating.. I saw an aunt start her decline in Alzheimer's many years ago. Cant help making that association. My type 2 went into remission after Bariatric surgery in 7/15 .. I was not diagnosed with type 2 until my 50th birthday. (98)/ The weight loss of 80 lbs has given me a reprieve but the tingling feels like low voltage current in parts of my body. That was noticed in late 70's..

I saw a neurologist and Nephrologist. No cardio Dr at all. Only you know. I still get around ok.

Mar 27, 2018 · Autonomic Neuropathy in Neuropathy

Hello My Autonomic was diagnosed in 2014 at Mayo Phoenix. In addition to the usual numbness in my feet and to some degree lower legs, I had balance deficits, body temp swings that did not match the normal temperature from my external causes. Ie weather, inside temps, exercise. Probably more if I could detail all of them. They put me on a flat table and stood me up and dropped me back and I was hooked up to sensors attached to my body. I see a cardiologists 2 times a year for. I have 3 stents and history of blockage. I have not drank alcohol for 25 years and quit smoking Dec 83. I developed severe respiratory problems that still remain. Also muscle weakness and stamina difficulty. My vision seemed to fluctuate also. I never had the VA look into this and they never thought to check..I may have been exposed to chemicals while in the military in the 60's.. VA pretends they weren't there though. I will ask miy cardio Doc when I see him next month. Never thought to question him. I should know what POTS means but it slips me. ?? Let me know about your prognoses thanks

The Mayo Clinic in Phoenix diagnosed me with Autonomic Neuropathy in 2014. I don’t see any reference to that form in any of the information or discussions. I know it effect’s my balance, body temperature variance and possibly thinking. Any one have this diagnosis? Seems to be worsening as I age.

I have had neuropathy for several decades and was diagnosed with type 2 diabetes in 97. I experienced several symptoms not explainable with just diabetes as the underlying cause. I was diagnosed with kidney disease also by the VA at some point several years ago.. Then in 2014 I went ot Mayo to see if more issues could be discovered. After the exam by a Nephrologists I was diagnosed with not only peripheral Neuropathy but Autonomic Neuropathy. The VA had never bothered to look deeper into my complaints.. I did file a claim with VA for contact with Agent Orange as proof of its use on Okinawa became public. Of course the VA denied any connection with AO or other possible contact with chemicals that could manifest decades later ..I ran into complete stonewalling and denial of all claims.. Now time is running out on an appeal time. How convenient. There are now photos of the chemical's in containers on the beach and later, buried in the locals civilian communities. This should be brought to light for other Vets and the public that had families lost due to the negligence and cover up. Neuropathy for me continues to worsen as I age.
