autonomic dysfunction

My doctors are tired of hearing my BP woes, but I am wondering if my BP issues are due to autonomic dysfunction.  I have MS and my bp is labile and diffcult to treat.  I either get high spikes but t hen my BP normalizes and too low for meds.  My lower number is usually in the 90's and upper 120's.  However after my last relapse it stayed at 110/70 for 6 months without meds.  I havent seen 110/70 in my bp since I was a teen and I am now 47, so I know something is up.

I understand your concern regarding your blood pressure issues. The autonomic nervous system is indeed affected with autonomic dysfunction  and symptoms such as dizziness, orthostatic hypotension, sweating abnormalities, digestion difficulties,  as well as
urinary problems may be present. It is best that you discuss thus with your doctor for proper management. Additional diagnostic tests may need to be done and symptomatic treatment is often indicated. Hope this helps. Take care and do keep us posted.

It's odd you mentioned sweating, because I noticed my head has been sweating a lot lately.
