Hmmm. That is not one that I had run across before. I had to look it up. I did not find much in similarities, but the way things go, I will mention it to my Rhumey the next time I see them.
Unless I found the wrong thing, it looked like it was more circulatory related than nerve. I seem to be having a lot of nerve issues. Plus, I have had Hypotension, not Hypertension.
These are the typical symptoms I found. Is this what you are referring to?
General symptoms: Fever, weight loss
Skin: Palpable purpura, livedo reticularis
Muscles and joints: Myalgia or myositis, arthralgia or arthritis
Nervous system: Mononeuritis multiplex, headache, stroke, tinnitus, reduced visual acuity, acute visual loss
Heart and arteries: Myocardial infarction, hypertension, gangrene
Respiratory tract: Nose bleeds, bloody cough, lung infiltrates
GI tract: Abdominal pain, bloody stool, perforations
Of these, I have had: Fever (low grade), arthritis (but my orthopedic surgeon said nothing beyond what would be expected in someone my age), headache, tinnitus, reduced visual acuity (very mild and related to retina issues), Nose bleeds (ENT says from Sinusitis), and abdominal pain.
Like I said, I will bring anything up to my Rhumey (I see two, and although one is the "expert" in his field (and I like him), the other one is so much easier to understand).
I am actually going to see a different Neurologist who is familiar with the different autonomic conditions, so maybe she will have something to say about
this as well.
Thanks for taking the time to answer me. :)
