autonomic nerves

Well, my neurologist said that prune fingers are due to autonomic (sp?) nerve involvement. Autonomic nerves control the pressure in the fingers. Prune fingers means that the nerves are not normal (I wish we had a smiley for “DUH!”).

He said that they are typically involved early in the onset of GBS or CIDP. As long as it doesn’t get too bad and corrects I don’t need to worry about it. :confused:

I think I’ll do some more web-research on this phenomenon.
