Heart irregularities

Hi Beth,
When it was determined via another biopsy, that I also had small fiber atrophy, my CIDP hit my autonomic system, thus hitting my organs, or I should say, the nerves controlling the organs.
It hit my diaphram, stomach, swallowing process, etc.
But it also hit the nerves controlling my heart. It gave me tachycardia, even though my blood pressure runs low. My pulse rate was running 120 to 140.
I have been on Altenolol to keep that under control, for over a year now.
But I was told by my neuro, once the CIDP hits the autonomic system, all the organs are at risk of becoming affected.
Perhaps that is what could be happening to you? Hope this helps…
