Both GBS and CIDP can affect the autonomic nervous system. What does that mean?

“…Your autonomic nervous system is the part of your nervous system that controls involuntary actions, such as the beating of your heart and the widening or narrowing of your blood vessels. When something goes wrong in this system, it can cause serious problems, including

* Blood pressure problems
* Heart problems
* Trouble with breathing and swallowing
* Erectile dysfunction in men…”

There is a special test that can be run to determine if you trouble with your autonomic system.
