Autonomic System Testing and PLEX Update

I had Autonomic Nervous System (ANS) testing last week at Vanderbilt. The good news is my autonomic nervous system is intact and is not causing my breathing, heart rate, and blood pressure issues. I still have the Small Fiber Neuropathy, but it has not damaged my ANS.

Everything still points toward Myasthenia Gravis (MG) and Small Fiber Neuropathy as the cause of my problems. Breathing is still a major issue.  In email discussions with my neurologist, he restated how unresponsive my MG is to treat. Oh well, I never do anything the easy way.

Be sure to look at my latest three videos. The first was just before receiving five days of plasma exchange (PLEX). The second was two day after completing the PLEX and the third was two weeks after PLEX. Here are the links.

Thanks again for all your prayers and support. I usually blog on Saturday, unless something unexpected happens.
