Nerve Disorders

Premier Physician Network providers answer frequently asked questions about nerve disorders.

What is autonomic dysfunction?

Autonomic dysfunction is when the autonomic nervous system isn’t working right, Premier Physician Network (PPN) physicians say. 

The autonomic nervous system controls how your body and organs function without you having to think about it. Some examples include how your heart, lungs, stomach, and bladder work. 

The system also controls breathing, blood pressure regulation, and body temperature.

With autonomic dysfunction, there’s a glitch in the system that normally makes your body work correctly.
