NITRIC OXIDE Used To Treat Autonomic Neuropathy Hyperhidrosis?

Recently I was diagnosed with Autonomic Neuropathy Hyperhidrosis/Small Fiber Neuropathy which is condition in which the nerves that control involuntary body functions, such as perspiration and heart rate, are damaged. The characteristic features of autonomic neuropathy include hyperhidrosis, or excessive sweating, of the upper body, and anhidrosis, or lack of sweating, of the lower body. Small fiber neuropathy is a condition characterized by severe pain attacks that typically begin in the feet or hands. As a person ages, the pain attacks can affect other regions. Some people initially experience a more generalized, whole-body pain. The attacks usually consist of pain described as stabbing or burning, or abnormal skin sensations such as tingling or itchiness. In some individuals, the pain is more severe during times of rest or at night. The signs and symptoms of small fiber neuropathy usually begin in adolescence to mid-adulthood.

It is a Naturally occurring molecule helps the body dilate blood vessels, increase blood flow, and improve oxygen delivery. NO has both a direct and indirect effect on neurotransmission. The direct effect relates to permeability of nerve membranes regulating ion transport that is important for nerve signal transmission. Indirectly, Nitric Oxide enables nerves to properly function by causing increases in blood flow (vasodilation) allowing essential oxygen and nutrients to be transported to nerve cells. This could be perhaps and alternate treatment instead of medications for such conditions.
