- DISABILITY CLAIM FAQ
According to Dysautonomia International, dysautonomia is when your autonomic nervous system (“ANS”) malfunctions. The ANS controls heart rate, blood pressure, digestion, pupil dilation and constriction, kidney function, and body temperature. A malfunctioning ANS can result in many problems, including double vision, incontinence, dizziness, chronic fatigue, cognitive impairment, syncope, vertigo, orthostatic hypotension, and weakness. ANS is usually incurable.
