Orthostatic Hypotension (OH) Is Often Caused by Nervous System Disorders
People living with Parkinson’s disease (PD), multiple system atrophy (MSA), pure autonomic failure (PAF), and other types of autonomic dysfunction have told us that getting a diagnosis of neurogenic orthostatic hypotension (nOH) went a long way in giving them answers and hope for relief.
By definition, nOH is related to a problem with the nervous system. However, the symptoms of nOH often get mistaken for something else, or are considered “just” another symptom of an underlying nervous system disorder, like Parkinson's disease, that people have to learn to live with.
If you suspect that you may have symptomatic nOH, talk to your doctor.
