Your autonomic nervous system is the part of your nervous system that oversees your organ function. Your doctor may want to see results of autonomic tests to find out if there is something wrong with this portion of your nervous system.
Autonomic tests measure how systems in your body that are controlled by autonomic nerves respond to stimulation. Because there are so many organs involved in the autonomic nervous system, your doctor may order a number of tests to check on various systems. Most of these tests are basic and will provide your doctor better information for your diagnosis and treatment.
