I keep having episodes of what seems to be autonomic dysreflexia, I have a non- traumatic C5 spinal cord injury. As a result of it being a non-traumatic injury no one ever mentioned AD as a possible problem I might encounter. Sometimes I have been able to find the problem (usually bladder related) and then my blood pressure will normalize. However twice lately I have not been able to find the cause and my blood pressure was high and I was experiencing lots of symptoms for several hours straight. I don’t know what kind of doctor or healthcare professional to bring this up to, since my primary care doctor doesn’t seem to know much about spinal cord injuries and I am not in spinal rehab (or anything like that). Any advice would greatly be appreciated.
