Testing for autonomic nervous system disorders now available in Central New York
A neurologist who specializes in neuromuscular disorders now provides autonomic testing in the Syracuse area. Ahmed Eldokla, MD, cares for a variety of patients in Upstate's neuromuscular clinic, including people with myasthenia gravis, muscular dystrophy, diabetes and disorders of the nerve, muscle and neuromuscular junction. He offers nerve conduction studies and electromyography, which allows him to listen to the sound waves of the muscles, as well as muscle biopsies. The autonomic nervous system controls the body's blood pressure, heart rate, pain response and sweating ability.
