Acute Panautomic Neuropathy

What is Acute Panautonomic Neuropathy? 

Acute Panautonomic Neuropathy is a disease that causes the body’s immune system to attack the autonomic nerves. The autonomic nerves are responsible for regulating body functions like heart rate, blood pressure, digestion, and breathing. Acute Panautonomic Neuropathy can be a rare, but severe, vaccine reaction. 

Symptoms of Acute Panautonomic Neuropathy impact the nervous system. They include:  

  • Drops in blood pressure when standing
  • Cardiovascular problems
  • Abnormal sweating
  • Digestive difficulties
  • Urinary dysfunction
  • Abnormal pupil responses to light

What Should I Do If I Got Acute Panautonomic Neuropathy from a Vaccine?

If your doctor diagnosed you with Acute Panautonomic Neuropathy after getting a vaccine, there’s a federal program that exists to compensate people with severe vaccine reactions

  1. Contact a vaccine injury lawyer who is experienced representing clients in the Vaccine Injury Compensation Program. A local lawyer is often not the best to file these complicated cases. Vaccine injury cases are filed in the United States Court of Federal Claims. 
  2. You will need to get a copy of the Vaccine Administration Record (VAR). This record shows which vaccine you got and the date you received it. Our vaccine injury attorneys need this information to make sure you qualify to file a claim. 
  3. Get a copy of your medical records from the first doctor’s visit you had about Acute Panautonomic Neuropathy

I can’t recommend this firm enough. They have an outstanding team that truly care for their clients…I have been awarded a fair six figure settlement.

When I say “they went to bat” for me…this Law Firm literally did just that. They persevered to bring the hard-nosed Manufacturer to settle and provide me some recompense for everything I had to endure which led to this suit.
