Brief Answer:
Yes.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for being on healthcaremagic.com.
I am Dr.Ajay Panwar,a neurologist, here to answer your query.

Yes, of course. Cervical injury can result in autonomic dysfunction. It can result in autonomic dysreflexia resulting in excessive sympathetic stimulation.

If you have any specific query related to this, I shall be glad to have you in follow-up.

I suffered a concussion with mild whiplash about 6 months ago. I have had autonomic dysfunction ever since. specifically, urinary frequency, ibs, spasticity of muscles, and mild to moderate postural hypertension.

I have had an MRI of head, spine and CT. all of them were relatively mild in their findings. is there anything I can do about these symptoms?
