In typical HNPP, motor symptoms predominate over sensory symptoms. Slight compression of peripheral nerves and repeated local exercise leads to episodes of weakness with decreased perception to touch and pain. Attacks present with a single nerve involvement, with onset on awakening, and are usually triggered by mild compression that resolves in days to months.

Epilepsy & Seizures
Vagus nerve stimulation is an effective alternative to antiseizure medications, but it rarely produces seizure freedom. Its mechanism has been well characterized, and its effect may be maximized through adjustments to the stimulation parameters. Vagus nerve stimulation generally produces minimal adverse effects and can benefit mood. It may also reduce the risk of sudden unexpected death in epilepsy.

Hypertensive encephalopathy is a syndrome in which altered mental status, headache, vision changes, and/or seizures accompany elevated blood pressure. Failure of cerebral autoregulation from a sudden elevation of blood pressure results in endothelial injury and vasogenic edema. Early recognition and correction of hypertension often results in reversal of the encephalopathy; without prompt treatment, permanently damaging ischemia or hemorrhage may result.
