Does a negative QSART test by itself rule out peripheral neuropathy?

I have some autonomic dysfunction as well as peripheral neuropathy type symptoms (cold feet, exacerbated nerve pain at night, some tingling running through feet)

I have not had a punch or EMG, but I have had all the autonomic tests.  I passed the QSART.  Had exaggerated HR increase during the tilt table with a potential fit for POTS.

Does the passed QSART rule out peripheral neuropathy (or generally, true neuropathy / physical nerve damage)?

Curious because my follow-ups for this are not for 2 more months.
