Hi!

Thanks for posting your query.

You mentioned, you have high blood proteins, tumour in adrenal glands, high blood pressure, thyroid disease, and ulcers. What seems to be bothering you is that you feel hot and sweaty and have pain in arms and legs-right? Correct me, if I have misunderstood.

Can you please answer some queries so that I can advise you better---

1. Is your blood pressure under control?
2. Have you been operated for adrenal tumour?
3. Do you have high or low function of thyroid (Hypothyroidism/Hyperthyroidism) and the medications you are on?

Please get back to me with these answers so that I can suggest you better.

Awaiting your reply.

Regards.

Hi!

Both Grave's disease and adrenal tumor can cause all your symptoms. Since you have had your Grave's disease treated with radioactive iodine and are now on Eltroxin supplementation, it is likely that hypertension and your symptoms of aches, pains, and feeling hot and sweaty are due to the adrenal tumor especially if it is called 'pheochromocytoma'.

And the treatment for this is surgical removal of the tumor which will correct all your symptoms.

Hello.

Thanks for writing back.

High serum proteins can be due to many causes.

Common ones are:
1. There can be selective increase in globulin fraction of proteins due to liver or kidney disease.

2. Multiple Myeloma: A test called 'serum electrophoresis' can confirm this condition in which there is raised serum proteins and show what is called 'M-band' on the test.

Hope this answers your query. Please accept my answer in case you have no follow up queries.

Regards.
