Question: The ER doctor shared with the nurse, that with all the symptoms that he witnessed, he wanted to do a "24-hour" urinalysis to see how much adrinaline was dumped in my system. He wanted to rule out, "Pheo."

I don't start Medidare until 7/1/2020, what relief suggestions can you give me?

Brief Answer:
Need blood pressure monitoring

Detailed Answer:
Hello

Keeping into consideration your medical history and event of accelerated hypertension and no other significant medical issues in the past it’s advisable to keep a close watch on your blood pressure by measuring it twice a day at fixed time and chart it. Keep the antihypertensive medications on hold if your blood pressure stays below 130/80mmhg on average.
If it goes beyond that start with a 5 mg of amlodipine initially.
Your doctor wants to check the levels of 24 hrs urinary metanephrines to rule out the presence of a rare condition called pheochromocytoma.

Kind Regards
