What are the signs and symptoms of pheochromocytoma?
Sorry to learn about the situation. I follow what you are saying. When I encounter a patient in such circumstances I empirically start treatment with medication that I typically use for pheochromocytoma even while I'm waiting for results. The reason is as you surmised too that it can be life threatening. So I generally start either phenoxybenzamine or prazosin along with others as needed to control blood pressure. There are certain types of blood pressure and heart medications that MUST be avoided in the beginning. These are called BETA BLOCKERS. They are to be utilised only later once the previously mentioned meds have had their effect. You must stay well hydrated. If course , managing this is complex and requires the expertise of an endocrinologist who can examine and follow you closely
I'm sorry i did not reply sooner for some reason your answers are not getting to me until the early hours of the morning, maybe the time difference in the United States. Can you tell me please if Diazipan can make this condition worse without taking phenoxybenzamine or prazosin, or in your opinion will they help at 2mg 3 times daily.
thank you very much for your time i am worried about taking any medications at present.
best wishes Susanne Healy
