welcome to health care magic
headche,palpitations suggest of an underlying cardiovascular abnormality..
please get your B.P check up regularly..consult a cardiologist,
get an ecg done.If your B.P is on a higher side you need to be started on antihypertensive medications...
thank you

Hi welcome to healthcareMagic Forum

It is good that pheochromacytoma is negative...
since the cause is unknown nothing to worry... continue to take the prescribed anti hypertensive... salt intake is restricted, good sleep is necessary.. routinely get your eye check up done to avoid any retinal damage by hypertension...
