Please read my medical history before reading further; I had a second catecholamine test completed the adrenaline levels are now 52.21 pg/ml and the noradrenaline 460.16 pg/ml.

I had a thyroidultrasound as a workup for pheochromocytoma. The US showed a 8mm solid indeterminate nodule and a small complex cyst. Could this be associated with the symptoms of a pheochromocytoma? I have elevated urine catecholamine levels (2-3x) and HTN with exertion (220/140) that quickly returns to normal (110/70) and palpitaions. What is the recommended treatment or followup?
Sometime I have a dull headache over a few days, weird feeling in my chest. Cardiologist says my heart is good, just has some sort of 'click' to the mitral valve.
He has just sent me to do test to check urinary catecholamine levels. I understand that with the fight/flight response, adrenaline is released which can cause vasoconstriction, hence the headache. I do not have stress in my life but I still get the fight/flight response. Panadol does not relieve the headache. Is there a medication or supplement which can reduce the adrenaline pumped into my system or counteract it that I can take, eg, anti-inflammatory ?

Sub: Drug Treatment for Parkinson s Disease What is of the counter Chemist name for purchase of the drug ? Drug Sinemet (Levodopa/Carbidopa). Levodopa (also called L-dopa) is the most commonly prescribed and most effective drug for controlling the symptoms of Parkinson s disease, particularly bradykinesia and rigidity.
