Endo told me its just stress. I would like to know what your thoughts are about these test,everything I have read on the net about these test say that the plasma is more reliable than the 24 HR urine because you may not be having an episode at that period of time. I had a total Thyroidectomy (with papillary cancer and De Quervain's thyroiditis,difficult surgery and i am having problems with vocal cords and throat) on March 27th.

I talked to my Cardiologist office today and they said i am having Tachycardia and heart changes which he will explain to me next wednesday morning.

I am having so many symptoms right now, heat intolerance,sweats,night sweats,blurred vision,diarrhea,frequent bowel movements,low blood pressure,abdominal pain,headaches,weightloss,side and back pain,clammy skin,feet bone pain,hair loss,chest pain, and a boil.

Sorry you are having such troubles. If yours is like mine, it just keeps going on and on.

Did the dr check the arenals?

You might want to do the 24 hour saliva test, most insurances don't cover this. It is about 99.00 from canaryclub.

See if he will check for a pheochromacytoma(sp).
