I am confused! For the last 4 years I have been treated for anxiety/panic ... it has got increasingly worse ... i have had psychotherapy ... been on prozax, sertraline, paxil, benzodiazepines ... all with no real success ... i had taken some propranolol at a low dosage ... i had alot of tests done. After moving abroad i saw a new doctor ... she was VERY concerned about my BP (i am just 26 and it was pretty high) and scheduled an immediate appointment with an endocrinologist ... VMA tests (x 2) both high, high catecholamines, high met and nmetanephrines ... CT scan of adrenals unrevealing ... now on atenolol daily ...
BUT, for years my old docs in the UK had been convinced there was no physical cause?????? I'm so confused about what to do next ... do I have high BP??? do i ahve a pheocromacytoma??? is it 'just' stress??
My symptoms are anxiety, panic, upper body and neck flushing, paleness, fatigue, constant dizziness, labile hypertension (upto 190/110)
What should I do next??
