Hyperadrenergic Pots

Interesting. My catecholamines were checked, and I was told I did not have hyperadrenergenic POTS. This year I went to Vanderbilt, and was told that my POTS is, indeed, hyperadrenergenic. My urine was checked for catecholamines inititally. I guess that test isn't always right?

Studies in the Heart Centre in Australia seemed to indicate that its the NE reuptake at the synaptic level that causes the symptoms of a hyperadrenergic state even when blood levels are sometimes found to be normal. This may be caused by NE transporter deficiency but I think their jury is still out on that.
