mngirl Posted September 7, 2005 Report Share Posted September 7, 2005 for the serum postural catecholamine test. It says that they were normal:Norepinephrine upright: 489 pg/mLNorepinephrine supine: 186 pg/mLEpinephrine upright: 21 pg/mLEpinephrine supine: 11 pg/mLDopamine upright: <10 pg/mLDopamine supine: <10 pg/mLI finally got some info on my TTT test too...I had a "hyperadrenergic response to head-up tile showing diastolic BP elevation & a remarkable increase in heart rate from 78 supine to 153 by 5 minutes. BP remained stable w/mild diastolic hypertension, heart rate stayed in the mid-150 range."Anyway...He also stated the following as my diagnosis':1) POTS2) Complex Regional Pain Syndrome (right arm)gotta love this one...3) Secondary anxiety and somantizationHas anyone else been diagnosed with #3. While looking it up online to see what it means, it sounds like he thinks I am a little crazy!All of the pain and stuff that I have had has all been medically explained. The POTS was the only thing that took FOREVER to diagnosis, and I did see TONS of docs because they all told me it was an inner ear thing, which I certainly knew it was not.My arm pain was due to an ulnar nerve compression (confirmed by my doc, which said it was the WORST she had EVER seen), my head pain is from me hitting my head a year ago, and then the Addison's Disease (confirmed by the tests). Just wondering if anyone else was given that as part of their diagnosis?~Lisa Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
