yikespanic Posted April 19, 2006 Report Share Posted April 19, 2006 Had my follow-up appt with Dr Grubb's nurse pract Bev yesterday. She is just as nice and through as he is, and the wait to see her was only 10 minutes. She ordered the catecholamine blood test, and they were able to do it right there at the Lab. I had to lay down for 30 min, they drew blood, then briskly walk for 30 min and then have my blood drawn again. What exactly will this test tell them? All I could find was it might help find tumors, (scared me). On a good note, the trial of celexa has helped me. She upped my dose alittle and were going to see if it helps a bit more. My BP isn't shooting up, the racing heart still happens though not nearly as often and not as long in duration. My BP is still low but I'm not see stars and getting all the nasty other feelings as much. My anxiety levels have dropped and it is a bit more managable. My hopes are up. My fatigue is still a problem and we are going to work on trying a new med for helping me sleep that just came out that doesn't have any side effects. Hopefully with some better sleep the fatique may improve. I sure hope so. Kim Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
