I have my 24 hr urine test results and have elevated noradrenaline level:

Creatine Excr. - 7.9 Range 5-16
Adrenaline Excr. - 4.1 nmol/d Range 0-80
Noradrenaline Excr. - 557 nmol/d Range 100-420

Note say for hypertensive Range is 45-680. I am on hypertensive drug 8 mg. Artacand.

Doctor is redoing 24 hr urine test for noradrenaline and metanephrine and plasma free metanephrine.

Do I have phaechromocytoma??

Symtoms are hypertension, occasion palpatations, sweating, headache.
