Over the last few months I have sparotic episodes of a heap of symptoms,
- Headaches (constant to severe throbbing ones)
- Intermittant left flank pain
- Abdo pain
- Chest pain
- Shortness of breath (when symptoms at worse)
- Hypertension (which checked during 'episodes' around 160/100, usually 110/70)
Have had all the cardiac testing - multiple 24/hr holter moniters, echos, stress tests etc - all being fine appart from random tachycardia eppisodes - up to 210bpm.
Went to the ED last weekend with severe left flank pain (dr suspected possible kidney stone - bloods and urine NAD) was given morphine & metoclopramide IV - had a quick reaction - BP spiked to 180/110, HR 170, felt sick and dizzy. Similar to when i have an episode from home.
Im finding the episodes are becoming more frequent with smaller things setting them off - such as walking up a few stairs (Im quite fit and healthy) or going to the toilet.
Have done two 24hr urine for catecholamines - first negative (no episodes), second to be confirmed tomorrow (I had a lot of episodes during this one)
Renal & Abdo Ultrasound - NAD
CT Abdo & Adrenals done this morning - NAD
Bloods mostly normal - Slightly anaemic, CRP slightly elevated
I have a past history of mild asthma (only had one bad attack last year with the pneumonia and slight exercise intolerance) and a few UTIs. Other than that I am a usually fit and healthy 19 year old (weighing about 61kg, 5ft 7 in height)
Any clues?????? I really over all these symptoms and really want some answers!
