I stopped posting here for a few reasons, but this might be worth logging in its own thread. I will be having a phaeochromocytoma removed soon. These adrenal tumours are usually diagnosed through excessive catecholamines in 24 urine collection, or through excessive metabolites of those catecholamines in blood plasma. My results for these tests were consistently only slightly elevated, and the lesion is only 13mm, so the phaeochromocytoma went undiagnosed until I experienced some mild hypertensive episodes which prompted an MIBG scan. It could well be the reason I had a heart attack last year, which was the precursor to developing ME/CFS. Anyway, in common with everyone else here, I have been secretly hoping that some clearly biophysical issue will suddenly be identified and cured, restoring good health. So, of course, I’m full of dangerous phaeochromocytomal optimism, which will probably be dashed, but I will report back either way after the operation.
