    My daughter has had adrenal tumours and from what I can remember the symptoms included

    Hypertension (severely) and then vomiting

    Low mood

    No energy

    Severe migraines

    Dizzy when standing

    This is just to name a few but pheochromocytoma is very hard to live with and even harder to diagnose!

      Hi.. I'm afraid it wasn't as simple as doing tests for a diagnosis.

      She has symptoms for approx 3 years but were put down to panic attacks. Trying to cut a long story short she became very unwell one day, weak/hot/ lightheaded.. then vomiting/ chest pain and palpitations. By the end she could hardly breath and consequently because she was so hypertensive. she was tachycardic (HR 170) and hypertensive (180/110) and was peripherally shut down and clammy. They found a 7cm tumour in left adrenal, then after numerous tests found another in her right adrenal consequently had bilateral pheochromocytoma.

      Any other questions you have I will try to answer
