For over 3 years now and getting worse I have been living constantly feeling stimulated. Can stay awake for days, etc. We have done many tests and even hospital stays with no confirmation, the doctors can see my symptoms, such as hugely dilated pupils and shaking during this cycle (which is like a yoyo, goes up for days, crashes down). We think it's maybe nervous system disorder.
Feeling stimulated (constant, just sometimes extreme)
Not sleeping for days (up to 10 days in a row confirmed in A&E)
Tremors hands and legs (weak and shaky on my feet)*
Excessive sweating & fevers*
Adrenaline rushes, followed by anxiety
Easily over-stimulated – Just doing simple tasks can send adrenaline
(it's not anxiety, been ruled out for that bipolar and tried 15 medications at this point)
I got a catecholamines test, my results were
Noradrenaline 240 (range was below 573)
Dopamine 1590 (range was below 3270)
these seem good, nicely in the middle but my adrenaline although not over, I wonder what the ideal was. All i was given was
Adrenaline 102 (range was below 147)
Adrenaline doesn't seem like something you'd want to be 2/3 of the range, has anyone had a Urine Adrenaline, if so what was yours?
