My name is Sean,
I have started to worry about the possibility that I have a pheochromocytoma because since December (after I had bronchitis and was on antibiotics) I started to get bad brain fog everyday and it still hasn't left me at all. I also started to get heart palpitations almost constantly (I can feel them come on really strong when lying down, not so much when I'm standing or doing something) I then went to the hospital because of my high heart rate (115) and they did and Ecg, EKG and a blood test. All came. Back normal besides a slight sinus tachycardia but I was informed that it wasn't anything To be worried about, so I was given beta blockers a low dose of bisoprolol 2.5mg taken once a day.
I then went and got my catecholamines blood test done and everything was normal, and my doctor said I don't have pheochromocytoma. But, I can constantly feel my heart beat (almost all the time)
They also performed a ct scan and x ray of my abdomen and chest. Found no abnormalities and my adrenal glands were of normal size and no tumors were found. They then wanted to rule out Gerd because I was getting some heartburn symptoms. So they did an upper endoscopy which came back normal besides two small fundic gland polyps which were benign. I had had many other blood tests done and heart examinations and they have found nothing wrong with me.
I'm scared that they are missing something and that my symptoms will get worse and worse until its too late...
My current symptoms are as follows:
Palpitations (more prominent when lying or sitting), occasional headaches but usually comes from neck pain and posture, high heart rate at rest (84BPM), fluttering feeling underneath my left rib (diaphragm area) also, I get fatigue from time to time (sleepiness) I don't have any abnormal tempature, and no sweating at all.
Any help would be really appreciated.
