Ask Your Health Question and Get an Answer ASAP
Welcome to Just Answer and thank you for the question.
I am Dr. Sohaib, a Medical Internist (who deals with diseases of all the organ systems of body) and i will do my best to find an answer for you.
It appears from the mentioned extensive laboratory work that you are suffering from postural hypotension and already on treatment for that.
I have searched a beautifully written easy to understand article for you regarding this condition which will help you understand your problem in great detail. Please click this link:
Please specifically read life style and home remedies mentioned in this article.
If the drugs you have taken did not help you significantly, there are other options which can also be employed.
Sometimes a specific cause for this can not be identified, in which case it is called Idiopathic Postural Hypotension, but we continue with all the management strategies to provide you a symptomatic relief.
There are few things about which you should ask your doctor.
Inderal can cause fall in blood pressure and may potentiate this problem, so why not it should be stopped?
Anxiety can also contribute to your symptoms and may make it worse, therefore, discuss with your doctor regarding evaluation and possible treatment for anxiety.
I would have been worried too if i were at your place but let me reassure you that this is a treatable condition and carry a good prognosis with appropriate management.
Wish you good luck.

i am on inderal bec despite of having low blood pressure and light headiness most of the time but all of that started when suddenly i had an attack of a very strong and rapid heart beat as if am scared and lasted for 2 or 3 mins
my endo suspected something called pheochocytoma i ordered another tests like CPK and some others , whts is that and is it treatable
and if i had wht u said why specially aroused after delivery and when could i get bck to normal
Inderal should not be used as this can worsen the fall in blood pressure; you need to discuss this with your doctor.
Pheochromocytoma, is a tumor of adrenal gland and this can cause episodes of anxiety, flushing, tachycardia, high blood pressure, followed by postural hypotension for some duration.
Yes this is very much a treatable condition and can be diagnosed with the help of some blood tests and scans.
An exact time frame can not be given as still the absolute diagnosis is in doubt, and further work up is planned by your doctor, but all these conditions when get diagnosed with certainty can be treated adequately with a good prognosis.
unfortunetly u were not that helpful u were like just a friend making me calm, the article has alot of causes how would i know i am suffering any of them , plus if i should work on with my doc why then u r giving medical advices, u didnt even mention wht other blood tests required itodiagnose my case reading on the net is easy i already read that article but i neeed an expert to help indiagnosing my sickness
well this was helpful, so just correct me if am wrong first i neeed to exclude pheochromocytoma and cortisol disorders, regarding that i made an abdominal ct and found no tumors on the adrenal gland could this exclude the pheochromocytoma
and made acth stim test, my basal cortisol was 7 and jumped to 18 after
, could this rule out anycortisol disorders
and made tilt table test and i fainted during the test is it enough to
rule out brain disorders noting that my brain MRI WAS CLEAR r
so wht do u recommend to take as a nxt steps
