I have tachycardia and high blood pressure, constant headaches

Customer Question

I have tachycardia and high blood pressure, constant headaches as well as a cranial nerve disorder. Left side of face is droopy compared to right. Limited forehead movement on that side. Mri and ct came clean other than a 1cm pineal cyst. Blood and spinal tap normal as well. Renal scan clean. Mild lvh and tricuspid regurgitation on echocardiogram. 1.5cm lymph node on neck but atill considered normal. Any ideas as to what could be going on? I run a mild 99.9 fever constantly and the headaches are getting worse. Blood pressure and tachy are lowered woth medication but still as a 21 y/o active body building male, 140/90 and 90bpm is a resting rate.

Without medication i run 165/90-185/100. I have had the nerve disorder for about a year. I have a tilt table next week as they said my pulse spikes when i stand, but i domt have fainting episodes. Slight light headness when standing but fogured that was normal. I am on carvedol, nortriptyline, ambien( i get very little sleep) and amlodipine. I know pots is a possibility as i meet the criteria, but what about the headaches and 7th cranial nerve palsy and ptsosis? I tested negative for MG. current neuro believes it has something to do with autonomic disorder?
