I have a rise in BP and HR when I stand or do the slightest things around the house, and also get an elevated Norepinephrine of over 1000 when upright on a tilt table test. When I'm reclined, everything is normal to low. I have been to Mayo, who was no help at all, and local doctors don't know what to do with me. They don't dare give me BP meds because then when I'm reclined, everything goes really low. It's been suggested that it's Orthostatic Hypertension, and not much is known about that. I also get the palpitations, tightness in my throat and many autonomic symptoms. I am 66 yrs. old and still searching for answers myself.
It seems like hyperadrenergic POTS..
Hello just wanted to let you know your not alone. I'm 27 and have been sick with random symptoms for years. My blood pressure and heart rate also goes up every time I stand. I got stomach issues and developed some type of allergy's which i have been told could be Mast Cell since last summer which Im currently having a repeat of symptoms that happen last August. Doctors aren't helping me. I have been to 2 cardiologists and 2 GI doctors. The Cardiologists say my heart is fine i just have tachycardia and prescribed me metoprolol like you. I have talked to them about Hyperadrebergic POTS but they never give me the Tilt Test or try to diagnose me with anything to confirm it. Its very frustrating. I'm tired of having no answers and never knowing how I'm going to feel one minute to the next. I hope you find answers soon. Best of luck!
