Too much epinephrine in the body

Common Questions and Answers about Too much epinephrine in the body


Avatar f tn Epinephrine is the a hormone and neurotransmiter. It is produced by the adrenal gland an is a "fight-or-flight catecholamine." So is norepinephrine. In biochemistry, the prefix "nor" means that norepinephrine is an analog of epinephrine. They function quite differently in the body. epinephrine is most commonly thought of in terms of t effect on the sympathetic nervous system - increasing heart rate, increasing blood pressure, hyper alertness, etc.
Avatar f tn an infected tooth has a direct impact on the heart and with atrial fib causes the heart to become irritable because it is fighting too much...i was never so happy in my life to get that back molar out of there....within hours i physically felt 100% better and not a single issue of atrial fib i listen a little closer to what my doc says about teeth....i think i could buy a Porsche with what i have put into my mouth these last couple of years.....
Avatar m tn Is it possible to be addicted to an Epinephrine inhaler (Primatene Mist)? The short story: I'm an asthmatic smoker (trying to quit, trust me). I lost my insurance several years ago and had to start using Primatene Mist to control my asthma as doctor fees and prescriptions cost way too much when you're without insurance. As you may know, Primatene is going off the market December 31st of this year (2011) so I was in a quandary.
Avatar f tn Hey...I answered most of your question in my reply to the previous response post...yes, anxiety can surely be caused by MVP and the reverse is true too if one is already genetically disposed to runs in my family though I never noticed my *heart* until I got zapped by a dentist with too much epinephrine that, in his words, "...went directly to your are not going to die! you are not going to DIE!" ...I think he was trying to convince himself more than me...
1214626 tn?1288109814 You will sleep when your body really needs it. If you ever feel tired take the opportunity to nap-even if it's in the middle of the day. Don't worry about messing up your sleep schedule because it's already messed up .Grab a nap whenever you can. Your sleep will become more regular with time. It's past midnight for me and I'm probably going to be up all night (again). I'm going on a month of clean and I'm still having problems. It's just the nature of the beast.
Avatar m tn When the baby is pushed through the birth canal his/her body is squeezed and much of the embryonic fluid that is in the lungs during pregnancy is pushed out of the baby. When there is a quick delivery, or sometimes even with a normal delivery, there is often some fluid left over. This makes baby cough a bit, and until it is all expelled it can be scary, but in today's hospitals, the situation is well prepared for and there are rarely serious complications.
Avatar f tn I don't know whether the disc bulges are in the critical vertabrae but they are on the C4-5 and C5-6 levels. During my last CBC I had slight anemia but it could be because I had diarrhea at that time. I don't think tests were done for ferritin and iron levels.
Avatar f tn W cant sleep well..always pain..shakey...and my SED rate (imflamation in the body)... Should be below 14 but is always in the 50's up to the 70's. My doc puts me on 2 week therapy of prednisone which helps a little but since im also going through menopause the prednisone screws up my hormones so bad i end up having several very painful periods two weeks apart. Prednisone is a bad can severly mess you up So now both mom and i just suffer horribly with pain.
Avatar f tn and your getting hits of too much adrenal and then not enough, which could create the impression of the anxiety sx playing up too. All speculatary of course but hopefully you'll get the point i'm trying to make and thats not to say that it's not totally understandable, if you do experience an increase in your anxiety levels, when your body is making you jump through never ending hoops. Ask your self the question, and maybe the underlying issue will be clearer, hopefully anyway. Cheers.....
Avatar n tn The activity of lipoprotein lipases depends upon the levels of insulin in the body. If insulin is high, then the lipases are highly active; if insulin is low, the lipases are inactive. The fatty acids are then absorbed from the blood into fat cells, muscle cells and liver cells. In these cells, under stimulation by insulin, fatty acids are made into fat molecules and stored as fat droplets.
Avatar f tn It ain't a sinus infection and an MRI and CT scan probably won't show much. Calcium is utilized in contraction of the muscles surrounding the blood vessels, and this might be a factor. The heart rate increase is compensatory. Not too hard to explain. It certainly is not a psychiatric issue. But this isn't a problem to be fooled with on an internet board.
468408 tn?1208436609 the rest of the vitamins can and will be excreted in the urine if the body does not need them...that is why it is a good idea not to take 3 at once but to spread it out over the day so that the body can absorb it, otherwise you have wasted them into the toilet...aminos are protein molecules and is some work on the kidneys to excrete as are big molecules...
Avatar m tn If you don't feel nervous, then somehow your body is generating too much heat inside your body. To cool down, drink cold water and don't go to saunas or any hot places. If your hands feel sticky, that means your sweaty and overheating and producing this allergic gas. That's my follow-up comment. See below for my old post. OLD POST: I'm a girl. I've had PATM for about 15 years, but I think I have been 90% cured.

Avatar f tn I have been reading all the posts and comments on this site for days and hours and have lined up for time off work. I am going shopping for supplements and Immodium, magazines. I am going to clean the house, all the sheets and pillow cases and get ready to just STOP!!! I am not looking forward to the physical pain and discomfort but I am terrified of the depression and lack of motivation and how long that is going to last once the detox is done. Nobody seems to know how long that lasts.
Avatar f tn I have highly abnormal auditory evoked potentials (never had VEMP), but the neurologist didn't seem to think this meant much in the context of an essentially normal neuro exam and only nonspecifically spotty MRIs (despite many symptoms, some of them very suggestive of MS, such as Lhermitte's). So, I would be surprised if an abnormal VEMP result would get you anywhere in a diagnosis of MS unless there were other things more specific for it.
685623 tn?1283485207 As you many already know, peanuts are not served on airplanes anymore because the peanut dust would get into the recirculated air of the plane and cause reactions in passengers. This editorial says that pet dander can cause the same sort of problem and could be easily remedied by putting the pets into the cargo hold of the plane. BUT..
Avatar n tn The symptoms are hives or spots (large or small), itching of the skin, flushing (redness) of the skin and this can occur anywhere on the body other than the chest area. Most symptoms can be controlled by taking medications your physician prescribes and by slowing down or stopping your exercise as soon as symptoms start. You should always exercise with a partner who knows about your condition.
Avatar f tn About 15 months ago I had another acute Asthma attack. I ended up in the hospital and on the steroids. I needed epinephrine nebs this time. I was bronched and the pulmonologist who had done the other 2 stated that there was muscle weakness, "like a little bit of tracheal malasia" but not to worry. This was January of 2007 I went back to work at my new job. This brings me to the past 6 months.
Avatar f tn I did have him stand up for 3 minutes and it shot up to 98 but went right back down when he sat down. So he's just beat. Can't muster the energy to do much. We got the corrected results back on his 24-hour urine and it still showed elevated VMA levels, although moderately elevated now. We will wait till the blood test comes back and then figure out where to go from there...
Avatar n tn Incredible that this chain has been going on for 3 years! I too have the bursting blood vessels in my hands - mostly my fingers, but has happened in the palm of my hand as well. Many folks who are posting are thin & athletic... I used to be athletic, but never really "thin" more the muscular type. Not really athletic anymore as I just don't have the time to work out - wish I did. Latest burst was last night. Unscrewing the cap from a bottle of juice & "pop"..
634733 tn?1316629592 - I think I answered this earlier in the history.. Other causes of chronic cough include aspiration, a foreign body- silen aspiration was mentioned by my GP only once and dismissed by my MS nurse. Have you at least had a chest X-ray? Yes and it was normal Have they tried a bronchodilator? - No Have you had basic Pulmonary Function Tests? No If reflux were the cause you would see a pretty prompt improvement - certainly by the second week. – did some research on this and Prof.
529075 tn?1213463650 Anaphylaxis is generally used to describe a serious and life-threatening allergic reaction. During an anaphylactic reaction, various tissues in your body release histamine and other substances. When you experience difficulty in breathing, it is very important that you see your doctor right away and should be given an epinephrine shot. I hope this helps.
Avatar m tn Idk I think it's deeper than too much masturbation that is causing the anxiety! I would def get a medical opinion ! Good luck! AP Ps for me sex is one of the few things in life I'm actually anxiety free!
Avatar m tn Your doctor should look at actual thyroid hormone levels—Free T4 and Free T3. T4, the storage form of thyroid hormone, is converted into T3, the active form. Sometimes the body has trouble changing T4 into T3, so it’s important to know what both levels are. Chronic stress and too much estrogen can interfere with this conversion, resulting in a low T3 level. Elevated thyroid antibody levels suggest autoimmune thryoiditis, or Hashimoto’s disease.
Avatar n tn glad to hear from someone in the 40-50 age bracket! I hate it, too!! I am 45, and the last 3 years these palpitations/bad rhythms...whatever they are/, are just increasing and getting more intense. I agree with most people on this board, dr.s do not seem to get it or take it seriously. I do a lot of research into peri-menopause, and think it is directly related to these issues. I think the change causes many of our problems.
Avatar n tn On one ayurvedic website it said this should only be used in consultation with a trained herbalist or physician, due to the possibility of serious side effects if too much is used, but in proper amounts (and, as usual with herbs, in conjunction with other herbs), it's mostly used for hypertension, and the active ingredient was isolated in the 1950s and used for this purpose but proved to have too many side effects.
Avatar n tn Hypoglycemia is the body's inability to properly regulate blood sugar levels, causing the level of sugar in the blood to be too low or to fall too rapidly. Blood sugar, in the form of glucose, is the basic fuel for all brain operation and physical activity, including muscular. If the available fuel is too inadequate, any marginal physical or mental system may start to shut down.
Avatar f tn This backed up Portal Pressure (Portal Hypertension) seeks other passage around the liver, and the next in line are the veins lining the Upper GI Track (stomach and esophagus). When these veins swell they are called Varices, and they are highly susceptible to rupture. It happened to me on three different occasions causing severe bleeds. They can use various medications such as Beta Blockers to try to control this.
Avatar m tn Have experienced this symptom for years, my flashes tend to be mainly in the left eye occasionally in the right, I too have many floaters. Would agree with the tension thing in the shoulders and neck and like others on here I'm a worrier. Have had an eye exam all seems OK, I think that there is truth in the fact that the brain does seem to draw attention to them and may well be a psychological thing/stress thing.
