Pheochromocytoma: There are whole books written about the symptoms of pheochromocytoma. Classics are hypertension, headache, hyper metabolism, hyperhidrosis, and hyper heart rate. Some will have cafe-au-lait spots. Some will have neurofibromatosis. You can google these images and see if you have them. This is a deadly disease that I specialize in and happy to do 2nd opinion to help you and your team .
