Are Headaches Associated With Low Dopamine Or Serotonin
Some depression is: Serotonin plays an important role in feelings of well-being vs depression. Low levels can trigger depression and other disorders. Other neurotransmitters involved in depression include acetylcholine & catecholamines (dopamine, norepinephrine, & epinephrine).

Does ibuprofen raise or lower levels of serotonin dopamine or norepinephrine in the brain? Or something else?
There are no levels: There are no "levels" of neurotransmitters (NTs) in the brain. They don't just float around freely as if in blood. NTs are constantly being dynamically synthesized in neurons, being released into synaptic clefts, & within milliseconds undergoing reuptake either before or after the molecules have been destroyed & recycled into making more NTs. Furthermore, NTs differ depending on the brain region. ...Read more

Could depression and anxiety which are linked to low serotonin levels be related to low adrenaline levels?
Possibly: Sanfran: some of the anti-depressants target norepinephrine. These include meds like Cymbalta and effexor (venlafaxine). So yes, it could be possible. That said, the serotonin/dopamine/norepinephrine theory of depression is just one part of understanding depression. I hope that helps! -- dr.

Can low dopamine levels cause cardiac dysfunction? Thanks. I have read that low dopamine levels are related to parkinsons--one of the symptoms being autonomic dysfunction. Could this include cardiac problems--racing, pounding, palpitations?
Unlikely: Low dopamine levels in Parkinson's Disease are specifically related to loss of dopamine producing neurons in the Basal Ganglia of the brain and does not show up on regular blood testing. An isolated low dopamine on blood tests is not in itself is usually meaningless as it is a precursor to epinephrine. It is usually measured to look for high levels of adrenal hormones. What panel was done/why? ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Are there any conditions associated with elevated glycine and low proline? Symptoms are bloated stomach, EGID, hypotonia, normal intelligence

If you know the child's serum levels of proteins there is a condition your PCP is trying to diagnose ? ...Read more
Can a low Vitamin D level of 20 (normal range 33-100) cause any symptoms such as depression or fatigue? I also have POTS syndrome.
Perhaps: I have seen low vitamin D cause fatigue and slow thinking. Usually it's at a level even lower than 20 however anyone with the level of 20 should either take vitamin D3 supplements or get out in the sun. Drinking milk does not help your body's vitamin D level. That said,, my patients with POTS have other reasons for fatigue in general . ...Read more
