28 yr-old with 8 yrs of autonomic, endocrinologic, and inflammatory symptoms, which have both a daily pattern and a seasonal pattern.....?

Psychologial Tx of physical problems: Andrew, your symptoms indicate the strong possibility of being the consequence of conditioning from earlier life experiences. I say this because of their cyclic nature, the act hat the symptoms are physical does not preclude the cause being psychological.
