*Insulinoma (insulin secreting tumor) producing recurant hypoglycemia with tachycardia)
*Pheochrocytoma (adrenaline secreting tumor often of the adrenal glands)
*polyendocrine syndome encompassing either or both with possible hypophysitis with ovarian hypofunction or autoimmune oopheritis.

You may have been screened for insulinoma but remember that common screening test use monoclonal antibodies which will not pick up proinsulin.
