Facet or lysis: Pain caused by extension or arching of the back is often caused by elements of the spine called facet joints. Irritation of these joints or a stress fracture nearby could cause these symptoms. If associated with a shooting pain into the legs, then there could also be nerve irritation. To minimize pain, avoid extension and try otc meds as tolerated. See our doc if pain persists. ...Read more

Can bisoprolol withdrawal cause hyperthyroidism? I've had a Fast heart rate, aches on my legs, back. And feeling tired from that adrenaline feeling

Small non life threatening suprises give me an enormous adrenalin rush, so much I shake and have to sit down. This recently started a few months ago?

Zebra: Hi. There is an extremely rare condition in which an adrenal gland over secretes catecholamine hormones, but it's so rare that even we endocrinologists see it very infrequently. The cardinal symptoms are headaches, palpitations, sweating, and tremor, and the cardinal signs are high blood pressure and fast heart rate. If I had to bet, I'd bet you don't have it just because it's so rare (a "zebra") ...Read more

Can Flonase cause your body to feel more anxious or like you have a little more adrenalin being released?

Can Flonase cause your body to feel more anxious or like you have a little more adrenalin being released?

Unusual: Nasal steroid sprays such as Flonase are usually well tolerated. The most common side effect is nose bleeds. They don't cause a release of adrenalin. While anxiety is not a typical side effect, if the nose spray is stopped and the symptoms go away, that would suggest a link. It would be important to exclude other reasons for the anxiety symptoms. ...Read more

Possible: The extra heartbeats and the rapid heartbeat could be related to adrenaline, which may be in response to your dysautonomia.

Can hyperinsulinism in response to eating sugars cause a fast glucose drop and then hyperadrenalism thus resulting rollercoaster of insulin adrenalin?

Can hyperinsulinism in response to eating sugars cause a fast glucose drop and then hyperadrenalism thus resulting rollercoaster of insulin adrenalin?

"Pop" claim: This speculation by some physiologists is dogma in some circles (especially the anti-refined sugar folks) but has little experimental support. Bread and potatoes produce almost as sharp a glucose spike as candy and fruit / juice, but they're more nutritious. The familiar postprandial shakiness is indeed about a rapid catecholamine response -- think stress, caffeine, etc. ...Read more

Can adrenal fatigue cause low grade fever? Are progesterone and estrogen levels related to adrenalin and cortisol?

Can adrenal fatigue cause low grade fever? Are progesterone and estrogen levels related to adrenalin and cortisol?

Dubious diagnosis: "adrenal fatigue" is a pop diagnosis, not an evidence-based one. Since true addison[s isn't a febrile illness, this isn't either. I've wondered if the "subclinical addison's" claims might have something to them, but would urge you not to self-diagnose. The danger of self-diagnosis / treatment is missing another real emotional, situational or physical problem. Your doctor should work your temp up. ...Read more

I had my adrenaline & cortisol tested. The adrenaline was normal (at the lower end of normal) but the cortisol was high. What could cause this?

Many causes: Including the stress of a needle blood-draw. A spot cortisol means very little, though a high-normal value in the morning may rule out addisonism. Wondering why you were tested in the first place -- labs mean nothing at all in the absence of a patient history. Your physician has a duty to explain exactly what's going on and what the labs mean. ...Read more

Can staying indoors and being sedentary cause me to have problems with adrenaline and cortisol? I can feel the adrenaline and when it decreases

Sorry: Hi. You're attributing symptoms to things that aren't the problem. No, no evidence to show that staying sedentary indoors will cause over-secretion or under-secretion, or disordered secretion of either cortisol or epinephrine. However, I'm sure all the docs will agree with me when I advise you get up, get out, and be active. It's good for you physically & psychologically! Best of luck! ...Read more
