Multifactorial: There a several potential causes for the syncope in this lady. Of concern is that the episode on August 4th occurred without warning. This could be arrhythmic in origin. Although a Holter has been done the patient may need an Event Monitor and if this is negative an implantable monitor may be needed. We need to make sure she has normal LV function by Echo etc as she does have a history of PVC's. Vasodepressor syndrome needs to be also considered as she does have some features compatible with this. TTT would be reasonable. Finally hypotension secondary to the endocrine problem needs to be considered. Perhaps she might need a vasoactive medication as she does have hypotension. ...Read more

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.

Treatment by Subliminal Therapy is my first recommendation with Hypnotic methods being second (www.asch.net for a referral for hypnosis). Medications can mask symptoms but do not address the problem itself. When you resolve the cause of a problem, you eliminate its symptoms. Best wishes, Dr. Yager ...Read more

Test results: You are analyzing your test results and getting panicky. Relax. Talk to your doctor, who is in the best position to connect the dots. A "spot" on the adrenal may be nothing and the other test results may not be significant either. Test results need to be interpreted in the context of your symptoms and physical exam, and how much outside the normal range. ...Read more
