In brief: Adrenal tumor
The classic triad presentation is headache, sweating and fast heart rate.
Hypertension is the most common presentation. Not uncommonly the high blood pressure and high heart rate come in waves. May not be sustained, sometimes referred to as paroxsymal. Hope this helps.

In brief: A tumor
Pheochromocytoma is a chatecholamine producing tumor. Catecholamines include Epinephrine and norepinephrine.
The tumors are most often in the adrenal gland, but may be found in other tissues.
