    Complete list of symptoms that docs really don't want to hear at one time. Been going on for over 15 years. Headaches, low BP with high spikes that make me fall down, heart racing, hot flashes not related to menopause, cysts on top of each kidney, low white count and platelet count often, sores on head in nose and on face, so tired don't feel like doing anything, can't sleep without all the meds and then I only sleep a short time, positive anti-nuclear test. I feel like I am going crazy and now this rash is everywhere.

    Have your doctor check for Pheochromocytoma. I had all those symptoms and more. Pheo had grown around blood supply to kidney so it had to come out too. Much better since the surgery but I still have IBS, bipolar 2, low T, neuromuscular pain, one doctor wants to call it fibromyalgia

    Have you had a sample taken of the sores to test them? One time I had a sore on my leg, they scraped a sample and performed a wide variety of tests on it. F 34 CA
