I assume/hope that SS and you are right about treatment helping my BP. Today's results may partially explain my multiple mood swings with physical symptoms that I experience daily.
I remember thinking about 2 weeks ago that there's something else "going on" health wise, but routine blood tests showed nothing, and doctors didn't say much when I complained of vague symptoms.
You mentioned the adrenaline connection. I recently had episodes of shaking when experiencing what I call adrenaline surges. (surges have been induced by watching exciting shows on TV).
I'm even wondering if my very early awakenings (between midnight and 3 am) could be related.
Many years ago a local radio talk show host (the old fashioned type of talk show, when they talked to authors, doctors, etc..) had an ER doctor on who talked about the worst case of anxiety that he'd ever seen. It turned out the patient was a diabetic who took too much insulin, rather than a person with an anxiety disorder.
