    Pheochromocytoma/24 hour urine study

    Hi to all who have suggestions. I had a 24 hour urine study done. I have been experiencing racing heart, palpatations, anxiety, sweating, ect...for the past year. I will post the results with the lab normal values:

    URINE - TIMED STUDY My Values, Normal Values
    TOTAL VOLUME, 24 HR 7800H, 600-2000 mL
    24 Hr Creatinine 4.5H, 1.0-2.0 g/24h
    Epinephrine 19, 0-25 ug/24h
    Norepinephrine 72, 0-100 ug/24h
    Total Catecholamines 91, 20-120 ug/24h
    Dopamine 375, 80-440 ug/24h

    Metanephrine 354H, 44-300 ug/24h
    Normetanephrine 504, 140-820 ug/24h
    Total 858H

    Is anybody familiar with this kind of testing? If so is it possible that I could have a pheochromocytoma, pitituary(thyroid),adrenal, or kidney problem? Any help would be appreciated. Also what type of doctor do I see? Would a Endocrinologist, or Urologists be helpful?
