Went to the holistic doctor today and got my test results for my urine levels of Neurotransmitters. Dopamine is fine, and so is GABA (probably because I take the maximum dose of it already). Everything else was way, way, way below normal. The doc explained that my extremely low level of epinephrine ( only 1/8th of the lowest normal range)would result in a very low energy level. My very low level of norepinephrine (only 1/3 of the lowest normal range) would result in more than normal anxiety levels (this is the source of my over-reactions, not a cortisol problem). My very low serotonin (only 1/3 of the lowest normal range) would make me very unhappy with people and situations in life in general (this is the source of my personality chancges that are causing me to isolate myself). The treatment will be primarily hormonal (progesterone drops) since menopause can lower these levels, and that is when my trouble started. He would also like me to take the amino acid L-tyrosine, but I have high blood pressure, so that is risky. He wanted me to take 5-HTP as well, to raise my serotonin, but my gut cannot tolerate it at all. Having these tests done was very worthwhile. I feel like that gravestone: "See, I told you I was sick". But, it may be hard with all my sensitivities to find ways to treat these problems. For those who may be interested in the tests, they are done by a company called NeuroScience in Osceola, Wisconsin. The test kit for Neurotransmitters is #9012. This test is paid for by Medicare, but no other insurance will pay for it. I believe it costs about $120. Klutzo P.S. For those following my other post about abnormal fibrinogen, etc....he is having me retake that test, since it was only two pts. too high. He also told me to not renew the Nystatin, and try OLE instead....said he never saw anyone lower their BP on it, so I should just monitor it carefully and titrate the dose.
