  • I had a very large pheochromocytoma of adrenal gland removed after many years of heart attacks, sweats, headaches, shaking, vomiting, and severe anxiety. Unfortunately, a second pheochromocytoma has been found on the remaining adrenal gland. It is growing and it is affecting my blood pressure. I am currently taking medication to control my blood pressure, but I am still having symptoms. Are you aware of any medication that would help with the symptoms of pheochromocytomas?
