Hi Walt.

Do you think I have any of the disorders described on this link?

Thanks so much.

Jan

Hi Jan,

There is nothing like keeping it simple.
The "K.I.S.S. principle is the source of my simplification below.
I have never seen such a collection of pseudo-medical terms to keep the layman out of the diagnosis. I would guess that only those who graduated from a "Liberal" institute of higher learning would fully understand that. (Of course, we all know that Liberals are superior in their own minds.)
(With tongue planed firmly in my cheek to prevent biting it.)

Regarding "Baroreflex" Does you tongue work OK?

Regarding "Dopamine - b - Hydroxalase Deficiency "
Do you have a weak resting heartbeat and are you easily tired?

Regarding "Pheochromocytoma"
Do you respond to stres by panicking instead of fighting back?

Regarding "Neuroblastoma"
Have you been ill for more than a month or two? If so.. NO.

Regarding "Chemodectoma"
Do you faint when you stand up quickly? If so.. Maybe.

Regarding "Familial Paraganglioma Syndrome"
Have you won the lottery lately? If so, then this is also possible with such luck.

Regarding "Tetrahydrobiopterin Deficiency"
Were you recently "born again"? If so, it is possible.

Regarding "Aromatic L- Amino Acid Decarboxylase Deficiency"
Do you have a "vas-deferens"?
Other than that, I wish I had paid more attention in Latin class.

I hope Walt can convey more appropriate comments to calm your fears.

Ron... keeping it simple

Hi, Happygal.

Possibly. It might be worth while investigating these congential susceptibilities. Unfortunately, to my knowledge, there is little that can be done for these (other than naming them). IF you finally did have a specific diagnosis, all it would do is give you a better time table for how long, what you already know, to have an effect.

Since the investigation is likely to be expensive and the benefits of nailing down the diagnosis, are tentative at best, I would be reluctant to get into this for myself.

Hope this is making sense.
