    Just found out my plasma epinephrine is elevated. Anybody got references on this or experience with it?

    Mine is low, but I was told that tests on such things are worthless as they fluctuate constantly.

    Actually, I found something interesting myself.
    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4858924/
    This was a study in adolescents with ME but may apply to the older among us as well.

    "
    Results
    A total of 120 CFS patients and 68 healthy controls were included. CFS patients had significantly higher levels of plasma norepinephrine, plasma epinephrine and plasma FT4, and significantly lower levels of urine cortisol/creatinine ratio. Subgrouping according to other case definitions as well as adjusting for confounding factors did not alter the results. Multivariate linear regression models as well as network analyses revealed different interrelations between hormones of the HPA axis, the SAM system, and the thyroid system in CFS patients and healthy controls. Also, single hormone degree centrality was associated with clinical markers within the CFS group."
