Have you tried anything to bring the NE levels down? Ive heard baking soda can work as well as stuff like 5HTP, theanine, and other anxiolytics. SSRI’s or other meds for more of a punch
For what it’s worth, OAT tests are incredibly useful but they don’t reflect what’s going on in your brain at all so I’d take that with a big grain of salt when it applies to your whole body.
There’s a history there with me and NE. I’ve tried the usual supplements (theanine, many of the things @Hip suggested in his excellent post, GABA supplements) and none of them had any effect. So just about a month ago I went back on a baby dose of Klonopin (.25) and it’s helping a little bit not enough. This week I was playing with Kava.
Given my level of anxiety and depression, I am speaking with my doc next week about going back on an SSRI (I was on Effexor for 12 years and came off over a super slow taper but when I did I went from partially disabled to fully disabled). He was actually in the process of organizing a spinal tap for me so that he and my neurologist could get good measurements of my neurotransmitters in my CNS (before we make any decisions about meds), but now I am not sure that’s going to happen.
I am also considering meds like Baclofen or Memantine as I have burning all over my body so we might be able to hit the neuropathy and the psych issues with one med. I trialed Lyrica in the fall and that didn’t go well )made my POTS worse).
