We have alot in common! I, too, battle hi b/p and spilled catecholamines in my urine. I went to the mri scanner to rule out the possiblity of an adrenal tumor, too. Basically, because of my systemic/cns lupus, and my arteries being inflammed alot, my b/p is not very good. And twice I have had scary episodes where I was literally peeing bubbles. My urine was so foamy I thought I was losing my mind and had cleaned the toilet without remembering it. Next time it happens, I pee in a cup or a ziplock baggie and take it to my family doc. I am blessed to have drs. that believe me. I worry about lupus nephritis. God bless and hang in there for your tests. Hey, they are a reason for us to get up in the morning!
