Just wondering if anyone else has high serotonin levels? 
The normal on the test I took is between 100 and 225 and mine is 305.

I don't take any meds that I think would cause this.

I thought I read online it can cause anxiety, insomnia, and low metabolism to name a few. I do have all of those.

Just thought it was worth a discussion. Any else?

From what I have read, the symptoms you list are normally from LOW seratonin. Interesting that yours is high, all the Lymies I know have lower than normal levels. Mine is about 50, I was told to take tryptophan, to make more seratonin.  D

 Hey guys, please let me know if you find anything else out about this issue.  My serotonin level tested at 320, which is a lot higher than it should be.  I do have problems with my appetite, and have had chronic diahrrea for the past 7 months.

Could it possibly be Serotonin Syndrome?
The article shows some possible bad drug combos.  Like taking tramadol and an SSRI.
Lyme, anxitey, depression, chronic C. Pnuemoniae
