A recent blood test revealed that my body is producing too much adrenaline. More tests were prescribed, including an ultrasound of my adrenal glands. I've also been fast-tracked for an appointment with an endocrinologist. Should I be worried?

What is the point in worrying? There's no point in panicking or stressing yourself out with worst case scenarios or possible diagnoses. Truly, it holds no value at all. The consultant is the best person to answer your questions and assess your results. Be positive, live well and wait and see what the specialists say before you start building it up to be something awful and life changing (it could just as well not be and you'll have made yourself sick with worry for weeks). flowers. Chin up.
