Most often, patients have higher than normal blood pressure. Blood tests help to tell if high blood pressure is from Conn’s Syndrome or something else. The usual treatment for high blood pressure doesn’t generally help treat hyperaldosteronism.
The abnormal electrolyte levels often seen with too much aldosterone lead to signs such as:
- Lack of muscle strength
- Frequent voiding
- Nighttime voiding
- Increased thirst
- Pins and needles feeling
- Eyesight problems
- Paralysis that comes and goes
- Muscle twitching and cramps
The severity may depend on the degree of the electrolyte abnormality.
