I know it's been a yr since you posted this,but hopefully you are doing better! I have the same issue from a total thyroidectomy and it took me almost a yr to find a dr to figure out what was wrong with me. They apparently took my parathyroids out also and i have been suffering from hypocalcemia. This is a dangerous problem that you need to take care of. I don't want to scare you but i also want you to understand that if you don't get enough calcium you can have a heart attack or go into shock. I'm not a dr but ive had to do a TON of research on this for myself. My dr has me on calcitiol and i take calcium with vit d. I also take 6 tums daily (highest dose).I still sometimes get tingly toes and tingly cheeks. Its horrible to have these episodes!! the brain fog and feeling of dread.Unfortunaltely this is a life long issue for me,but hopefully your parathyroids woke up. hope all is well!View Thread
