All I know is the symptoms of hyperparathyroidism seem very similar to those of Fibromyalgia. Deep down I am hoping that maybe if I get my malfunctioning gland removed (hopefully only 1 of the 4 that exist) I will finally feel better!
My calcium level is a 11.3, my PTH is 136, double the high end of normal. I am going to see an endocrinologist next month. My calcium levels were high last year and I asked about the parathyroids (after googling online). My doctor is really great but she kind of wanted to do another test to see if my blood calcium levels would remain elevated, which they did, so that's when I found out about my parathyroid hormone levels also.
I am really hoping that maybe this is what's behind my pains and aches, among all my other problems. I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia at 13, in 1995. I really have always wondered about it over the years....View Thread
