So confused...

A couple months ago, I had calcium test result of 9.5, PTH was 149...I was supposed to then take some calcium supplements and retest. I faithfully did calcium/D/Mag supplements for two months and just got back my new results of bloodwork: Calcium was 9.3, PTH was 207.
I find information of high calcium/high PTH, low calcium/high PTH, however, I have NORMAL calcium, but my PTH is rising (went from 149 to 207 in two months). With my new results, my doc wants me to take ergocalciferol for a few months, then retest. Does this sound right? I am worried I may have a parathyroid tumor and am not getting the correct treatment. Do I need a different doctor? Any info will help me out! I am doing my diligence trying to research this on my own, with limited luck.
