Re: So confused...

I have been trying to find a doctor in MN that deals with parathyroid problems, so far have not come up with any. Is there a reliable source that I am not finding, where I can find some docs that will at least do a scan of the parathyroids?? My vitamin D level was on the low end, calcium normal, but my PTH now 209. I have had fibromyalgia symptoms for years, but now the past 6 months have been having heart arrhythmia-type symptoms that have been very troublesome to me. Also dizziness and feelings of 'whoosh' from the chest area that go to the head when laying down. GP doc says it is from sinus stuffiness. Ugh.

GP wants me to take high doses of vit D for next 3 months, then retest PTH, calcium and vit D. I think I may need to take the bull by the horns on this one. I know there is something terribly wrong with the heart/dizziness stuff going on, but EKG, BP, etc is all 'normal'...I have a feeling it is the PTH. I think I will look into the Mayo Clinic website for their docs and departments, the other place I can think of is the University. Also scanning for as much direct info on parathyroids as possible. Perhaps I should look for the scanning machine sestabi (?) in MN and will find a doc that way.
