para thryoid removal story

Hello
It all started because I visited an endochronologist to see why I lost all my hair. Then was after a dermotologist, homologist, and then the endochronologist could not figure out why and said it was a form or allospecia.
why I was out the homologist (auto immune system), they had me take a blood test which indicated that there was a high amount of calcium in the blood stream. So off to the endochronologist I went and they verified that it was high. I went for extensive testing and they found out that there is a chance that there were 1 or 2 parathryoid glands that are malfunctioning. and then was referred to a gland surgeon who would finalize the decision as to if surgery is needed and to what extent.
In the meantime, I am getting increasingly severe twitching in my arms and legs and noticed a slight increase in the amount of seizures that were occurring which were usually controlled by my epilepsy medicine(I have had epilepsy since birth). After reading that the calcium increase can affect the nervious system, is this possible this is what is happening to me?
Also, because the calcium will hopefully in balance after removal of the affected patrathryoid(s). I have heard others who went through this that there is an overall feeling of calm and restfullness in the body. I am sorry I an asking so much but I am going to be scheduled for this and I want to know of others experiences with it.
Thank you
