Question re parathyroid

Hi guys. I had a bone scan 2months ago due to migrating bone pain I have had for 3 months. If I had a parathryoid disorder would it show on my bone scan?

I am getting my PT checked, though I did have my T3 and TSH checked and it was fine.

Aside from bone pains, on and off racing heart, extreme joint cracking and muscle twitching I now have horizontal beaus lines on my nails--I read that BL is associated with metabolic disorders...

Re: Question re parathyroid

I would get calcium levels checked and pth in addition to the scan . If you have past calcim labs ask to look at them. I do not think the scan alone could determine this. If calcium and pth are high thats a sure sign. Have you read the dr norman info on the web?

Re: Question re parathyroid

I have, it was very informative. I have a lot of the symptoms, though I do for many things. I had my calcium checked about a month ago it was fine, got it and my PT checked yesterday so am anxious for it to come back. My dr has to find SOMETHING that is making me feel this way!

Does it sound like I have the symptoms?

Re: Question re parathyroid

Well the symptoms could be from that. I have same symptoms but dr norman replied he does not think I have parathyroid tumor. When you get your labs post them and then it should give you an indicator. If it is borderline. I would keep getting the levels checked to see if you have fluctuations in calcium that would point to this. I would also get a thyroid panel done if it was me.

Re: Question re parathyroid

Thanks Michelle...what exactly are your symptoms? Do you feel like you are getting worse each day>?

I really do not know what could cause this moving bone/joint pain and extreme cracking..>I have narrowed it to Lyme (unlikely as I live in SF), PT, or fibro. The thing is, I can get quick shooting pains or longer pulsating ones...

I definitely feel its something in my system. I developed beaus lines last month which I read are caused by metobolic disorders............
