High Parathyroid with normal calcium. Feel terrible.
I am a 29 yr old female. I have a healthy lifestyle. I am a fitness instructor and I eat healthy. Other than the typical stress of being the mother of 2 toddlers, I should not be feeling as terrible as I do.
I have felt so run down. My muscles ache. My brain is foggy. I'm cranky. I look like I've aged. ETC. I have also gained about 12 pounds in a yr although I teach about 2 hardcore aerobics classes a day (how I do this considering the way I feel, who knows?). I also have breakouts. My hair comes out in the handfuls. But I have a ton of hair so it's not obvious.
ANYWAY, I finally went to a dr.
Tests revel the following
PTH: 76 (normal is 10-65)
Calcium: 9.5 (normal is 8.6-10.2)
Phosphorus: 2.5 (normal is 2.5-4.5)
So, I have high pth with normal calcium, which only leaves more questions.
Has anyone else had results similar to this? If so, what was your final diagnosis?
Thanks so much!
