For the last 4 years I have had severe night sweats and was diagnosed with osteroporosis. I then started having severe body cramping, in spite of taking calcium 4 times a day long with magnesium, D etc. I was sent to an endocrinolgist who ran some blood work for multiple myloma and said she couldn't find anything wrong so dismissed me. I went from dr to dr within my HMO only to be told over and over nothing was wrong. I was in the process of getting approval through worker's comp another back surgery this time with a fusion and asked for another dexa scan. I have osteroporosis so severely, they can't operate now and said I have something wrong and need to find out why my body is sucking up the calcium.
My blood calcium is normal my ionized calcium is high, my 24 hour urine calcium was 19. Normal is 50-250. I asked the dr why and was told it didn't mean anything. Ah, then why give the test? I also have multiple unusual calcifications in my brain. No one knows why. I have been reading about hypoparathyroid, and while I know it is rare, I am wondering about it. I had jaw surgery years ago and maybe the parathyroid was damaged? Maybe this is why I cramp so much, have heart arrhythemias and now severe osteroporosis. At least now I am going to be referred to another endocrinologist. I am furious it was allowed to get to this to be taken seriously. Anyone with experience with this?
