Re: Hungry bone syndrome

How do you know when you have it? Did your doctor tell you?

I had surgery a week ago and I'm still having terrible pain in my legs. It feels like the muscles are slightly cramped up all the time, and of course that causes them to ache like I've just run a marathon without stretching... I called my doctor, and the nurse said that it was normal and just to take more calcium.

Yes, the surgeon told me and the endocrin confirmed.

I don't take calcium however, as I do not need to take more. I am on vit D and working it out.

It took about 5 weeks for me to wake one morning and think, "holy blue cats...I don't hurt!"

Re: Hungry bone syndrome

I'm glad it worked out My pain just disappeared one day too.

I went off calcium for a while, but I was still occasionally getting tingly fingers and things, especially when I exercised, so I went back on two pills a day. I know some doctors recommend them forever after parathyroidectomy, so I figured it couldn't hurt.
