I have been having odd symptoms for almost 5 yrs. & seperately they didn't "impress" my dr. at all, but have been driving me crazy!
While doing a search for orthophosphoric acid for a cleanse I found this site by accident with this list of Parathyroid Symptoms: http://www.parathyroid.com/parathyroid-symptoms.htm
Just don't feel well; don't quite feel normal. Hard to explain but just feel kind of bad.
Loss of energy, Don't feel like doing much. Tired all the time, depression
Feel old. Don't have the interest in things you used to.
Can't concentrate, or can't keep your concentration like you used to, forget simple things you used to remember [IQ of 136 & nowdays can hardly remember what happened yesterday!]
Osteoporosis and/or osteopenia [I have both]
heart palpitations [caused anxiety attacks so bad that psych put me on meds]
arrhythmias, [my rate dropped to 38 & they did immediate catheterization thinking I needed by-pass! found NO blockage!]
thinning hair, recurrent headaches, decreased sex drive,
irritable & harder to get along with [you bet! can't get anyone to believe me!]
don't sleep like you used to - wake up in the middle of the night
loss of energy -don't feel like doing much - tired all the time,
blood pressure up & down alot - high blood pressure, sometimes mild, sometimes severe
GERD, heartburn, kidney stones
- those last 3 are the only on here that I have NOT experienced or complained to my primary about. I got so disgusted & desperate I even went to endocrinologist last year & he said I was fine because calcium did not test high...
2 yrs ago I had hair analysis done & "strontium" level was OFF the chart [not strontium 90, the radioactive one] this strontium is "paired" with calcium - the biochemist told me that the high st levels was causing calcium release into blood stream that was acting like a "calcium channel blocker" drug & that was affecting my heart rate causing bradycardia [low heart rate] The phosphorus/calcium ratio was 5.38/1 normal is 2.60/1
Went back to primary & she said that was voodoo medicine & you could test hair every day & it would be different.
I need some advice on who to ask about this, what specifically to say to make them take me seriously and/or WHERE TO GET SOME HELP
Is it possible for Thyroid test to be in normal range [my last TSH was 2.152] if parathyroid is NOT? They didn't test that. I guess they don't unless calcium shows abnormal; but the site I copied that list from said that many don't test way high for calcium & still have parathyroid tumors or problems! I just could really use some pointers on where/what to do next. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
