    intact PTH is 122....could this be perimenopausal symptom???


    Im concerned because my calcium is 9.6 and my PTH is 122.

    I havent had a period for 2 1/2 months and I have all the symptoms of perimenopause. I even have an ache in my forearm that hasnt gone away in over a month.

    I went to see the gyn and he says Im in peri. The family doctor wants me to see a neurologist to rule out anything else.

    Could this high figure be a sign of perimenopause? Does it fluctuate?

    Thanks for all your help. Im a neervous wreck.

    By the way, Im 45.......thanks again!

    Not sure the two are related - could be hyperparathyroid and perimenopause. I understand parathyroid problems are common in women in their 40s.

    As posted elsewhere, I had the parathyroid problem 5 years ago (I am 49 years old now). My calcium blood level was only barely above normal, so no one thought it was a big deal. But they it ended up it was slightly elevated at my annual physical in two consecutive years. After some blood in my urine developed, a kidney stone ended up leading them to the parathyroid issue. Even though calcium was only barely elevated, my PTH blood test was 300+ (and normal is 12 to 75). Had a parathyroidectomy of one parathyroid and was much better.

    I am also in perimenopause as well. HRT was the lifesaver for me. Check my posts on other threads for the details.

    Take care - and keep the faith!
    Be well....

    Hi, it could be hyperparathyroidism.
    I hope that you feel better soon.
