I really don't know what would cause your symptoms, but if your GP knows about them and doesn't have a plan, I'd suggest looking for another doctor, possibly an endocrinologist.

HI Rhonda.

I totally agree with hypofuzz.  Sometimes you have to find another doc in order to be property treated.  Your health is important and I, too, would find another doc, an endocrinologist.

Best of luck to you and hang in there!!  I know how tough medical problems can be!!

Rhonda,

hi. I know exactly what you mean: I want my life back too. I can't tell you the number of times I have posted that here.

Right now, you have to handle the most important thing. Are you comfortable with the endo's advice? Somehow, I believe we have that inner leading that lets us know when we need to go in a different direction.

There is one thing I have learned on this journey and that is that you can't force your way back to health. That is just more stressful on those lovely adrenals. So just try to rest as much as possible.

Rest and drink plenty of fluids....take care.........Peggy

Compare your symptom to the parathyroid.com website and find a doctor who knows parathyroid disease.

I think you need further testing and AR is a common problem in abnormal parathyroids
