My primary care doc had me tested for parathyroid hormone level since my blood calcium level has been consistently a little high. The parathyroid level test showed high, so I'm being referred to a specialist to determine the best way to move forward. As always I am doing internet research on whatever the doctors say might be wrong with me. Maybe half the list of symptoms for hyperparathyroidism reads like a list of side effects for TKI meds. Cardiovascular effects such as high BP or A-fib, brain fog, mood changes (grouchiness), stomach issues like GERD or heartburn, bone pains, headaches, kidney problems and other complaints. The other thing that struck me was that blood Calcium levels don't have to be much above the minimum abnormal threshold to cause the symptoms. Interesting article on parathyroid issues explains all.
