hyperparathyroidism

Hi, I was diagnosed with "probable ALS" about six months ago. When my blood tests came back 3 weeks ago, the neurologist discovered I had hyperparathyroid disease. She slyly said wouldn't it be great if I had that instead of ALS. But she still gives me "baseline" ALS studies. I'm trying to get a referral to an endocrinologist to stop my motor neurons from dying even more but so far have been unsuccessful in this backwater where I live.
My question is has anyone else been diagnosed with this thyroid disease that mimics ALS?
Thanks, CVH
