Possible hyperparathyroidism
I'm 23 years old and female. I have been experiencing health problems for two years now. My health has dramatically worsened in the past four months. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia around a year ago. I believe this is a misdiagnosis (I don't have the pressure points). My calcium level is 10.2. It bounces around alot. It was 9.8, 9.9, 9.0, and 10.2 within a one month span. My PTH is 32.4. I have a vitamin D deficiency with a level of 22. I just found out a few days ago that I have an abnormal blood protein level of 15.2. I have recently seen a new primary care doctor who believes I show the symptoms of hypercalcemia.
My symptoms are heart problems (high heart rate, low blood pressure, heart palpitations), severe bone pain, throat problems (swelling, pain, difficulty swallowing/breathing), digestive issues (constipation, bloating, indigestion, heartburn, gallstones), development of a milk allergy, large amounts of calcium buildup in mouth, tired all the time/inability to sleep, decrease in memory/trouble concentrating/forgetting things I do everyday.
Any help is appreciated. I have been to so many doctors and I feel like I'm not getting anywhere.

Does not look like hyperpara.  Young patients commonly have high-normal Ca levels.  Would try to correct fitamin D levels to see if this helps.  i assume TSH has been tested for thyroid.  I am not sure which "blood protein" you refer to -- ask you new internist about this as well.

Thanks for your response. My thyroid levels have been checked multiple times and came back normal every time. I was put on Vitamin D a little over a year ago. It made my symptoms dramatically worse so I had to stop taking it.

Some other symptoms I have that I didn't list are kidney pain, hair loss, extreme sensitivity to smells, and a deep cold feeling in my bones when they hurt.
