I don't know where to turn...
I have passed numerous kidney stones in the past ten years...two just this summer alone. And there are more in the kidneys, as noted by my most recent CT scan.
I have had fluctuating blood pressure.
My current serum calcium is normal, though in the past it has been at the "high end of normal".
My PTH has measured normal (currently 20.6 on a scale of 12-65 pg/mL).
My IONIZED calcium is moderately high, (currently 5.52 on a scale of 4.65-5.30 mg/dL).
I developed sudden GERD about four years ago and it has required medication morning and night ever since.
I was recently diagnosed with osteopenia (-1.9), though I also went through an early menopause which could account for this decrease in bone density.
I realize that I have a very confusing picture but am desperately seeking assistance in making sense of it all. I am more than willing to have surgery...in Florida or anywhere else...if parathyroid is at issue. At this point, it's difficult to get a diagnosis.
Meanwhile, my mother suffered with kidney stones for all of her life, which ended when she died of transitional cell carcinoma of the renal pelvis, something which is often related to parathyroid disease.
I thank you in advance for any guidance you might have to offer.
