I have another question regarding my low calcium issues. I have been keeping track of when I have more symptoms and it always corresponds with when I am ovulating (mid-cycle) and menstruation. They seem to cause severe calcium drops. I have also noticed worse symptoms if I am more physical (which is every day). Is there some sort of hormonal treatment that could stop my symptoms around menstruation, and /or eliminate them since it seems to bring them on? Should I look for a less physically demanding job in the hopes it may cause my calcium levels to resolve?
Also, I have had 2-3 times where my calcium went TOO high and I have had nausea and vomiting. It is hard to tell sometimes because some symptoms of high and low are similar (numbness in head and muscle weakness for example), but when my blood test was taken, it revealed high to normal calcium levels. Two to three days after each episode (during which I take less calcium because otherwise I feel severly nauseous), it drops once again. Does this mean my parathyroids are attempting to work? My last PTH was 7.5 and I was told by the surgeon that she saw two parathyroids leaving the`scene at surgery. It would be nice to have some hope because I am really suffering with the hypocalcemia. Most people seem to find the right dose and live with it fine, but my body is constantly going up and down.
