high calcium levels

My calcium was 10.3 (Dec 2016) a year ago. 9.5 in October (2017), 9.8 in early January (2018) and now 10.6 (mid January 2018).  

Doc is sending me for PTH,Intact & Ion Calcium blood work now.

Does it seem odd that is keeps jumping around, albeit all still high or on the higher side?

Your additional tests should give the doctor more to go on.

I don't think it is too unusual for Calcium test results  to vary somewhat; however, when you start having repeat results above 10, then it is time to get additional testing done.  What, if any, symptoms do you have?

no symptoms really.  I feel fine.  This was just found during routine annual blood work.
