Hello, all. I'm new and I've been struggling with an illness for nearly a year, maybe longer. My endocrinologist found three nodules in my thyroid/parathyroid area. They look benign, but she is doing a biopsy in a few weeks. In the meantime, I have neck pain/tenderness, scaly skin, migraines, heartburn, GERD, nerve pain that runs down my neck and through my body, fatigue, depression and kidney stones.
The doc thinks it has something to do with my thyroid glands, maybe goiter. So why is my parathyroid hormone a 71 one day and a 40 the next? And why does my calcium vary between a 10.4 and a 9.4? I've also had problems keeping my Vitamin D levels up. This sounds like a parathyroid problem, so I guess my question is, can a thyroid issue cause parathyroid disease symptoms?
