I have been suffering with what I call bone pains for a long time now in legs and forearms I have had been classed as depressed and stressed causing my pains and fatigue and then they discovered I had a slightly high pth and low vit D they referred me to the endocrinology department and he said it was post traumatic stress and would send me for a bone scan to check my bones as my pth was slightly high but my calcium was ok. He gave me vitamin d to take too. I had my bone scan and then they sent for me again. I walked in and the consultant said I am referring you to a surgeon you have osteopenia and need your parathyroid surgery. This took me by surprise. He was adamant I didn’t have a problem then the next appointment he was adamant I needed surgery ??? I’m worried now do I?? don’t I ?? I also suffer with headaches not all the time but them come for a few days with dizzy spells and I’m wiped out. does anyone else just have mild symptoms but bone pains and I say they feel like what growing pains did as a child but all everything else seems ok only a slight raised pth level but the bone density says low bone density. I’m not a smoker I’m a young 42 I’m not thin or anorexic I’m a average size 12 ( smoking and anorexia can cause thin bones ) i see the surgeon tomorrow for the first time, and reading the forums everyone seems worse than me with symptoms. anyone else have the smae as me ??
