I was diagnosed with hyperparathyroidism last August by family doctor, i had to switch to another family doctor because the former didn't do anything to help me after parathyroid scan came out negative. I finally had an appointment with an endocrinologist, i had blood test she confirmed i had hyperparathyroidism. Now I'm waiting on to get another scan and she will send me to a surgeon.
I just started reading about hyperparthyroidism and my main problems are kidney stones, high blood pressure, anxiety/depression/irritability/brain fog/memory loss.
I believe my symptoms started 8-9 years ago in undergrad, because initially i had a high GPA and 4 scholarships then by the last two years of undergrad my GPA drops and i lost some scholarships, I couldn't focus anymore, i couldn't have conversations without getting lost in thought. Classmates thought I was lazy and didn't care about being at University. This whole time i thought i had adhd, i've taken adderal and concerta and still have problems focusing and staying on task.
Recently my father passed away and I didn't have any emotions, i didn't cry or feel bad that he died.
So my question to anyone who has hyperparathyroidism or had it experience a blunting effect on their emotions?
