Hi I'm a 36 year old male. My story begins in 2012 when I had a routine blood work done and it came out high in serum calcium (10.7). I had several tests done and my doc couldn't find anything wrong except my slightly high calcium levels. My PTH was low and other thyroid tests were all fine. I've been checking my calcium a few times a year for the past 4 years and my calcium levels have been between 9.9-10.7. My doctor tells me not to worry and I wouldn't be worrying if I didn't have any symptoms but unfortunately I do.
Before 2012 I could sometimes feel that I cramped up easily. That has worsened to the point that my muscles can start aching after very little effort. I also have occasional muscle twitches and lower back pain that comes and goes. I feel extremely tired at times and people have commented at my poor memory.
I'm at a point where I don't know what to do. I got a second oppinion from a specialist back in 2013 but that was before my symptoms had worsened. My doctor isn't doing anything and yet I feel my symptoms are really starting to infeer with my everyday life. I've also read up a bit online and elevated calcium is far from positive.
What do you people think here? Anyone in a similar situation?
