I have been experiencing some mild non-specific hyperparathyroidism symptoms for a couple of months now - joint and bone pain, headaches, heart palpitations, brain fog, depression and fatigue. The GP brushed my complaints off, so I went and got private lab tests for calcium, parathormone and Vitamin D. Calcium is just slightly elevated (10.8 with the upper bound of 10.2), parathormone is 78 (upper bound 61) and Vitamin D is 11.2 (lower bound 30). I got also a private thyroid ultrasound scan showing a 15mm x 12mm nodule in the left lobe (which I was told to be a common finding and not to worry). I saw the GP once more with the results and she diagnosed this as a winter-time vitamin D deficiency causing elevated hormone and calcium levels and prescribed multivitamins and re-assessment in 6 months time, or to return for an antidepressant prescription if I am not feeling better.
?I do not want to self-diagnose, but I've been taking vitamins for almost a month now and it does not really get any better. Could it be that the thyroid nodule noticed on the ultrasound is actually a parathyroid adenoma, causing my symptoms? Or would a good ultrasound technician know the difference immediately?
