My Mother whom is 79 yrs old is suffering from Nausea and uncontrollable shaking of arms & legs. After having approx 10 blood tests since September, and after many of the GP's saying that she should take fybogel for constipation, and then anti depressants (Good Lord), they finally said it was more than likely down to abnormally high levels of calcium leaking into her blood. We were quite relieved to have found something that finally explained the things she was experiencing. After having waited quite a long time for this diagnosis, she has JUST been referred as URGENT to an Endocrinologist Consultant. I managed to call and talk to him, and he said that although the GP's had marked her file as URGENT, after looking at her charts, he thought that the levels of calcium in her blood were NOT sufficiently high in order to cause the problems she was currently experiencing, and also that it would be approx 9 months before he saw her with an appointment. I asked to go private, BUT no private appointments!! He said we should go back to the GP's to say that it must be something else!! I find this ALL quite unbelievable, really and iF you go back to the GP's, what can you hope to accomplish, absolutely nothing but frustration, absolute frustration! Anyways, was hoping that there would be someone out there whom would be able to help in ANYWAYS as to IF my Mother could be suffering from a sort of Parathyroid Disorder, or does it sound as though this may not be the cause? ANY HELP WOULD BE MUCH APPRECIATED? Many thanks from a concerned son.
