So I posted a few months ago thinking I may have hypothyroidism…after a few more months, some increasingly odd symptoms, and lots of anxiety one of my test results came back with high levels of calcium, which could be nothing (the doctor said possibly dehydration) or it could point to hyperparathyroidism. The symptoms seem to fit and honestly at this point I’d be happy to have a diagnosis and know that I’m not just being a hypochondriac. I think it would require surgery and may delay our plans to TTC (we are planning on starting in October) but hopefully wouldn’t push things back by too much…Does anyone here have any experience wtih this?

I’ve had thyroid issues: subacute thyroiditis which first made my thyroid hyperactive, then it turned underactive. I was on thyroid replacement hormone for a year before it went back to normal. Now I don’t have to take any medication. Go see an endocrinologist and bring your test results. I don’t know what calcium has to do with your thyorid (I’m not a doctor). Blood TSH levels are what show a doctor info about your thyroid function.

it’s her parathyroid, not thyroid. Parathyroid glands control the body’s calcium levels. So high levels of calcium in the body can point to an issue with the parathyroid glands.
I don’t know much about hyperparathyroidism but we do nuclear scans for that diagnosis where I work. I agree that seeing an endocrinologist is a good idea. Has your doctor referred you to one yet?
