Hyperparathyroidism and emotions
Ahmed hussain last edited by
I just started reading about hyperparathyroidism 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 dropped and I lost some scholarships, I couldn't focus anymore, I couldn't have conversations without getting lost in thought. My 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 experienced a blunting effect on their emotions?
@ahmed-hussain I have diagnosed 1.5 yrs ago and had one gland removed 1 yr ago I suffered from high blood pressure, anxiety and osteopenia before surgery after surgery my blood pressure dropped dramatically 2 weeks after removal of the gland, allowing me to eliminate one medication and cut the other in half...my bone loss was reversed and gaining bone mass back anxiety is better
make sure you have an experienced surgeon with lots of experience removing these tumors. this is very important as an inexperienced surgeon could do more harm
most symptoms are completely reversible hope this helps
