Hello, well im new here. For the past few months ive been feeling very strange, and have the folkowing symptoms:

constant fatigue
Confusion
Change in mental state like "brain fog"
trouble making making sentences and forgetting words
headaches
frequent urination
strong thirst
pinprick red dots on lots of places on my skin
small wounds which seem to take a long time to heal

It got so bad one night that i went straigt to the doctor the next day. She immediatly told me i needed to go to the hospital for suspected pallpedemia (sp?). So at the hospital i went through enless amounts of tests and finally they said i had hypercalcemia, but they wernet sure whats causing it. They ruled out a brain tumour with a CT scan. Scan of my chest came out fine, no problem with my thyroid glands. Kidney scan revealed kidney stones (caused by the hypercalcemia) i also have a slightly iregular hearbeat. The doctor initially thought that its cancer causing it, but now "he thinks' that my kidneys are causing it and its no big deal. When he told me this my mum was there so i was too afraid to tell him how bad i really felt. so now i have to wait a month to see a kidney specialist. Im not convinced at all, especially as the symptoms are so bad that i cant live a normal life. Anyone have any ideas as to what going on?!

Thanks so much in advance
