Dont know if all these are related/connected but i'll give you a timeline of my health from the past 8 months. Had a wisdom tooth infection with sore jaw and neck. Then ear infection, then sinus infection which caused me to wake up in the morning with an itchy mouth and lots of sneezing during the day. That has gone away with the help of apple cider vinegar. Got a blood test done and found i had elevated calcium levels in blood, and low in b vitamin though still in the normal range and everything else was fine. Went through a few months of physical stress from college and emotional stress from anxiety. Had a build up of pressure feeling in my skull for a couple of weeks due to me not being able to relax. Then hair started shedding. Loss of a lot of hair. I noticed the hair that is lost some of them were healthy terminal hairs, some of them were exclamation point hairs, some of them were white and black (on the same hair strand) and some of them were thick at top and thinner near the root. My scalp felt like it was under attack, it was so itchy and stingy and huge lumps grew on it. That has stopped now although i do get the odd scalp pimple now and again. My neck also feels stiff when i move it.

I started to relax just 2/3 months ago and symptoms seem to be improving however got another blood test done and still have elavated calcium levels. I went through a mental breakdown last week and feel really weak. I also find it really hard to wake up in the mornings. My college study has gone to ***l, im nearly 2 months behind. Doctor doesnt know whats going on but have another blood test to check my liver.

Im thinking something is up with my adrenal and pituitary gland? Can a doctor tell with normal blood tests? thanks for reading :0

  • Exposure to microwaves can effect calcium efflux, its movement into and out of cells (cell phones, wifi, etc...). Something you might want to consider if nothing else pans out with this mystery. My hair was falling out and I had high calcium levels at one point because of it.

  • Elevated calcium has many reasons .. Hyperparathyroidism, hypothyroidism, granulomatous disease, Multiple myleom.. ... Do you have low BP, nausea, diarrhea, abdominal pain, hypoglycemia? (symptoms of Addison disease)

Even if your calcium goes down again, if your calcium was ever higher than 10.2 you HAVE A TUMOR ON YOUR PARATHYROID and it should be removed.
