.....spine & pelvic pain, itchy eyes, itchy mouth, itchy scalp, clogged ears, hearing loss, feeling stupid!

what the ***l is going on? I was healthy this time last year until i started back at college and started stressing out. I got all these symptoms including anxiety and depression. My mental health has worsened, i cant have a conversation with people anymore i feel really self conscious and stupid and im slow to respond. Heck for all i know im probably only imagining these symptoms? My last blood test, about 6 months ago, showed everything normal except for blood calcium - it was elevated but according to the doctor nothing to worry about. by the way im 21.

  • Hi there - sorry to hear you are feeling so bad!! I clicked on your thread because I am currently off work with alot of your symptoms and am awaiting my blood test results but have been told over the phone that one of my levels is high? I have just googled high levels of blood calcium and something has come up called Hyperparathyroidism. Alot of the symptoms are those that you described and it is quite often misdiagnosed by doctors. The website I was on stressed that it is never normal to have high calcium levels. Hope you take this further with your GP.

  • First off are you on any medications?? Some medications can increase your calcium levels. I am also curious what tests they sent you for and if they checked your hormone levels. Hyperparathyroidism usually comes along with elevated PTH levels (Parathyroid Hormone).You should have your calcium and PTH measured.

  • .....spine & pelvic pain, itchy eyes, itchy mouth, itchy scalp, clogged ears, hearing loss, feeling stupid! to be honest I only have spine pain due to spondilosis..... but the entire picture you're describing could be due to anxiety, you have anxiety symptoms........ if you didn't know anxiety can cause face numbess, numbeness in the arms, blurry vision, headache..........tremors .... chest tightness and so on.... you might want to get a diagnose.
