Hi! I dont live in the USA, but I would be really greatful if you could help me somehow. Maybe somebody had the same problems and now is ok, each hint is very valuable for me:)I have tetany since March last year. It has been diagnosed by very strong Chvostek's sign and tetany test (+++), which I made after first attack of spasms. My thyroid seems to be good, I have it checked.The dostors prescribed me magnesium and calcium, vitaminum B6. Unfortunatelly things are getting worse. I am extremly tired, sleepy, cannot concentrate, have muscles, joint and bones aches. This thing is complicating my life so much, cannot work and study, because I get attacks. Because of this everything i got depression, partially because of lack of calcium, partially because i am extremly fed up with treatment that doesn't give anything. The worst thing is that it is affecting my psycho now. Maybe somebody know where this tetany can come from? where to go and who to ask? Endocrinologist says that he cannot help, neurologist doesn't know what to do and psychiatrist( who I also visited) says, that I have to find somatic reason for tetany...I am really powerless and don't know what to do. Thanks for help. Nat.
