I have lupus, sjogrens syndrome, fibro, APS, osteoporosis, osteoarthritis, RA, 2 major strokes, 5 t.i.a's, had breast cancer & had a radical mastectomy. Also have angina, I.A.F, mitral valve regurgetation, Temporal Arteritis, Vasculitis, plus all sorts of problems with my back. I'm in a wheelchair all the time. Had an appointment at the Lupus Clinic at St. Thomas hosp a few mths ago. They emailed my dr to ask her to arrange blood tests for me as when they had done mine it showed up that my PTH levels were very high. Also to do a bone density profile & check vit D levels. She done these & it showed more or less the same as the hosps finding. The lupus clinic said to treat accordingly. So she sent an urgent email to the endocrine & I went yesterday & she said I had Hyperparathyroidism & I wondered if anyone else suffer with this & if they can tell me a bit about it! Sorry to have gone on so much. Thanks very much.
