Hello. Just received a diagnosis of PA two weeks ago. My primary symptoms are weakness and nausea. I'm taking shots every week (4 weeks then review of levels) and 50,000 u of Vit D. per week for 8 weeks. My initial level was 68. Next week I'll be learning to give my own shots (kinda nervous about that one.) Reading these post have been very educational and encouraging. I try not to get nervous about it but this is the first time I have been seriously ill although I understand I have had the disorder all of my life. I'm 52. My biggest fear is fainting while speaking (I am a public speaker).
