I am a newbie here. In 2008 I had large doses of radiotherapy to head and neck area. In 2011 I was diagnosed with MS/CFS & fibromyalgia and my health has been getting steadily worse including daily headaches with little help from GP. Last week I tried one more time to get help, told the GP I couldn't carry on any more like this and insisted on blood tests. I had blood pressure taken and it was very high. Bloods came back with thyroid out of range and elevated calcium levels, so more bloods taken and nurse mentioned they were for parathyroid. Looking at one site the symptoms for parathyroidism fits especially as I had maximum radiotherapy both sides of head & neck for cancer of unknown primary in 2008. I would like to have done some homework before my next GP appointment when I will be given results, but I expect to be referred to an endocrinologist. Has anyone else had parathyroid problems/tumors and/or can anyone please give me any information or advice. Many thanks
