I wonder if anyone out there can give me some advice please.
I started having episodes of palpitations around 2 months ago - with sometimes (I suspect) atrial fibrillation.
The worst episodes of atrial fibrillation have taken to to A & E, where it was discovered on the first visit that I had raised calcium - 2.77 I think. The last visit to A & E was on 3rd October - calcium level was 2.83 (I think) and vitamin D 30. I was admitted and was treated with 3 litre of sodium chloride by IV to flush out the calcium. After that I was given phosphate solution due to low phosphate. I have also been given a 5 week supply loading dose of vitamin D.
I have had CT Scan, 24 hour heart monitor and heart echo - waiting results. I am being booked in for an outpatients appointment with a consultant endocrinologist at the beginning of December but I am waiting for the appointment to come through.
After being flushed out with salt water I had been advised to get a blood test on Monday and on Thursday I had booked an appointment with my doctor to try and get things moving, as I am self employed and cannot effectively work, as I don't know which days I am going to have many symptoms - a bit difficult as the last twice I have attempted work - travelling to work I had major health problems and ended up at A & E.
Calcium level was 2.72 from Monday's blood test. I was hoping to be referred for a private consultation when I discussed my symptoms with my doctor. I am not normally one to get angry but I could have exploded. After telling the doctor about difficulties driving and how ill I felt and whether I should try and go to work/driving etc. he said he would no problem.
Has anyone got any advise about how I could move things on?
Symptoms so far are:
Slight headaches (normally I rarely have headache)
Light-headedness (not really dizzy but that kind of feeling)
A kind of slight disturbance in vision (when I close of eye it goes away)
Discomfort under the neck end of my right collar bone (also bottom of right side of neck sometimes)
Strange sensations in chest
Strange sensations in abdomen
Feeling of nausea (particularly first thing in morning)
Tiredness (even several days after palpitations)
Feeling very thirsty (particularly first thing in morning)
Strange random pains in bones, back, neck, arms, legs
Muscle weakness particularly lower legs first thing in morning
After phospahate infusion I and had the following symptoms afterwards: Muscle tremors (large movements) Short spells of crying/laughing for no reason. Slight tremors have continued.
