  • Just don’t feel well; don’t quite feel normal. Hard to explain but just feel kind of bad.
  • Feel old. Don’t have the interest in things that you used to.
  • Can’t concentrate, or can’t keep your concentration like in the past.
  • Depression.
  • Osteoporosis and Osteopenia.
  • Bones hurt; typically it’s bones in the legs and arms but can be most bones.
  • Don’t sleep like you used to. Wake up in middle of night. Trouble getting to sleep.
  • Tired during the day and frequently feel like you want a nap (but naps don’t help).
  • Spouse claims you are more irritable and harder to get along with (cranky, bitchy)
  • Forget simple things that you used to remember very easily (worsening memory).
  • Gastric acid reflux; heartburn; GERD.
  • Decrease in sex drive.
  • Thinning hair (predominately in middle aged females on the front part of the scalp).
  • Kidney Stones (and eventually kidney failure).
  • High Blood Pressure (sometimes mild, sometimes quite severe; up and down a lot).

Most people with hyperparathyroidism will have 5 – 6 of these symptoms. Some will have lots of them. A few people will say they don’t have any… but after an operation they will often say otherwise. 95% of people with hyperparathyroidism will have 4 or more of these symptoms. In general, the longer you have hyperparathyroidism, the more symptoms you will develop.
