He is 25 and last year began to have painful episodes with passing kidney stones
. One stone had to be treated with shockwave lithroscopy. Scans indicate multiple, bilateral stones. Since that time, he has had gastric pain, nausea, flank pain, sleeplessness, etc. I had a parathyroid adenoma a couple of years ago myself, so I was familiar with the problems of high calcium and requested some tests. They have come back and shown a calcium level of 10.; 10.2 and 10.6. However, his PTH was 10.
