Avatar n tn This scared the begesus out of me!!!! Mty surgeon had no clue why I went into hypocalcemia so quickly after my TT and why my calcium level wouldn't come up. My endo realized that because I had Graves Disease (along with thyca) that I was more prone to hypocalcemia. If I didn't have such a good endo who knows what could have happened to me??? As is, I had to stay in the hospital for 6 days before my calcium came up to an acceptable level.
Avatar f tn Addison's Disease, hypothyroidism, hypoparathyroidism, pancreatitis, food allergies, and possible vasculitis. My doctors assume all of these problems are autoimmune. However, I have tested negative for antibodies to EVERYTHING (thyroid, adrenals, celiac, myasthenia...etc etc etc). I do have an enlarged Thymus. Any ideas how this could happen (autoimmunity without any antibodies)? Of course I worry there's something else going on here, but my doctors seem so convinced...
Avatar f tn I'm a 29 year old female recently diagnosed with adrenal insufficiency, hypothyroidism, possible hypoparathyroidism, chronic pancreatitis and malabsorption, anemia (don't know if it's pernicious or iron-deficiency yet), and possible atrophic gastritis. Don't know about ovary function yet, either. Apparently this is an Autoimmune Polyglandular Syndrome. All of these diagnoses have been made in retrospect.
Avatar m tn What would cause a sudden drop in vitamin d? What might cause my eosinophil abnormality? Why am I so fatigued? I'm afraid of seeming like a hypochondriac, and I'm starting to worry that this is all in my head. I'm very tired of this...
Avatar n tn I've had several testing done, from CT, MRI's, Upper GI and Tilt table test. I've seen doctors from NC, VA and MD. No one seems to know why I have these episodes of stomach cramps and blackouts. These always occurs during mid-morning hours 3-5am. The pain is so severe it wakes me and I rush to the bath room and blackout. I usually stays out for about a 1 or 2 mins and it appears that I am having epillsey, but I was tested for that and the doctors ruled it out.
