I'm having the same issues and seeing a rheumatoid doctor and he stated that it could be a tumor or cancer. I'm curious if you've had vision issues as well and headaches. I hope you found a solution to this issue. I've had a very sever illness that they couldn't figure out. Having to see over 35 doctors to finally get the answer that the cause was from the parathyroid. Before discovering this I had severe stomach problems that brought on this illness, I could work and get out of bed now I have NO energy and quality of life has deminished. Going on 3 years now but starting to get some answers finally. Hope your finally getting done answers.
