Symptoms of Parathyroid Disease
Loss of energy. Don't feel like doing much. Tired all the time. Chronic fatigue.
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.
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.
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.
High Blood Pressure (sometimes mild, sometimes quite severe; up and down a lot).
Recurrent Headaches (usually patients under the age of 40).
Heart Palpitations (arrhythmias). Typically atrial arrhythmias.

doubtful, but crossposted for my own reference. secondary hyperparathyroidism can be related to Vit D deficiency.

Whoa, this is scary familiar sounding; like 13 of the symptoms. Thanks for posting this.

no problem. I have 10 or 11 of them and just found a Vit D deficiency in my lab work that the doc didn't notice (and I wasn't supposed to be looking at, cause it was in my med record at work... fuck em)
I'm going to call the doc tomorrow about the Vit D values. And I might take myself to an endocrinologist if I don't feel better after boosting the D levels.
