Re: possible hyperparathyroid
Dear Ted, Thank you for taking the time to help address our health issues. Three years ago I came down with a severe flu like illness, and was never the same. The fever went away, but I could not sleep well anymore. I would go to sleep at about 9 but would get up in the early morning (3) and not be able to go back to sleep. I would wake up with a pounding heart and at times drenched in sweat. If I stayed in bed, I would sleep again at 6 and did not feel like getting up until about 8. If I skipped this nap, I would be groggy all day. Also, I experienced vertigo and a bone tiredness that made it dangerous for me to drive. I would struggle to drive. Three years later, since I am vegan, I am better but I still cannot sleep and have recurring neck and spinal pain, and wonder if it is liver/kidney related (since I get up at 3). I don't think it is ammonia build up, since I still cannot sleep even if I take ornithine. Sleep herbs leave me groggy all day and I am still finding it hard to function. If it is parathyroid problem, what could I do about it? I find it very hard to work and study.
Would really appreciate your input.
