I am a 63 year old female who have been experiencing excruiating leg cramps for over a year now and no doctoc seem to know where they are coming from. I have had just about every test you can name. When I first visited my endocrinologist I was tested and was told I had several bad parathyroids. I had a thyroid sonogram done in May 2009 and it read as follows. The right lobe of the thyroid measures 5.0 x 2.1 x 1.8 cm, the left lobe 4.8 x 1.9 x 1.9 cm and the isthmus 4 mm in thickness. There is a 6.2 mm cyst within the upper pole of the right lobe; a small complex cyst in the lower pole of the right lobe measuring 6.1 mm; within the left lobe, there is a 5 mm calicified nodule in the midpole, another small complex nodule in the midpole adjacent to the calicified nodule measuring 5.2 x 5.0 x 3.8 mm, and a third small hypoecohic nodule within the lower pole of the left lobe measuring 4.6 x 4.4 x 3.9 mm. I was prescribed a high potency of vitamin D, took more tests and finally was told everything was normal. My potassium is normal. I have been researching on the internet and came upon your site. I did read about someone having leg cramps and they were relieved after having surgery for parathyroids. I am hoping to find someone who have experienced what I'm going through and can give me some answers. Please help!
