Patient Comments: Hypoparathyroidism - Symptoms

Please describe your symptoms associated with hypoparathyroidism.

Comment from: marie, 55-64 Female (Patient) Published: December 05

I had a total thyroidectomy 1 year ago and still struggle with normal calcium levels. I am on 1 calcitriol, 3 calcium and 3 magnesium supplements daily. My worst problem is this terrible “strangulation" feeling around my neck which no doctor can explain to me.
