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.

Comment from: Sue, Female (Patient) Published: June 02

I had a thyroidectomy in 2010. My worst symptoms of hypoparathyroidism are facial twitching, chronic tendinitis and inflammation in my shoulders, Achilles heel, knees, and elbows. My eye sight has diminished. This condition has caused a major state of depression. This condition has destroyed my quality of life.
