Second opinion: You do not say what the Ca level was. Your PTH is normal. If your doctor finds you untrustworthy then perhaps you have done something to precipitate their suspicion, in which case finding another doctor and being re-evaluated is the best option. Good luck.

I suspect...: High urine calcium is from primary Hyperparathyroidism. I don't know your calcium but your PTH should be lower than 40 if your calcium is high. I would consider an evaluation by an endocrinologist with Hyperparathyroidism experience.
