I recently went to the doctor and was informed that I had high blood calcium. What does this mean? Can this be the cause of my dizziness for so long?

Many causes, no but: The most common cause of high serum calcium is hyperparathyroidism, a benign growth of the parathyroid glands. Mild elevations cause no symptoms but higher levels can cause fatigue ; depression. Dizziness is not a known symptom. See http://www. Nlm. Nih. Gov/medlineplus/ency/article/000365.Htm a good doctor should have explained this to you; if yours did not I advise you find a new one if possible.

Can taking Trileptal 600mg with calcium and food at night make you dizzy and your mouth numb?

Can taking Trileptal 600mg with calcium and food at night make you dizzy and your mouth numb?

Drug related effect: Taking trileptal (oxcarbazapine) with food / calcium are not the cause for you being dizzy. Dizziness is one of the common side effects reported with trileptal. Its occurrence is ~22-28% and it is the side effect most commonly associated with stopping therapy. This is dose related, thus reducing dose may alleviate symptoms. Muscle paralysis (numbness) has also been reported). Talk with your doctor.

GERD ; Lungs: Gerd can cause pulmonary symptoms such as triggering asthma or even causing pneumonitis. These can be worsened if one has a hiatal hernia or other anatomical problems. If you are experiencing these symptoms or frequent gerd, it is important that you see your doctor and adequately treat your gerd. For most, lifestyle modification can help alleviate gerd but many others need treatment.

Hyperparathyroidism? MS? No balance, migraines, bone pain, dizzy, lightheaded, high calcium levels, low D levels, chronic fatigue, memory loss, etc.

Hyperparathyroidism? MS? No balance, migraines, bone pain, dizzy, lightheaded, high calcium levels, low D levels, chronic fatigue, memory loss, etc.

High calcium: This is probably not MS. The symptoms are not that particular to MS. Calcium levels should be normal in MS. How high is your calcium level? That can lead to several of these symptoms. If this is too high, perhaps treatment and/or referral to an endocrinologist is indicated.

Excessive burping, light headedness and cold sweats after shower. Dizzy feeling when lying back. Can tumor in colon cause excessive burping?

Excessive burping, light headedness and cold sweats after shower. Dizzy feeling when lying back. Can tumor in colon cause excessive burping?

No: Hi Sorry to hear you have been struggling with these symptoms. This isn't related to a tumor in your colon - the colon is too far down the digestive tract to directly cause burping (burping comes from the stomach), but your symptoms are broad enough that you should probably have an in depth discussion with a doctor, either in person or through HealthTap. Hope this helps.
