In brief: Multiple

If we are dealing with hyperparathyroidism, then untreated it can lead to recurrent kidney stones, osteoperosis, bone fractures, joint pain, fatigue, abdominal pain, and concentration/mood issues too.

there are also cardiac issues, increase risk of breast and prostate cancers. Surgical treatment is simple outpatient procedure which can be done with a 3/4 inch incision

Possible kidney stones and osteoporosis.
Maybe depression. Several studies link hyperparathyroidism to hypertension and coronary heart disease. Find an experienced endocrine surgeon. It is usually a relatively painless outpatient procedure and may give lifetime benefits.
