In brief: Parathyroid adenoma

It's basically a growth on your parathyroid gland.
XS parathyroid hormones can cause constipation, abdominal pain, fatigue, musle weakness/twiches, renal insufficiency, excessive urination and dehydration, kidney stone production, osteoporosis, memory loss, depression...It needs to be evaluated and taken seriously. Treatment is surgery if you can locate the adenoma.
