In brief: Unlikely
Agree with dr. Wingo.
Low vitamin d can raise your parathyroid level but it should not cause hyperparathyroid symptoms. Most hyperparathyroid symptoms are caused by the elevated calcium which is not expected to happen in this case.

In brief: Not exactly.
Classic hyperparathyroid symptoms would generally refer to things like muscle aches, heartburn, or depression cause by pth-driven high calcium levels.
While low vitamin d levels can cause a high PTH level, it would usually be associated with low calcium levels. This can cause other symptoms, however, including aching bones, and fatigue.

In brief: Can raise PTH levels
Your PTH will start riding once your vitamin d level drops below 25.
However as in most cases of vitamin d deficiency, there is no symptoms ! the heterogeneity of the vitamin d receptor among individuals and races makes symptoms of low vitamin d status vary tremendously. In my experience, I have encountered many cases where mood swings, fatigue and muscle pains (near joint insertions) is present.
