What are the symptoms of hyperparathyroidism?
The symptoms of hyperparathyroidism are not easy to detect. Many people with high parathyroid hormone levels show no symptoms at all, or only mild ones, for a long time. If symptoms occur, they can include: kidney stones; bone, joint and muscle pain; increased risk of fractures; thirst; frequent urination (peeing); constipation; nausea; loss of appetite; confusion and difficulty with memory and concentration; weakness and fatigue, and; high blood pressure (hypertension).
