VitD+Calcium=anxiety/depression from hypercal?

Posted by Mtom on December 2, 2016, at 14:11:12

I've recently read that taking Calcium Supplements and Vitamin D can cause hypercalcemia AND that symptoms of even mild hypercalcemia can include depression and anxiety. Any experience with this?

I take both on Dr. orders to treat osteoporosis. I'm wondering if my gradual increase in depression/anxiety symptoms coincides with increases in dose of both a few years ago (too bad I didn't keep track).

I was also on Osteoporosis Prescription Meds for several years quite a while back and I'm guessing/assuming I was tested for high blood calcium (Hyperparathyroidism) at the time because I think that's pretty standard before prescribing those medications. So how would I convince a doctor to test my blood calcium now as another one of many desperate (at least I'm sure to her) avenues I'm trying to pursue to make myself feel better.

This is the end of the thread.
