Thank you. Yes it is hyperparathyroid, her body produces too much calcium. it is affecting her joints, hands, and since the shot, pain in that arm. It prevents her from exercising which doesn't help with her weight. She wants to exercise but she cannot keep up. Her mood is bad due to not feeling well. The doctor had her set up to see an endocrinologist but that isn't for a couple of months. My wife is in her mid 50s and I am upset they did this without my knowledge. My wife's thinking is not 100% right now. She would like me to take over the decision making for her temporarily (I am not afraid to ask questions or go over the doctors head if needed). My thought is that the doc should have consulted with the specialist before any vaccination. (she got the flu shot the same day).
