I’m worried I have high blood calcium. I have bone pain,

This answer was rated:

I’m worried I have high blood calcium. I have bone pain, frequent urination, headaches and dizziness and stomach pains. However I had a blood test about a month ago. Would I have this many symptoms this quickly if that didn’t detect anything. Or do blood calcium levels change very rapidly and cause symptoms very fast?

Ok so do you think lots of my symptoms are caused by anxiety likely? I took a codeine painkiller this morning aswell for the bone pain, do you think this is causing the dizziness?

yes it could be absolutely

anxiety makes more sense if you just had normal labs

how quickly would calcium levels rise, I’m just really worried about cancer?

it would take some time to rise

there would have to be something really wrong with you for that

but you can repeat the blood tests now to make sure
