Hi! After the Thyroidectomy in November 09 I was having issues with my calcium levels so I have been taking 6000 mg of Tums everyday plus 50,000 IU's of Vitamin D once a week(they had to take out a crap load of Parathyroids also since the cancer had spread) My Doc thought at that time that my body would start producing calcium on its own again and well I never did. Anyway, long story short, if it gets late in the day and I havent taken any calcium I start having tingling in my face and lips and usually after I chow down on some Tum's it goes away, but for the past few months I have been having numbness and a heavy feeling, a little bit of tingling in my legs and arms, but last night it was off the chain. I got scared, my arms and legs were realllllly heavy and numb feeling and it lasted for hours. When I got up this morning my legs were back to normal but my arms and hands still felt weird. I took another nap and now I am fine, but this is really scary! I almost thought about going to the hospital, but I didnt.
