Dear Kitty,
Did they check your thyroid hormone levels? You don't give enough information for me even to make a guess, sorry! I would check thyroid, female hormone levels, calcium and phosphate levels, kidney function and take it from there. Medicine is sometimes like a big puzzle , sometimes you just have to start at a point and work it from there until you see the picture.
