Hello, I have been having some strange symptoms for about a year. The main symptoms I get are dizziness and muscle twitching, and extreme acid reflux and swollen throat. The dizziness seems to have calmed down, but not the muscle twitching and the swollen throat. I am also developing a small tremor in my left arm and hand when it is extended. Another very strange symptom I suddenly developed is I cannot for the life of me drink alcohol. Even a sip makes me feel horrible. All of this might just be explained with something simple if it wasn't for the tests I had done.

My neurologist found 4 very small brain lesions on the left side. He said he had no idea what it could be and we would have to wait.

The other thing that is wrong with me and has been wrong with me for the past couple years is hypercalcemia.

I'm wondering if there is a link between the hypercalcemia and brain lesions. My doctor has no idea, and neither do I. Any ideas or input would be appreciated.

Small brain lesions are probably unrelated to the rest of you symptoms. You probably have to be seen by gastroenterologist and endocrinologist.
