    Hello, I was wondering if anyone could shed some light about DVT's and Parkinsons,If they are or could be related some how. I have had three DVT's in less then two years One in each arm and now one in the leg. I have had blood work ups and a blood clot study done and all the doctors have told me is that I have an unsuually high Calcium level in my blood but everything else is WNL....I think that something is being overlooked here and something has to be causeing this to happen. My V-D is good,My cholesterol is good, I'm not over weight,I stay active,Im not Diabetic,Can the High calcium levels in the blood be causing this? Is there A condition thats causing that high level? Is there something that they should be looking for Outside of the tests that they already have done?
