Vitamin D Deficiency

I am having major problems with aching all over. I went to the rheumatologist and all the blood work that was abnormal at my GP was normal there. (I had a positive ANA, High Uric Acid, High CPR, etc...)
They did find I had a Vitamin D deficiency. Mine was 8. They have told me it can cause pain all over the body was just wondering what others though about this. I am currently taking 50,000 units twice a week.

Re: Vitamin D Deficiency

Mine was a 13 and I took the same dosage only once a week for three months and now 1 a month. It can cause many things to go wrong. Aching, tired, confusion and just an overall not feeling well. I did not see any signifigant change in my Fibro problems though. I do have a bit more more energy and that's about it. Hope you feel better soon.

Re: Vitamin D Deficiency

I am going through the same thing right now. I have been dealing with widespread pain for over two years. I was finally referred to a rheumatologist and had my initial consultation a month ago. All blood work and xrays came back fine except my vitamin d level. Which was a 12. I am taking 50,000 units once a week for twelve weeks. I went back to the rheumatologist today and she suggested that I may have fibromyalgia. She was hesitant to use the term though. She said that for now we would just call it myofascial pain. I have also been referred for a sleep study to rule out any issues there. Did anyone else go through this when originally being diagnose with fibro?

Re: Vitamin D Deficiency

I have had sleep studies before also. They told me I had it but not bad enough to constitute using a CPAP machine just yet. In reading all these posts it makes me a little concerned that my Vitamin D was an 8, that just sounds really low. Should I be more concerned that I am?

Re: Vitamin D Deficiency

I would question why your doctor did not suggest supliments for you. It is a low count and should be considered. Hope all goes well.
Low pain all,
