Sore muscles vitamin deficiency

Common Questions and Answers about Sore muscles vitamin deficiency


The results came back today and all looks good except what the doctor called a profound vitamin D deficiency. He claims this could be causing the numbness I am experiencing. He put me on a once a week vitamin D pill, like 50,000 units in measure I believe. Has anyone out there ever heard of a vitamin D deficiency causing numbness such as this? I see a lot of issues on the forum with aches and pains but don't think I saw any numbness complaints. Thanks much !
Also, until I read other people's symptoms, I hadn't realized that vitamin D deficiency was such an MS mimic. Even healthy people should probably track their vitamin levels just as they do their cholesterol levels.
Quest Diagnostics recently, leaving thousands and thousands of people across the country in danger of vitamin D deficiency. I came across another article that demonstrates just how critical it is to keep tabs on your levels of this essential nutrient -- and to make sure it's in a healthy range. Researchers from three prominent universities have uncovered a significant link between insufficient vitamin D levels and cognitive decline.
Can a Vitamin D deficiency cause this much pain? Went to the doc for muscle pain & weakness with increasing shooting pains to the point of affecting everyday functioning. Blood test came back low in Vitamin D. Result was 11, (should be 26 to 55). Other results OK. Cervical Spine & lower back MRI OK. Treatment is 50,000 units of D per week for 4 weeks and thereafter once a month. Been on it for 4 months. Feel at times like I was in accident.
I questioned her whether my other symptoms besides fatigue could be because of vitamin d deficiency, eg. nausea, headaches, swollen glands and she kind of danced around that question. She was more concerned about my vitamin D. She then started asking me if I was depressed (I don't think I am) and if maybe that was making me tired. I doubt this is the case as I don't feel sad or anything.
Hi Winutah, As I have mentioned earlier that your symptoms indeed suggest that it might be due to Vitamin B12 deficiency. This vitamin deficiency is due to intrinsic factor deficiency or may be due to pernicious anaemia. Keep me informed if you have any queries. Bye.
I believe this is a lesion on a cranial nerve more likely than a vitamin deficiency. The localization leads me to this. A metabolic problem like a deficiency would not respect nerve boundaries. It would be more diffuse. I'll look up the nerve in question, but I think it is the trigeminal nerve. Be back later with the sure answer. A cranial nerve is part of the central nervous system and would indicate a problem more like MS.
I also think that I may have become lactose intolerant over the past year, and I hear that lactose intolerance can cause vitamin D deficiency. However, most of my dietary vitamin D comes from non-dairy sources, and I still have a lot of dairy anyway but just take lactaid pills, so I don't know if being lactose intolerant could be contributing to my vitamin D deficiency.
All typical Lab tests all come out fine. Wondering if these symptoms could be caused by Vitamin B12 deficiency after nitrous oxide use. I do have celiac sprue and may have had a subclinical Vitamin B12 deficiency. MCV, Hgb, Hct all within normal range but never had a B12 test. Before ill and even after ill was taking a Vitamin B complex supplement that included folate and B12, never took mega doses of anything. Always very careful.
I also had a lot of unexplained symptoms about 3 or so years ago which included muscle pain, and was only diagnosed with a vitamin D deficiency, so I now take a vitamin D supplement daily (most of those symptoms have gone away . . . whether it was the vitamin D or I just got better, I don't know). I just thought I would mention that in case it could be related.
I also got some vitamin d supplements to help combat my vit d deficiency. Grace, I would like to know your opinion on my test results now? How common is this where people are lead to believe they have herpes from a blood test but then receive a negative result later? Also, what's the chance that all the igg tests are actually false negatives? Can I move on from this herpes fiasco finally?
Hypoparathyroidism too should be looked into apart from hypothyroidism and diabetes. Get a thyroid antibody test too. Vitamin B12 deficiency too should be looked into. Neck strain, spondylotic changes in cervical vertebrae, bone disease or bad posture should be looked into. Multiple sclerosis and G B Syndrome are two other possibilities. Nerve infections as in lyme’s disease too should be investigated. Please read more about it on: http://en.wikipedia.
I have had early in the mornings sore neck muscles, palpitation, tremor and sweating. I have no sweating during daytime. I don't know whether these are due to overmedication (Thyroid Erfa) or undermedication. I am hypercalcemic. The neck muscles are also weak and stiff when I have those other symptoms. Ihave also a slightly enlarged lymph nodule(?) in the neck. The parathyroids were not seen in MRI scannin for parathyroids. I have a lung tumour (not specified what it is).
I have muscles aches /pain /joint pain and some depression . I did start last mont mega vitamin D 50000IU but after 2 dose , i am feeling way hot , i thought i could turn back to Hyper again but that came back normal , so cut my mega dose from 50000IU/week to 40000IU /week. Keep in mind i was taking daily 1000IU for 6 months but no improvement in vit d level and symptoms. So i am sure Vitamin D or other Vitamins and mineral absorption is related to thyroid .
He provides some very good common sense approaches that could prove vital for your life, because vitamin D deficiency can and does kill. Vitamin D deficiency really did prove nearly fatal for me. By the way, getting vitamin D from the sun is the sure fire way to never over dose on vitamin D, because the body has its own shut off mechanism in regards to getting vitamin D from the sun.
I have noticed my joints and muscles get sore after exercise, and I now have a groin pull from vigorous leg exercises. I am a 64 yr. old woman, which I know is a contributing factor to joint stiffness. I use a sunscreen daily(allergy to sun) and am on HBP med, cholesterol, aspirin, and anxiety meds,plus a fluid pill. I take advil sometimes for relief. Thank you.
I have a lingual thyroid which is at the base of my tongue. Like you I do not understand the link between our sympotms. I had a Vitamin D deficiency but my B-12 is fine. I have not had MMA and Homecystine tests. I am BEYOND frustrated with these medical conditions. My numbness which leads to foot pain is getting worse each year. When I visit my new Endo I will ask about MMA and Homecystine. Good luck to you. I will keep you updated. (you are not alone!
I don't know if this is true of everyone who has Morton's toe, but they say those who have it have a P5P deficiency. P5P is a breakdown of vitamin B6. Maybe talk to your nutritionist about adding P5P (available in vitamin stores, etc.) along with your B-complex vitamin. I know it's supposed to affect magnesium and B12 in some way. This is not my expertise, just something I tripped across in my reading. Hang in there.
The craving for things like paint and dirt is usually from a deficiency in either Vitamin D or Calcium. Your doctor can have these tested so ask and find out where you are at.
I'm wondering if anyone has experienced any of these symptoms with a B12 deficiency or any other vitamin deficiency. ALSO I'm constipated... and a LUMP IN MY THROAT THAT WILL NOT GO AWAY! Any sugggestions would be much appreciated. Thank you all and be well!
I did wonder if it was a vitamin deficiency as I know they can present with symptoms in the mouth. Its good to hear that you think this sounds normal after tonsilitis and I will definitely try and take your advice! Im a student and have just graduated so maybe the drinking hasn't been helping and I'll try and limit that at the moment. I definitely don't eat enough fruit and veg either so will try this! Thanks v much I'll let you know how I get on with this!
All of these symptoms are from chronic vitamin d3 deficiency and magnesium deficiency. There is a group on this site for vitamin d recovery that has the most complete list of all of its symptoms. I myself am a recovering patient of vitamin d and had all of these symptoms. It took a while to heal and 9 months later I still have a few symptoms but life is much better. Go get tested!
If you have the symptoms and signs and meet the criteria for diagnosis of fibromyalgia, then this is likely not caused by the vitamin B12 deficiency. However, treatment of your vitamin b12 deficiency with appropriate doses of vitamin B12 may improve symptoms such as fatigue. Regardless, vitamin B12 deficiency should always be treated, as it may be affecting several parts of the nervous system. Thank you for using the forum, I hope you find this information useful, good luck.
It could be as simple as a vitamin deficiency, however a doctor can pin point the problem....
I am low on vitamin D.i got fatigue,swollen thighs and waist.sore muscles,bones...
Other possibilities may be hypothyroidism, hypoparathyroidism, peripheral vascular disease, peripheral nerve compression,vitamin B12 deficiency ,malnutrition causing low sodium,calcium and vit D deficiency, transient ischemic attack, motor neurone disease, or autoimmune disorders like multiple sclerosis or lupus erythematosus,fibromyalgia and chrinic fatigue syndrome I feel that without clinical examination and investigations,diagnosis is tough.
// This one is an excerpt from an article on VDD recovery times.. You will find that it can take some time to start feeling better, but for most people you will get to feeling better.
I've been to the Rheumatologist, nothing. A little low on Vitamin D. Doc recommended 800 units a day. Went to the Podiatrist. Had nerve damage in my foot, which was a series of shots until the nerve was deadened. All good, and had toe nails removed. (Big Toe) Ouch!! For about 3 months. Hard for someone that works on thier feet all day. (10 Hours, 4 days) I then went back to the Pod. My feet were again killing me. Nothing. Sent me to a Neurologist. Nothing. Sent me to my family Doc.
