Hi everyone I've been told I have low vitamin d but not to low my level is 46 I have been having constant sore muscles all over my body it's worse in hips back and neck and shoulders but can feel it all over.Would this level cause this sort of pain it seems to be getting bad has been going on for a year now I also have low iron but this is also not to low I've been told to take 5000 out of vitamin d for 8 weeks and iron for 3 months just wondered what other people's levels were of vitamin d and what symptoms did you have.
I too was diagnosed with low Vitamin D (13) and low folic acid... after 3 weeks of taking the vitamins I was just getting worse no energy or strength in constant pain from shoulders arms and I said back of legs but guess that could be described as hips... anyway I went to the emergency room when the pain could not be handled by Tylenol or alleve and the dr there told me there was more to my pains than just a vitamin deficiency... he gave me one steroid shot and I was out of pain for at least 10 hrs... I went back to my dr and he prescribed a low dose of prednisone 10mg in morning and 10 mg at night and then diagnosed me with polymyalsia within a week I was out of pain... strength returned and I can do everything I go back next week for a follow up... he told me I would be weaned off of the prednisone once I felt better again... I am hoping that pain does not return.
