Pain Getting Worse with Vitamin D Deficiency Treatment
My D levels are at 19. I am on the 50,000iu/wk for 12 weeks. I have been on it for 6 weeks and was feeling better until 2 weeks ago. The pain and stiffness has gotten worse but I have 6 weeks left before I see the doctor again. Is it possible that things can get worse before they get better?
I worry about a parathyroid issue because my symptoms fit it exactly but the doctor said those tests were fine. My blood calcium levels are fine but my urine calcium is high and the Vitamin D levels are low so she thinks it's a low D issue. I just wonder why I hurt more now than I did a couple weeks ago. I also was on the 6 week prescription of Vit. D twice in the last 10 months and it didn't raise my D levels. This time with a new doctor I am using all natural Vitamin D3 instead of the synthetic rx D3 hoping it may be absorbed better? Just wondering if I just stick it out and be patient the next 6 weeks and hope my body begins to heal and doesn't continue to get worse? Doctor said if this doesn't help I need to see a rheumatologist.
I already have and they said my only help in humera or enbrel. I am 41 and don't want to live on that the rest of my life and my gut just tells me its not an arthritis issue. I also have psoriasis so they said I have psoriatic arthritis(but there are no bony changes). My symptoms just don't totally fit arthritis, its more than just joint pain. The symptoms list from parathyroid.com fit me to a T.
