Vitamin D deficiency- multiple aches and pains
exploring the quiet of the Dead Sea
I'm a 62 year young healthy, athletic (active all my life) male.
3 months ago I began very suddenly getting pains and aches in my neck, shoulders (joints), upper back (as if punched, behind the lungs), lower back (again, as if punched) and just general aching, hips aches and pains and upper back leg aching(more in the left leg).
I love and have always had a good nights sleep, except for these 3 months(aching when on my back,behind the lungs and in general). It's been difficult to get any sleep. I feel better during the day when i'm moving and active.
My doctor just informed me of a low Vitamin D level which i've never had...or never knew. I feel very debilitated even though i can still do some of the activities but i'm trying to go easy for now till a diagnosis is clear.
I'm going for a bone scan and hope this might show more. I'm wondering after all the reading i've done now, if this might just be the cause and if i can get control of it...and the best approach.
with my thanks,
