Your Back Pain
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Health Queen

Hi Nutan,

I'm so sorry to hear about your back pain. It must be awful to be in so much pain. But there is good news, your vitamin D deficiency could very well be causing your back pain.

More About Vitamin D

You asked for a solution to your pain, but didn't your doctor tell you to get on vitamin D? If he did not, then call him right now and ask him to get you on vitamin D.

And make sure that he puts you on an aggressive dose that will correct your deficiency quickly. A dose of 300,000 IU's of vitamin D3 (NOT vitamin D2- the prescription kind of vitamin D) has been shown to be safe and effective to treat vitamin D deficiency.

But be sure that you are treated AGGRESSIVELY. Some doctors will treat vitamin D deficiency even MORE aggressively, sometimes with up to 600,000 IU's all at once. But some doctors who are not educated about vitamin D will give their patients 1000 IU's or 2000 IU's a day.

That dose is simply NOT enough and you will suffer with the effects of deficiency for a very long time. So speak to you doctor immediately and ask for very aggressive treatment for your vitamin D deficiency.

Back Pain and low levels of Vitamin D
by: Anonymous

Its stange that you mentioned that you've been experiencing this back pain since the birth of your child. I am experiencing the same thing after the birth of my child. I believe I noticed it perhaps six months after he was born but didn't know to connect the symptoms. I thought that I was just tired like most new mothers are, even having a bit of post partum problems. The fatigue seemed to lead to stiffness in the morning mostly or when I was just sedentary, to lower back pain that made me just want to do nothing. The back pain eventually sent me to the doctor, which yielded no results as the physician at the time told me that I needed to be sure to stretch. Stretching didn't help this pain that felt like a deep tissue pain. To say the lease it got no better until I decided to go to a different doctor. I had also developed a rash on my hand that I found no explanation for. Ive gotten a bit chatty so I will end by saying that the doctor I went to for the same reason checked my blood work. My vitamin D levels were too low and my b12 was too high (this I was told can cause skin rashes). I was prescribed a vitamin d supplement of 50,000 units that I take once a week and it has tremendously helped. I don't have the joint pain anymore, although my lower back still hurts when its due time for my vitamin d pill. Reading the response that the doctor left you I'm thinking that I should look into a higher dosage. The pain is always accompanied by fatigue.

Hopes this reaches you in good standing,
Good Luck!
