Vitamin D and Joint Pain
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen

Hi Londa,

Thanks for writing about your experience. Yes, Low Vitamin D Levels can cause joint pain. Although, there could also be other reasons why you have joint pain, including not enough good fats like Omega 3 Fatty Acids and High Vitamin Butter Oil.

But hopefully your doctor is being aggressive about your Vitamin D levels and that you get your Vitamin D Level Checked again in 3 to 4 months after the start of your treatment to make sure that it is within normal range.

Londa, I also would encourage you to look at my partner's website at The Tendonitis Expert. He has excellent results helping people overcome their wrist and shoulder pain- and I have a feeling that some of his techniques may significantly help the upper body pain that you are experiencing.

Thanks for writing, Londa, and come back and let us know about how your pain is resolving.

Joint Pain Also
by: Anonymous

I have been experiencing joint pain in my hands (mainly the joints on both pointing fingers of my hands).

I had x-rays done and no visible signs of arthritis were observed.

I received a Cortisone injection in my left hand and I haven't had the pain in that hand. The right hand has been bothering me now.

I had the blood work done for the Lupus Screening test and that indicated I had low levels of vitamin D. I'm lactose intolerant so no milk, cheese ect.

Could the low vitamin D level be the cause.

I am now taking 50000iu a week for four weeks.

As in the other comment about joint pain and Vitamin D. Yes, your joint pain COULD be due to Vitamin D Deficiency and getting aggressive treatment will, at the very least, make sure that that is or is not the cause of your joint pain.

But YOUR pain seems to be very specifically in the two pointing fingers. This makes me think that you COULD have tendonitis- especially since there is no arthritis.

I would highly recommend that you go to my partner's excellent website The Tendonitis Expert and take a look at his information there. From what I know about Tendonitis, you MAY have trigger finger and he can help with that.

Also, make sure that you are getting 'good fats' in your diet particularly in the form of Omega 3 Fatty Acids like Fish Oil.

Hello Londa and Anonymous.
by: The Tendonitis Expert

Hi, this is Joshua Tucker The Tendonitis Expert. Kerri asked me to pop in.

I'll address both of your joint pain situations here.

Starting with....Milk is a crappy source of protein and Vitamin D anyway. Raw milk probably is OK, but store bought milk is not. So don't worry about not drinking milk. That's actually a good thing!

Londa, from a tendonitis perspective, when someone describes all over joint pain like you do, that's incredibly unlikely to be a tendonitis issue.

Which isn't to say you don't have any from some activity that you do, but as you describe it it jumps out to me as more systemic.

As Kerri says, jump on the Vitamin D, sunshine, good fats, and I'm a fan of 'more protein'. It's a safe bet that you don't eat enough.

Anonymous, say more about your finger joint pain. What activities do you do with your hands? How old are you? How long have you been hurting?

If it's just your pointer finger joints, I need more information. It could be a variety of things, including an early version of what Londa is experiencing.

I'll check back in, please both feel free to ask more questions.

Kerri and I love to talk:)
