Sciatica, tendonitis or Vit d deficiency?????
Have been experiencing buttocks and thigh pain for several months which started after a long car drive.
Saw a chiro who thought it was sciatica. After several visits, no relief and sometimes it felt worse, so I stpped chiro Went to see the PA at my Dr's office and he thought sciatica as well and gave a muscle relaxant and suggest PT. Again no relief. Went back and saw my Dr for routine physical,complained about back and she thought that I was suffering from tendonitis!!
Just got back some labs results and found out I am severly deficient in vit D. Dr gave me 50,000 mg of D once a week for 4 weeks and then OTC after that. Took first dose today. Could my symptoms all be from a vitamin d deficiency? And if so how quickly would relief come?
Am tired of being in pain and exhausted from many nights of little or no sleep because of the thigh pain
