Well, as my pain and various other symptoms in my arms, legs and back are getting progressively worse, my doctor decided to test just about everything with blood tests.
Got the results back today and I have very low Calcium and Vitamin D levels. I am now going to take tablets to rectify this and have another blood test done in 4 weeks. The doctor thinks it may take quite a while to get these levels back up again.
I really hope that this is what has been causing all my symptoms. It would be so much easier to deal with than if it is nerve pain from my neck or thoracic spine.
I am seeing a neurosurgeon about my neck MRI next week.
My GP today did say that she thought that at least some of my symptoms were being caused by my neck rather than my Calcium and Vitamin D problems.
Do other spineys have any stories to tell about low level Vitamin D and Calcium? Did taking a supplement help your symptoms?
