I recently had bloodwork at my OBGYN's office when I went for my yearly exam, and got my results back today. Everything was great...including cholesterol, blood sugar, organ functions, etc....accept - my Vitamin D levels!!! They were low! She said they should be at least 39-100 and mine were 21. She said that my doctor was calling me in a prescription for Vitamin D.
Well, I noticed about 6 weeks ago I had this back pain (and still have it). It felt like my spine hurt, or just a weird pain in my spinal area and sometimes it would feel like it just hurt in different areas. I also had frequency and urgency to pee, and went to the doctor a total of 6 times for UIT symptoms! All of my lab results showed no sign of a kidney infection or UTI. I have also seen a Urologist. He saw no sign of infection either, but I have still had the ongoing symptoms of a UTI (the pressure and urgency to pee). The symptoms come and go. Somedays I feel like I don't have the symptoms and maybe a day or so goes by and the symptoms return. The Urologist gave me Vesicare but they hasn't done much of anything.
Now I am wondering if the lack of Vitamin D is what is causing the back/spinal pain and I wonder how long I have been Vitamin D deficient?? I also wonder if I will always have to take a prescription for Vitamin D? For now, he says take 1 tablet once a week for 12 weeks and to come back in for bloodwork to check to see where my levels are.
I drink lots of milk so how could I be deficient? I wonder if this has contributed to the UTI-like symptoms that I have been having as well as the back pain? I am just wondering.
Has anyone dealt with this? (the UTI symptoms with no UTI and also Vitamin D deficiency)??
Your input would be helpful. Thanks.
