Hello can somebody tell me if they know if vitamin D deficiency can be caused by radio active iodine treatment. I have had an overactive thyroid for 5 years,this was treated with RAI in July2015. About 2 months after treatment i started suffering with aching muscles and bone pain.this got worse over the coming months. I kept mentioning it to my GP and also my thyroid consultant who was at the time bringing my TSH down from 98 to the range it needed to be 2.5. Last month the pain in my spine was really bad and i had no strength in my back or legs. I basically hurt all over. He tested my vitamin D and it was 21. Since then i have been on 40,000 once a week for 8 weeks. I have taken 4 weeks worth so far and can feel a slight improvement. I have to go back as i think i will need a maintainence dose. I am just wondering if this has anything to do with the killing off of my thyroid gland. I just wish that somebody had listened to me when i said i was in constant pain. And tested sooner.
