So I have been feeling awful for about 8 months now.
The symptoms causing me the most distress are tremors in my hands and legs but sometimes my whole body, they're usually subtle but get worse if i'm holding something or carrying shopping. I also get pins and needles and numbness every day and several times a day; for example i wake up most mornings to my hands being numb, or i'll be led down and my shoulder will get a heavy numb feeling, if i'm sat down sometimes my whole bum / lower back will go numb. also if im sat on the toilet i get pins and needles in my leg and it will start to go numb. Most of the time the numbness resolves itself when i love the affected joint.
i also get muscle twitches in my legs and arms and my hands do jerky movements sometimes.
The last thing is horrible pain. it feels like a deep bone pain or aching pain, in my legs and arms and back, sometimes i get this really severe burning pain in my back. I also get stiffness. The most accurate description to what i'm feeling is how nerve pain is described.
I've had all of this for 8 months and was convinced i had MS, however my doctor kept saying she didn't think it was. i had some blood tests and they found out my Vitamin D is extremely low (in the low 20's, the minimum it should be is 75).
The thing is when i google the vitamin D symptoms the only thing that matches is the pain, so im still really concerned about the tremors, muscle twitching and numbness. However, i came across a discussion on here and a few people with Vit D deficiency seemed to experience similar symptoms.
So my question is has anybody experienced these types of symptoms due to a Vit D deficiency and recovered?
