I am a 25 year old male from Leeds in the uk.
I was recently diagnosed with a vitamin D deficiency and I am on 40,000 IU per month for 3 months. I have been doing some research and have also started taking magnesium supplements. I have a sore thyroid (could be parathyroid as it feels further back than my thyroid) which my GP decided not to look at when I visited. Instead he took blood tests to measure my thyroid hormone levels which haven't been mentioned in my letter which means they found nothing abnormal with my thyroid hormone levels - this is when they found my vitamin d deficiency. Vitamin d deficiency would make sense as I am rarely in the Sun, don't eat mushrooms because i dont like the texture, and was a vegetarian therefore not eating fish (I have recently started eating oily fish and mushrooms). Since taking vitamin d supps (started on April 22nd), my thyroid feels like it is getting more sore. My thyroid and lymph nodes are particularly sore on the right side of my neck.
My symptoms include:
Fatigue especially in the evening or after a shower, sore thyroid, sore lymph nodes at neck, lower abdominal/stomach pain on right side, anxiety, slight depression, high heartrate, lack of concentration, weak muscles, weak bones, lack of motivation
Something to note is that in August 2015 I received a neck injury in a grappling tournament which has not fully healed after receiving treatment from a sports masseuse, osteopath, and physiotherapist. I have had a CT scan which found nothing wrong. My osteopath believes that I need an MRI - he thinks this all may have something to do with my neck injury.
I have also been going through some very stressful situations recently - baby due June 15th, just bought and moved house, fiancée's father died February 28th (starting noticing thyroid pain very quickly afterwards which got worse).
