I've been suffering with joint and muscle pain for over 6 months. It started in my feet and back, now is worst in my wrists and feet. I'm also having issues with muscle weakness and fatigue. I went to get blood tests done and after finding low Vit D, my doctor sent me away and told me to take supplements and do some sunbathing. Not feeling happy about this percieved fob off, I went to see the Nurse practitioner who decided to also check my calcium and creatine kinase levels. My CK is raised 256 iu/l but my calcium is normal. All other tests done were normal, Hb, LFTs, Thyroid, Rheumatoid factor.
I've been asked to go back to see a GP so I'm going this afternoon. What I'm hoping someone can help me with is whether there are any other tests I shoukd asking for? The pain in my wrists is quite disabling, for example I dropped an empty coffee cup this morning as I got a sharp stabbing pain when I twisted my wrist slightly sideways. Also my feet are very stiff and painful especially after rest. My muscles feel really week and it seems to take nothing to get a strain, my back muscles in particular seem very succeptible to this. I also have no stamina in my muscles and get fatigues easily.
