had a similar pain few months back also
saw a Doctor here
he said it is because i have a Cervical Rib
and it might be causing this pain
Ok, when was the first time you had this?
i was also having pain in my left heel
Cervical Rib does not cause back pain
Cervical rib has different symptoms than what your main concern is today

he also did a Blood test
What is it?
Do you have the results?
in which they found that there was Vitamin D Deficiency
other things were OK
infact it was around 5-6
Vitamin D deficiency is found in most people
Do you sit and work for longer hours?
doctor said that it is also reason for the pain
he gave me an injection for Vitamin D
Vitamin D readin was 5.65 ng/mL
i am told that Vitamin D normal range is from 20-30
Vitamin D deficiency can cause some non specific symptoms as you complain
and this also is causing the pain
30 to 70 ng/ml is normal
You can take Vitamin D supplements
yes that is right
but is it curable or it will be recurring
It is curable
I will tell you ways
how to come out of the vit D deficiency
Brisk walk every morning from 7AM to 7.30AM
Best and cost effective way
Eat foods XXXXXXX in Vitamin D such as milk, cereal, curd, fish, cod liver oil, fruits and leafy vegetables
Calcium 500mg per day
what are the options for a veggie
Apart from the fish everything is veggie
does cervical rib creates further problems?
Ok Vitamin D tablets can be taken
Few people have cervical rib but they do not cause any problem
It is very uncommon to produce symptoms
If someone has symptoms there are treatments
I think you should focus more on physiotherapy and vit D deficinecy
If you have a sitting job, take breaks once every 15 minutes
get up for a two minutes and
You should do physical exercise daily to avoid frquent problems
but can Vitamin D deficiency be overcome and be restored to normal levels again?
Take NUTRILITE CAL MAG -D tablets, two tablets a day with meal
and back pain?
Use Relaxyl Spray for time being symptom therapy
can physiotherapy cure it?
VitD plus Calcium supplements, 1500 IU and 500mg respectively
Vit D XXXXXXX foods
Do you have any more queries
Thanks for consulting me.
Bye for now
