Question
I have back pain since 2008, where my doctors are not able to detect any fracture or spine issue. I have done MRI scan, however result was positive, ie- no issue detected. I have attached the blood report, pls check the calcium and Vitamin D level and advise. I have already taken 4 Architol injections of VItamin D and have also taken 15 sachets of Calcitrol in 2010. Request you to review the case and advise

Hello XXXXXX,
Thank you for getting back to me.
I believe your 2008 MRI was normal and it is time to repeat a new MRI, as your symptoms are suggestive of disc problem i.e. back pain radiating to both legs.
Based on the new MRI finding we can chart out a best treatment for you.
Unfortunately, I do not find your Lab values attached in this query page. Could you please re-upload it or type it out. Alternatively, you may mail me the reports at YYYY@YYYY with subject as “Attention to Dr. Krishna Kumar”. I would be glad to help you.
Thank you
Dr XXXXXXX

Hello...

Thank you for getting back.

I had seen your reports and your Vit D is in insufficient range for which you need to continue vitamin D XXXXXXX 0000 IU (1gram) once a month for next 6 months and repeat the Vit D test after 6 months. Meanwhile please get MRI done.

Thank you.
