Please, see a rheumatologist!
Hi and thank you so much for this query.
I am so sorry to hear about this muscle and joint pains
you have been having for the past several months. I understand your concerns and hope together we would be able to help identify the cause and propose solutions to you.
I understand the VitD levels are borderline normal(lower limit is 65 and you are 66). The other range of 75-80 is not "correct". This is still considered normal. if you are concerned about low levels, then probably getting the levels of calcium checked would help tell if for sure the level is inadequate to ensure calcium balance which is its main function. This would clear any doubts and you ca actually suggest this to your doctor.
Your symptoms to me could be suggestive of polymyalgical rheumatica or another rheumatological condition. The increased ESR
levels and the symptoms are in support of this. However, I will recommend you get evaluated by a rheumatologist if that has not been done before. I will also like you to take a look at this summarized information on polymyalgia and follow up with me.
I hope this addresses your query fully. Thank you so much for patronizing our services and please do feel free to ask for follow up clarifications and information if need be. I wish him the best of health.
Dr. Ditah, MD.
