When my doctor speaks, I listen!

After getting out of the hospital I was sooo tired. I mean don't want to do anything, can't keep my eyes open, forcing myself to do things even tho all i wanted to do was go to bed. At first I thought it was the stay a the hospital, it only got worse after I went up North and on the way home I almost fell asleep while driving! While working i was worked with eye closed.

I went to my doctor on Monday and told him everything they did to me in the hospital and told him my only complaint now is that i was extremely tired. He said he was going to test my iron levels and my Vitamin D levels...He says alot of people are coming in with low vitamin D levels. Meanwhile he gave me a B-12 shot...It did not do much for me. I would come home from work everyday passing out on the couch by 6:00 or 7:00 pm.

He got my results on Thursday and called me that night. He said "Your iron levels are just fine but your vitamin D levels are practically non existent" He said "levels are supposed to be around 30 and yours is like 11" So he told me to go and get a bottle of vitamin D and take them everyday!!!

I'm hoping to get some relief from this soon, I was talking to another lady and she said she was having pains in her bones and found out it was from low vitamin D. I have been having pains, it all could all be related to eachother and here i just thought i was getting old. I will let ya know if there is any changes with this.

So that's the reason why I have not been on much, I've been sleeping my butt

Yes, and I was diagnosed with the same vitamin deficiency, and I am just starting on D also, lets see if both of us see some results.

You know, I think I'm going to get my levels checked. I never thought of vitamin D. Glad your doctor figured it out and listen to him. Hope your feeling better soon.

Make sure you take vitamin D3, cholecalciferol, not D2.
