Vitamin D Levels

Rang my GP to ask for my results following my defiency testing in Vitamin B12, Folate, D etc etc... Apparantly everything came back normal but Vitamin D has 'review' next to it for the dr to review with me at my appointment on Monday.

My Vitamin D is '32' apparently. Is that deficient?

Basically I've had a range of symptoms for the last few years I've been trying to get answers for but everything is coming back normal!

HEAD PRESSURE - ALMOST COMPLETELY ON LEFT SIDE, IN FRONT OF EAR TO TEMPLE / HEAVY FEELING, OCCASIONALLY FEEL VEIN BULGING (2X CLEAR MRI's ON BRAIN, CLEAR MRI ON NECK).. THIS ALSO RADIATES DOWN THE LEFT SIDE OF MY JAW

VISUAL CHANGED - VISION OFTEN FEELS BLURRED, CANNOT FOCUS EYES, CAN'T FOLLOW MOVING OBJECTS IE WHEN CAMERA PANS ON TV SHOW (HAD FULL EYE TEST FEW DAYS AGO INCLUDING PHOTO TAKEN OF BEHIND EYES.. ALL CLEAR, APPARANTLY MY VISION IS PERFECT!

SEVERE FATIGUE / FEELING FAINT / ALWAYS WAKING UP TIRED / VIVID DREAMS

DIZZINESS / BALANCE DIFFICULTY / DIFFICULTY WALKING PROPERLY

BODY WEAKNESS, MAINLY IN LEGS

COGINITIVE ISSUES - BRAIN FOG, FEELING DETACHED / DEREALIZATION, DIFFICULTY WITH MEMORY, CONCENTRATION ISSUES / FOCUSING, DIFFICULTY WITH SPEECH / FINDING WORDS, FUZZY HEAD / BRAIN

TINNITUS (DISCHARGED FROM ENT'S TWICE, EAR TEST FINE, 2xCT SINUSES FINE)

NECK ACHE

HAND TREMORS / SHAKING,

MUSCLE SPASMS / TWITCHES - MOSTLY IN LEGS AND TOES WHEN RESTING, OCCASIONALLY HEAD / NECK

PINS & NEEDLES / NUMBERNESS, SOMETIMES FEET & HANDS, OFTEN TINGLING HEAD

NIGHT SWEATS

OCCASIONAL NAUSEA

ANXIETY & DEPRESSION AS A RESULT OF THE ABOVE NOT AS THE CAUSE

I've had 2 mri's on brain normal, 1 mri on neck normal, 2 ct scans on sinuses normal, hearing tests normal, blood tests for HIV, Syphillis, Lyme disease etc etc normal .. cortisol, cushings test normal.. proteins, liver functions etc normal, blood pressure, oxygen levels normal

B12, folate, iron, thyroid etc normal..

Vitamin D slightly insufficient I Believe.. 32

I'm at a loss. I've lost 3 of my young years, nobody can find what's wrong with me.

I was on Anxiety meds Citalopram then upped dose last year for quite a while, felt a bit better mentally but physical symptoms continued to deteriorate.

Basically I literally feel brain damaged and have no idea what's going on.

  • Hello

    You have had a lot of tests done there but pleased they have all been normal even though I know frustrating when you are still getting all the symptoms as sometimes just an answer why ? can help even if there is nothing they can do

    32 is on the lower side even though when I had mine done it was half that , I was very low and believe it or not low vitamin D can give you a lot of the symptoms you mentioned

    We can try and get vitamin D in our bodies by been outdoors as well as out diet but sometimes we need the supplement to

    I would have my appointment with my Doctor , see what they want you to do over the vitamin D and I would imagine they will want to get it a little higher and see over a period of time if this makes a difference to your symptoms , it can take a few months for are levels to get back up again so don't expect an instant result but I really hope it will make a difference for you and let us know if it does :-)

  • My God, its as if I wrote this. I'm 42, and have been suffering like you for far to long.

  • I have some of the same symptoms

  • The bigger question is what the hell can we do about it? I'm seeing another specialist the Monday after next. Mindfulness was a bust for me, I did a 10 week intensive program which seemed to exaggerate my symptoms.

  • suggest that you get a copy of all the results

    B12 serum test is not a good guide but most GPs not aware - range set is such that it will probably miss something like 25% of people who are deficient if it is used as the only measure for B12 deficiency

    if you aren't a member of the PAS forum already would suggest that you take a look and look at the pinned posts

    good place for support and advice on B12.

    Generally with vit D results under 50 are considered as deficient but test ranges for most things can vary from lab to lab depending on kit and method - and there may be different units in use for the measures.
