I am (was rather) a perfectly healthy 42 year old make up until February of this year. I was experiencing some minor back pain due to a recent fall and started taking a comprehensive liquid multivitamin ( Mary Ruth's Liquid Morning Vitamin). Over the next month my back pain/spasms and weakness confined to get worse, I started getting a burning sensation in my big toe, a white fatty deposit developed on one of my eyelids, and I constantly have "floaters" in my left eye. I've seen four different doctors from my health care provider network and none of them understand why I am feeling the way I feel. I didn't have any of these issues 6 months ago and now I feel like I'm 90 years old. Often times my lower back, hips, and glutes are so tight I have difficulty walking. My back and legs feel weak and my spine unsupported and vulnerable. I am unable to hop, skip, jog, or run. The MRI shows some flattening of my L5-S1 disc, but the doctor said it is not abnormal. I have lost 30 lbs over the past 6 months which is not normal for me. I haven't weighed this little since college. I eat healthy foods and am a "normal" weight according to BMI charts, but this isn't normal for me. The more active I am, the better I tend to feel, but often times I'm too weak or sore to be active and just want to lay around, which doesn't help. My Calcium, magnesium, vitamin B, Vitamin D levels are all normal.
My question for the audience is, is it at all possible that a liquid multivitamin could have triggered something in my body that is causing all these ailments? It seems a little too coincidental that this all started happening shortly after I started taking it (I have since stopped if that wasn't obvious). Also, are there any other blood tests I could have done to help determine what is going on? My primary care physician thinks I have general anxiety disorder and is implying this is the cause of all my ailments, but I don't prescribe to that theory. Although I can be a little OCD sometimes and could be a little depressed (I cry when watching America's got talent, haha), I don't have anxiety, panic attacks, etc. Thanks for listening.
