Recently I have been having a bit of a struggle to walk, partly due to pain in my knees, ankles and feet, but also the feeling of no strength in my legs to walk.
I saw my consultant on Friday and he thinks that I might be low on vitamin D which he said not only affects the bones, but the muscles too. Most of us will be low on Vit D at this time of the year because of the lack of sunshine throughout the winter months, but he said that the strong drugs used to treat RA might well destroy vitamins in the body.
I know I'm not alone in lacking the strength to walk at times and I wondered if anyone else has been made aware of the problem low Vit D levels have on the body. June xx
