Hoping everyone is as well as can be this evening.
Some may remember me mentioning, a few weeks ago about 2 of my daughters having an extreme vitamin D deficiency.
My 13 year old has been complaining of fatigue, pain in hands and feet and over the past few weeks, shoulders and knees.
We spoke with the gp about it who was keen to wait and see what may happen once her vit D levels were up. Unfortunately, they haven't gone up and get pains increased, with noticeable inflammation.
I have ankylosing spondylitis as well as rheumatoid disease and the gp has now suggested that she fears my daughter may also have this. She has asked us to come back in to begin blood tests and has made referral to rheumatology team as the children's hospital.
Needless to say I am devastated. My condition has been extremely aggressive and proving difficult to control and the thought of my daughter possibly facing similar, has left me so distressed.
Sorry to go on. Im just sharing as do not want my daughter to pick up in my anxiety and worry and knew that I'd fine compassionate ears here .
