I have PMR and am currently on 7 mg pred. My blood test of a couple of days ago says I have vitamin D level of 45. My calcium is 2.34. I have been taking a calcium, vit D, magnesium, zinc supplement twice a day for 6 months. On reading some of the posts here I think I should be taking a bigger supplement of Vit D. Could someone please advise me. I am being treated by my G P, have not seen a rheumatologist. My ESR is 6 and my CRP is 0.6, which seems very low, which I think is a good thing ? But my vit B12 is 176, which is a bit high.
I am having a bit of pain and get very fatigued quite quickly, could this be due to the low vit D count ? I have just checked my last blood test and my vit D was 55, so it is going down. I would be very grateful if someone could advise me on this.
