Doc called this morning to check in (looks like throwing my toys out of the pram made a big difference!).
Results came back and she said I'm severely Vit D deficient (result 22, didn't get the range but "severe" is good enough for me) and tested positive for "early" Lyme Disease.
The D3 I bought is actually a little stronger than the one she was going to prescribe so she was happy for me to take that instead. Didn't get into the whole K2 + Magnesium thing as I didn't want to confuse her 😁. Hopefully correcting that will ease off my aches and pains.
Lyme wise she said it might be a red herring with regards to my symptoms, as it looks to have started in the last few weeks. She's sending through a prescription for antibiotics to try and nip it in the bud and I need to book a second blood test to check for another Lyme antibody, to see if it's "converted"?.
Vit D wise she said to take the high strength for 12 weeks then move down to an over the counter but...
A little sun on my skin looks to have revealed Vitiligo (classic pattern around mouth and random spots elsewhere) which is just fabulous. Looks like I'll have to be slathered in factor 30 for the rest of forever, so had better stay on a high Vit D dose. Being ill is expensive.
On the plus side my tiny 25mcg levo dose has made a big difference in just 2 weeks. The swelling on my hands and face has come down, I'm sleeping much better and the pins and needles have gone! Still exhausted all the time but *points upwards* that isn't surprising. Perhaps hubs will accept my tiredness isn't "what everyone feels" now.
Edit: Awww, he just rang from work all worried about me.
