In june 07 i had some foot pain in my rt. foot, had an x-ray an found out it was a couple of possible stress fx's. Ok, no big deal, in oct i still had the pain so i went to an orthopedic he did an mri which showed i still had the fx's, put me in a specail boot and told me it takes time to heal, in dec i still had the pain in my rt foot and now in my left, so i went back to the ortho, had another mri on both feet which revealed multiple stress fx's in both feet all different areas and all different ages by this time i could hardly walk. The doc realized this wasn't normal especiallly for a 27 yr old and sent me to an endocrinologist. At the appt. i saw 2 different doc's. who said they had never seen anything like this, all these breaks. They did some blood work and turns out my vitamin d was a little low, it was 18, the normal starts at 20 so we don't really think that's the cause. They did'nt know what to tell me. Some of my other symptoms are constant weakness and fatigue, dry mouth, irritability, body aches, weight gain, these are just a few. I am still continuing to get breaks so I am now in a wheelchair which is not easy with 4 kids, I really need help so if anyone has ever heard of anything like this or even close to this please respond:confused:
