hi im new here so please hang in there with me.

Im a 22 year old male. Ive been to the hospital 3 times in the past month with no answers.

it started last month with what i thought was a kidney infection, ended up with antibiotics (cipro) and after 5 days the kidney pain had stopped. But during that time I was at the hospital twice. First time I was told i was just having muscle skeletal pains and sent home. The second time they gave me a EKG and chest x-rays. Again told everything was okay and sent home. After about a week or so im back in the hospital feeling like ****. Did blood test, and lower back x-rays and was told everything was normal. told to call my doctor and sent home. I went to my doctor and he took blood tests saying it could be low b-12 . called me a few days later and said I have low Vitamin D and should start 2000 IU a day. Been doing that for the past week or so and still feeling the same.

The symptoms im having go as follow; lower back pain, neck and shoulder pain, Headaches, vision issues, Random pains throughout body. also im fatigue like and tired often. I was also having but has now stopped, Chills, hot flashes, couldnt sleep, shakiness.

Sorry if this is long. im just worried and dont know whats going on!

  • Did they ever do an MRI? just curious. I am 33 and take 5000u's almost every day, and I swear by it. No offense, but you need to find a good doctor and make sure they check you for autoimmune disorders if possible. It sounds as if you may have a good amount of inflammation that a change in diet may help. Those are just a few suggestions. Hope you get to feeling better...

  • The vitamin D deficiency might not be causing your symptoms however you should still keep getting the vitamin D from the sun or tablets as you have a deficiency along with your other symptoms.Have you had full thyroid function tests done as thyroid disorders can cause similar symptoms to yours.Not to worry/alarm you but there are neurological based disorders too that can cause these symptoms,such as Multiple Sclerosis.Some other vitamin deficiencies can also cause these symptoms and also check your glucose levels while fasting and also after meals.
