Resolved Question:

I have been unwell for 5 months now. I have seen most of the GP's at my practice who all say virus/post viral. I feel that something is being missed. I have had a chest x ray which was clear but will now have to wait up to 3 months for ear nose and throat. I don't really feel that I can wait this long as I am struggling to get through the day as it is and am now looking at reducing my time at work significantly. I have pain between my shoulders and pain in my throat and feel constantly nauseous. I also have a nasty taste in my mouth. I feel that I am constantly being shown the door at my practice and have nowhere else to turn. Can you help?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I personally think that you should have a vitamin D3 level done if you have not had one already.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Vitamin D deficiency is something that is very common and can cause such aches and pains commonly.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I would like that you should try taking vitamin D and calcium supplements which are over the counter.

Use these supplements for four weeks at least to see if they help.

Sorry, my laptop crashed

Is there anything else that could be causing these symptoms?


 

Expert:  Dr. SH replied 3 years ago.
The symptoms that you mention could be either due to a vitamin deficiency like I mentioned or you could be approaching menopause and all these symptoms could be explained by you going through a premenopause in which case a blood level of FSH along with estrogen and progesterone hormone levels are required to diagnose it.
Let me know if you have any further questions.
Rate me for my services when you are done asking.
