My mum has fallen to sleep, she took 2 paracetamols and put on some muscle warming cream which seemed to relieve a bit of pain. It is 1am in London.
I know there is no way to be absolutely certain - but if it wa something more serious to go to the ER such as the spine/back problem you mentioned earlier - would the pain not be more severe or constant? Rather than just with movement?
I'm asking because I thought if it would be something such a disk/s problem the pain would more severe, that should couldn't go to sleep with.
I am just considering whether to wake her up to take her to hospital or not. I feel it is more than likely the vitamin D defciency - and would that be serious to go to hospital? or could she wait and go to the doctor till monday?
Also I don't think she ever picked up the prescription for the vitamin D tablets, but I have my own Vitamin D tablets.
It is advised on the container to take 1 tablet a day, the quantity of each tablet is: 25ug.
Should she take 1 of these tablets, or more??
and lastly should I wake her up to take it now, or can it wait till morning - how urgent is it?
