Few weeks ago, went to my PCP for a routine wellness visit where I was sent off for a CBC/the like. My original intention having gone to see her was due to the fact, for the past 2 years, I've been experiencing foot and leg pain (right side, to be specific) as well as muscle spasms in the foot/calve which keep me awake at night.
All came back normal except for a "SEVERE" Vitamin D deficiency. I was then prescribed Vitamin D 1.25mg softgels (once a week x12 weeks) as well as an OTC Calcium + D 1200mgs daily.
For the first two weeks, I was FINALLY able to sleep without having to jolt awake every 5 minutes to stand up and walk around to stop my foot from the spasms. However, we're now at week 5 and I'm in quite a bit of pain elsewhere...
It all began at week 3, when noticing a lymph node on the top/right side of my groin to be swollen, fixed and painful. Said pain radiated throughout my entire pelvic area (felt a lot like a muscle pull, sometimes an itching sensation). This prompted me to seek medical advice, and because my PCP had no appointments available, she advised I go to the nearest ER. When asking the ER doctor if the Vitamin D medication could be cause, he was quick to dismiss the question with questions of his own - "Are you sexually active? Any past history of STI/STDs?" ER ran blood work, performed a vaginal swab - everything came back normal/negative. I was examined from head-to-toe with no swollen lymph nodes elsewhere. The advice I got was to "stop poking". Needless to say, never got my answer about the medication.
I am now experiencing aching pains underneath both armpits which radiates down my arms and through my neck. No swelling/no apparent lymph node swelling in armpits/neck. Arms, legs and feet generally feel very stiff and crack loudly. Node in my groin remains same, associated with same pelvic pain which also cracks loudly.
The aforementioned have anything to do with my deficiency/prescribed medication? Say, if I'm gaining back mass of bone(?) lost, could any sort of re-growth be causing pain? Would the medication be filtering through my lymphatic system, thus, causing the node in my groin to swell/painful?
Otherwise, I'm a healthy, 22 year old female.
