The Link Between Vitamin D and Neuropathic Pain

Recognize the signs of deficiency

If you have rheumatoid arthritis, failure to receive proper nutrition can worsen your symptoms and increase your risk of bone deformities / fractures and other problems. For this reason, it is important that you are able to recognize the signs and symptoms of vitamin D deficiency: body pain, muscle weakness or spasm, pain in the muscles or bones, fatigue, depression, weight gain, high blood pressure, stress fractures, and gut trouble. Talk with your doctor so that he or she can test your vitamin D levels and recommend a daily intake according to your health-related needs.
