Chronic leg pain since 2 weeks
I am having leg and muscle pain since last two weeks. My blood test reports shows low vitamin d and b12 levels vitamin d is 6.91 and b12 is 117. I am currently on vitamin supplements and also completed 5 injection course of b12 but the pain still persists when i dont take doctors prescribed pain killers. How long does it will  take to restore these levels in my body also should i undergo any further tests for the same. Please advice.

Dear Madam you are very young. We have to find out why you are having leg pain. It is quite common in ladies during summer if less intake of fluids with electrolytes results in muscle cramps. If you are a person who does exercise every day then if you do not stretch your muscle after walking or jogging you can have leg pain. You may also get back pain from your back issues like disc problems. Coming to your vitamin deficiency - you may have to take b12 supplements for a period of 6- 12 months if you are a vegetarian them even longer. Vitamin d your values are very low. It may take good 6 months to bring up your levels. After that you may have to repeat the bloods to check for further dosage. Most importantly please see a ortho specialist in your locality for quick assessment for your leg pain. I hope this answers your questions.
