vitamin d deficiency

Posted: 11/04/2014 at 06:24

I know this thread is old but was wondering how the people were getting on. I have had muscle problems and stuff going on for nearly a year and have now found out I am deficient in vitamin D and have been told to supplement by my GP.  It would be good to know if any one else has had vitamin D probs.

LR - Hope your latest session wast ok, I used to feel I never got my point across and sometimes I get to a 'brick wall' but that's what the therapist is there for and sometimes you're not always aware of what you're learning, if that makes sense.

Good Luck

I've had some phsycotherapy and struggled, as I was never sure what I wanted to get out of it. Have you discussed a specific goal with the therapist? and also dont be afraid to tell the therapist how you feel if it aint working. I know from experience it's easier said than done, but try and decide exactly what you want and work towards that. Good luck with it and hope you get something out of it.

coq10-do I need it?

Does anyone take coq10 supplements or know if they are needed with a healthy diet and exercise. Does anyone know if there are any un-biased studies that say they are any good?

Glad to hear you went running, hopefully you can acknowledge your success and build on it. I also have tinnitus which is generally a high pitched sound in my left ear, I am used to it now and funnily enough wasn't hearing it until I read your post!! but's that's the way it goes for me it's always there but I dont always notice it.

Hopefully get out myself tomorrow.

I am looking at doing a short triathlon which means getting my own bike and was looking to get some advice on what to avoid or look for or some websites to check. I've found out there's loads out there!! I'm not looking at a specific tri bike as it would probably get more use around the local country park and I would be looking at the cheaper end of the market. I'm guessing a mountain bike would be too heavy to but not sure if there's any other options.

I'd welcome any advice

Anxiety is a horrible thing to go through. In my experience I go through a process of evaluating whats behind the anxiety, sometimes it works. Have you tried stuff to deal with it? I've been going to a mindfulness group, which has been pretty good, it's medditation but there's no right or wrong way of doing it and it does not try to change things. It's a way of focusing thoughts on the present moment, it's a bit hard to explain at the moment I'm finding it ok.

Did you run last night?

I got to get some blood test results tomorrow to check my ferritin levels and if they're ok then find out what could be causing these muscle twitches I'm still getting. I'm able to got to the gym and do circuits, RPM, bodypump etc but I'm missing running. I think I might be getting a bit of a mental block getting back to what I used to do, as logic tells me if I can do an hours circuit I should be able to run for an hour! It's really frustrating!!. I'm envious every time I see someone running!!

Hope you get running again soon Rachel T2. Lincoln Runner, good luck tomorrow night, whats keeping you from running on your own?

Welcome aboard newmummy- Agree with Solb, I think there's nothing wrong with what you feel, it's how you react to it.I know it's easier said than done but try not to hold on to the feeling, just acknowledge it and let it go. I get jealous and also inspired by seing other people run, and also it fills me with sadness if, as is the case at the moment I'm struggling to run well, although that also spurs me on to get fit.

Good luck with the injury and I hope things get better for you, how are you treating you calf.

can only imagine how you must feel!

This might not help but whenever I've felt like the world's against me I try and notice anything that goes well or is positive and look to better times ahead and take any bit of support or comfort that is offered. At least your op site will have time to heal properly, can you still stretch and keep your muscles flexible or excercise your upper body at all?

Never surrender!

Good luck mate
