I’ve been wondering if my joint popping noises and extremely slight pains on my arms/legs and joints can be the beginning signs of bone loss or demineralization.
I need to schedule something with a doctor to get a diagnosis, but what can I do in the meantime while I wait?
I’m getting about 30-60 mins of sunlight whenever I can for Vitamin D.
I eat broccoli for Vitamin K.
I eat yogurt for Calcium.
I don’t take supplements, because they make me feel worse.
The last bloodtest taken a month ago showed slightly elevated blood calcium levels. My PCP thinks this is due to dehydration, but I don’t think that’s true. I did have diarrhea during the time I took the bloodtest, so I can see why the doctor made the misdiagnosis.
Am I missing anything? I don’t think the pains and noises have gotten worse in the past month, but maybe it’s progressing very slowly that I’m not noticing it. The pain comes the day after I do even a moderate amount of exercise, but goes away after a day or 2 of rest.
Also, for the past 6 weeks, I’ve noticed that my legs and arms fall asleep far more than normal, and this is probably due to poor blood circulation. I’m not sure what’s causing this, but does anyone have any advice?
