Peripheral Pain & What Kind Of Dr?

Peripheral Pain & What Kind Of Dr?

My days lately have been a mixed bag! My pain in the spine has been pretty well controlled, intermittently. But I'm having new pains in both shoulders & elbows, which I've never experienced before. Now I have spondylitis, I have read that can be common. Anyone else experience peripheral pain? Also, I really dont know who to see about my spondylitis. My PC? Osteoporosis? Or I see allot of people see a rheumatologist? What are your thoughts?

Has Anyone Else Had A Problem With Iron Anemia And Vitamin D Deficiency?

I have had vitamin D deficiency for years and regularly take supplements and was diagnosed with iron deficiency anemia in the hospital in March. While I was in the hospital I was given iron by IV. I have added more foods with high vitamin D and iron to my diet but I can't seem to make any headway with getting my numbers where my PCP wants them.
