Re: high vitamin D dosage and severe hip and leg pain

If you're asking if taking a high dose vit D (like the kind Rx by your doctor)can cause hip and/or leg pain, I don't think so.

Re: high vitamin D dosage and severe hip and leg pain

It's not specifically the Vitamin D that's hurting your hip - somehow, it's the vitamin pill itself.

I have the same problem when I take Calcium - or even multi-vitamines (capsules, tablets - any kind). After two or three days of taking them, my hip/hips hurt so badly I can barely walk.

I think a lot of people have this problem but doctors don't know anything about it. My doctor told me I had burstis and should stop working out. She was wrong. Three days after I stopped taking vitamine supplements, my hip was perfectly fine.

Imagine how many people are wrongly diagnosed because of this problem??? More people need to talk about this problem.

What kind of Vitamin D are you taking? Vitamin D2 is toxic. Vitamin D3 can be taken in large amounts - 2000 - 4000 IU. If you are taking the D2 kind, and in high doses, that certainly could cause problems.
