Just diagnosed with low vitamin d...help?
Just got results from the DR., my vit. D level is 13.1, I have been prescribed, 50,000 units once per week for 12 weeks. Havent started treatment yet because I'm a little confused about the high dosage. Here is my experience..
I have been feeling tired, no energy or desire to do anything. I have to force myself to do a simple task and afterwards I am exausted! My joints ache all the time, my knees hurt, my hips and lower back hurt so bad that it wakes me at night. I also have thinning hair..I have always had a "full head of hair", so much so that I used to have to have it thinned out! I am also hypothyroid and take 150mcg of synthroid daily. I should also mention that I had a complete hysterectomy in 2008. Can't stand the side effects of HRT so I stopped them. I know this is alot to take in but I was just wondering how others have benifited from taking the vitamin D treatment? Seems like a high dose and it scares me a little. I'm not too good with taking meds that have bad side effects, I usually stop them but I know that the Vitamin D deficiency is far worse than the side effects from the supplement. Just wanted to hear of others experiences and progress. I would greatly appreciate any and all!!
