Re: Vitamin D and hip pain
I have severe D deficiency and was prescribed 50,000 units a few years ago. Within a week my leg bones started to ache badly so I stopped taking it. Fast forward to now...different Doctor tested my D and it was single digits, told me to start with 2000 iu a day. Within a short period of time my leg bones and hips started to ache again and it got steadily worse until it was debilitating. I'm not sure what to do, doctor doesn't know why its happening and I cant function everyday with that level of pain. I'm confused as to what to do since I know it is critical that I have the D. As soon as I stop taking it.. the pain goes away after a few days. Just wanted you to know that you are not the only one. I'm currently seeing different doctors to get an answer...I will post if anything comes to light....good luck to you.
