    Re: Low Vitamin D levels

    I don't know why this is in the Anemia topic but I can answer some of that based on my own experiences.

    Although without vitamin D-3 supplements, my levels do not fall far below the low range, but I feel terrible when they do. I have heart palpitations, significant joint aches and pains but with no swelling or redness. I get very bad cramps/charlie horses in my feet and they wake me up at night. Additionally, the bottom of my feet become very red and they hurt all the time. I also have very painful muscle aches, especially in my thighs. I feel cloudy and anxious and just feel unwell.

    I take 2,000 i/u per day in the winter and reduce it to 1,000 during the summer.

    I have significant hot flashes when I take vitamin D but it is well worth it to me. A few hot flashes are an easy trade off to pain and suffering. I experimented with decreasing the D, spreading it out over the day, trying different brands/ingredients but I still have hot flashes. I will NEVER stop taking it.

    Re: Low Vitamin D levels

    I have both anemia and a severely low Vit D level so my symptoms overlap....

    muscle weakness
    cracks on the corner of my mouth
    shortness of breath comes easily
    restless legs

    If you look back at the health issues...there is a forum for Vitamins and Supplements. Under there you will find more threads about Vit D deficiencies and supplements.
