Vitamin D Deficiency

It was difficult for me to choose a topic.  I am interested in Vitamin D deficiency.  For the last 10 years my health has gotten progressively worse.  Constant night sweats, hot flashes (had hysterectomy 8 years ago, not the "change"), severe leg cramps, bones hurt, endless heartburn, chronic insomnia, severe headaches (several diagnoses) that have sent me to ER at least 2 times a year for the last 3 years, ear ache that never goes away, High blood pressure, high cholesterol, and symptoms that mimic a heart attack, paralysis of vocal cord (req'd surgery).  Doctors have poked, probed, took blood, run MRI, and everything with no answers.  Now my D levels are progressively decreasing even after I take over 3000 mg a day for months.

Frustration is at a high because I do not know where to go now.  Is there a specialist that could help, or a way to go.  I've hesitated to be so bold as to do my own research for fear of being accused as a constant complainer.  But I want to feel better!  51 is too young to fall apart.

There is another thread on Vitamin D deficiency that may be helpful.

I too have a D deficiency, along with a host of other unexplained issues (as you may see in my post on the above thread).  I have searched high and low for answers, or a specialist, and haven't found much info.  I can tell you all about vitamin D deficiency, but not one thing about what to do about it, or what causes it.  I have asked several doctors about this problem, but they just don't know enough about it to give any information.

Hello,

Vitamin D deficiency can result from inadequate intake coupled with inadequate sunlight exposure, disorders that limit its absorption like GI ,gall bladder,pancreatic and parathyroid diseases, conditions that impair conversion of vitamin D into active metabolites, such as liver or kidney disorders, or, rarely, by a number of hereditary disorders.
