I am the kind of person who pushes through and deals with all my discomfort with out complaining so I never noticed the problems I have been having emotionally and physically have to do with my vitamin D deficiency. I am really happy easy going person but suddenly I will feel fatigue, migraines, I have severe mood swings and anxiety (I really hate it!!! cause it is so against my nature!!!) even if I don't eat a lot I still gain weight this is especially frustrating since I go to the gym now for 2 weeks with little to know change in my weight. I started taking around 1600UI of Vitamin D I was prescribed 4000UI but nervous to take it. My teeth are brittle to and I have been having nerve problems in my mouth and I have also become very sleepy whenever I take just 1600ui... is that normal?
I left you a note as earlier I could not see the "Post a Comment" - as I had not logged on. I had similar symptoms. You will need to take around 5000 iu per day until your Vit D is to level 50 or 60. Then reduce it to 2500 iu per day. Check Vit. D every 3 months and never let it go lesser than 30 and not more than 100.
I took 7 months on 5000 iu per day to get fully cured and starting to enjoy my life back. I was miserable for 2 plus years. This site helped me survive.
Consult your doctor...and read Vitamin D books on Amazon.I am definite that you will get cured. Doctors do not read this stuff in med school as Vit D deficiency is comparatively a recent phenomenon due to indoor life. Also, drug companies do not do reasearch as there is no benefit to them as Vitamin D3 supplement is generic..
