I am a 42 year old female diagnosed with off the charts low, vitamin d as of Sept, 2012.
Mine was at 8. The doctor said she had never seen anyone that low.
My main symptoms were or or:
2. daily headache
3. brain fog
4. immense fatique
5. inability to sleep solid through the night
5. Burning/ RED face and eyes.
I am on 10,000 IU of doctor quality d3 for a while and being monitored. After one month I am at 40 instead of 8 for my levels of vitamin d.
I will retest again in a month and if all is going well... keep going or reduce down to a lower amount.
It is nice to find this group and to read your posts.
Would love to connect with others that had my symptoms and got better- I know i have to be patient but it is hard... I have been suffering for a year.
I am new to this group to. I have just found out my levels are 5.2 and like you I feel awful. I don't know what my treatment plan is yet as I haven't spoken to my Dr. I am so happy to have received this test result as I feel like I can finally start living my life!
