Side effects to Vitamin D
Hello! I am so glad to have found this site with so much information. Thank you for all your work.
In the last three years I have been tested twice for Vit D levels and both times I have been under 25. So I start supplementing and every time I feel extremely weak or tired. I try taking it before going to sleep but after a few days I begin to experience muscle spasms, neck or back aches. I have tried supplementing with Mg but seems to not make a difference. In the Vit D council site I found out that other people have felt this way and there seems to be no answer to this reaction to the Vit D. Do you know what I could do?
I would like to increase Vit D levels before trying progesterone therapy. I am 39, have had 3 children and I still breastfeed my 2yo. I feel tired and in a fog frequently and for a while I have felt fearful while driving as if I was daydreaming, specially when the road takes me to a wide open space. i.e. above bridges. Just yesterday I had my first anxiety attack. My hands got very cold and I felt palpitations while driving. I could force myself to focus on other things but it was very disturbing, specially because I had my children with me.
I used to have mild PMS symptoms but after improving our diet I began to feel more abdominal discomfort around the time of ovulation and less PMS. Another bothering thing has been GERD and constant and loud belching half an hour after every meal this has been present for the last 8-10 years.
I am not sure how to begin treatment.
