(PRE-TREATMENT POST) Just had my annual physical exam today. VIT D deficient: 9 ng/mL (very low!). Been feeling little depressed lately, little bit more irritable, can't sleep well, and feel muscle and joint pains. My doctor didn't want to prescribe Vit D2/50,000 IU since I had a kidney stone problem in the past & I'm still under a care of a urologist. She prescribed Vit D3/2,0 ... Show Full Comment

I don't know if it's the Vit D or what, but since taking 1000 iu daily, my knee hurts and yesterday, my hip/leg started aching. Am currently looking for info on Vit D sensitivity and/or overdose...came to this site first and decided to post. I heard about Vit D on the Dr. Oz show. I get these pills at Costco, mfg by Nature Made.

April 4, I had bloodwork for the Vitamin D deficeny and sure enough it was low 14. Dr put me on 50,000IU a week for 8 weeks. I was taking it every Tuesday, had to switch to Sundays because of the horrendous side effects. 1 hr after taking it, I feel blah and weak then in the middle of the night I wake up with severe cramping w/urges to go to the bathroom and there's nothing. The next 24-36 ... Show Full Comment

I recently had blood work and the Dr called me and said my Vitamin D levels was low. He told be to take an OTC 2000iu each day until my next visit. By day three, I stopped using this supplement. Bloating, gas, abdominal pain, all affecting sleep patterns. I think I'll spend more time in the sun! BTW I felt great before my physical.
