Last year my Internist directed me to take 4000 IU of Vit D due to a test deficiency. After 6 mo. of thaking the 4000 IU from an oil based capsule,(Carlson brand) another test showed a continued deficiency and told me to increase it to "at least 6000 IU." I bought a product: Life Extension (brand) Vit D3 7000 IU "special purpose formula" of cholecalciferol and have taken it xs 5 wks. Now having weakness,general malaise, bilateral upper arm muscle pain, increased joint pain hands, shoulders, knees, hips, fatigue of hip/buttock area, flu like sxs, brain fog, and metallic taste in mouth. Called the company and their counselor advised me to D/C use. Live in Pac NW with record cloudy/cold season this year. 67 yo female with hypothyroid and no gall bladder. Advice to normalize vit d level economically which was 27 5 wks ago???

When I take it I about 2 to 3 hours later, my abdomen swells and I start to have abdominal pain. I am very uncomfortable. In addition, I have constipation, bloating, flatulence, malaise, and headache. I have a long history of kidney stones and I cannot understand why I have to take such a high dose. I live in Colorado and get plenty of sunshine. As a nurse, I have seen "diseases" come and go as far as being in style. It use to be lactose intolerant, now it is gluten intolerant and Vit d deficiency. I have quit taking the Vit. D and within a day, I felt much better.
