    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.

    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.
