I now take progesterone caps at night (which helps me sleep) and cream during the day. My vitamin D and C levels were bottomed out and cortisol was screaming high. Just my experience only and something to maybe help you. Women to women website is a great help.
Vitamin D (25-Hydroxyvitamin D): 55 - 69 nmol/L converts to 22 - 27.6 ng/mL. One 2008 review has proposed the following four categories for hypovitaminosis D (vitamin D deficiency): Insufficient 50–100 nmol/L (20–40 ng/mL) Mild 25–50 nmol/L (10–20 ng/mL) Moderate 12.5–25.0 nmol/L (5–10 ng/mL) Severe < 12.
then I went to another doctor to get a second opinion and they took blood and said that I have a Vitamin D deficiency and I should took take calcium 1~2 times a day. Can a Vitamin D deficiency cause my muscles to twitch and pop and cause fatigue? I've never had a vitamin deficiency before.
My body temp returned to normal, I began to lose weight, but my bones suddenly began aching unbelievably and the all-over tingles came back. I think somehow the vitamin D levels rising caused my bones suddenly to realize they'd been "missing out" on the calcium, and went into overdrive trying to reclaim it...I shared this suspicion with my GP who now thinks I'm a kook...Puh. Anyhow, since then, it feels like my body is constantly trying to stabilize the calcium levels.
This test quantifies the sum of vitamin D3, 25-hydroxy, and vitamin D2, 25-hydroxy. The reference range given in this result was 30-80 ng/mL.
That's an interesting observation -- I wonder if there's a relationship between vitamin D and glucose tolerance?
I have a low vitamin D and a high vitamin D 1,25 hydroxy --- due to vitamin D dysregulation (I have CFS). I'm now on a research protocol (although the medications are not research meds) that is able to kill the bacteria in my tissues and due to cell wall deficiency. The name of the protocol is the Marshall Protocol if you would like to check it out via google.
The short answer is "yes". Consider checking out the Vitamin D Deficiency recovery GROUP. There should be some useful information there. Use the medhelp search engine and you should be able to find the group. Please consider signing up for the Vitamin D Council's newsletters, and periodically check out their website. You will find very useful information that shows that the RDA for vitamin D is insufficient and will not get you to the optimal levels between 50-100.
If a person having good intake of vitamin d rich food and enough exposure to sun then it will be a good source of vitamin D. I haven't said that go out in between 10am to 3pm. I said neither limited nor extreme exposure to sun is good. Secondly milk is not at all dangerous to any one. As it might be not a good source for vitamin D but it is indeed an essential product that every human should take.
I went to the doctor and they performed a blood test and my vitamin d came in really low at 13. She prescribed me vitamin d to eat once a week for twelve weeks (50,000 iu) I started on the vitamin last week and I felt very weak and nausea after taking it. I fine a couple days after and today I seem to feel worse. I still have heart palpitations and shake once in a while. I'm going to see a cardiologist soon to see what's wrong.
Hi- I also have a vitamin d deficiency (less than 7) and I take 50,000 IU of vitamin d twice a week. I also have a B12 deficiency and take shots twice a week. I too have muscle twitching and numbness and tingling in my hands and feet. I am going to see a Neurologist because my doctor told me that b12 deficiency can cause nerve problems. I am not sure if vitamin d can cause nerve problems as well as the b12.
I made appointments with both because I need this problem fixed. I found out yesterday that I have a very low Vitamin D and Calcium. I now take Vitamin D 50,000IU for 12 weeks, Selenium 100 mg and Fish Oil 1000 mg on top of a multi. Not sure what the Selenium and Fish Oil is for? As for my face, I have eliminated the Witch Hazel. It just seemed to dry my face more. I will see the Dermatologist in two weeks. Thanks for the info, I will update after my appointments.
I moisturize with Vitamin E oil and Cocoa Butter mixed, and I use Oil of Olay for sensative skin on my face... But lately I'm experiencing VERY dry and chalky skin even after I moisturize. I'm 5 mo preg. so I pay extra special attention to my middle area, and I have no itching of any sort there. My face, shoulders, chest and legs mainly. I tried a pineapple/sugar scrub to take away dry skin, and that worked for a few days but now its back to chalky even after I moisturize.
Vitamin D has saved our lives, literally! For years I had really bad skin, into my thirties. Nothing helped. One day I was standing in a queue in the pharmacy and heard someone ahead of me talking to the chemist about Vit D helping with skin problems. I wondered why nobody had ever told me before. I started taking supplements and lo and behold, within two weeks I could see a difference. After a month, I looked like a normal thirty-year-old.

He provides some very good common sense approaches that could prove vital for your life, because vitamin D deficiency can and does kill. Vitamin D deficiency really did prove nearly fatal for me. By the way, getting vitamin D from the sun is the sure fire way to never over dose on vitamin D, because the body has its own shut off mechanism in regards to getting vitamin D from the sun.

I have tried many different OTC ointments, including the ones I mentioned above, along with aloe vera and even a vitamin D lotion...nothing helps. I did have a one night stand with a women about 3 weeks ago, however I wore a condom. Even though I used protection I am still worried about this encounter because of things I have heard about this girl since, and the fact that the condom did almost slip entirely off at one point during sex. I fear that I may have contracted some form of STD.

I've had fatigue of unknown origin for years, mood swings (not depression but more easily frustrated kind of thing), inability to lose weight, hair loss, dry skin, digestive issues. I've also developed eye issues, excessive tearing and irritation. I have eye drops from the eye doc that help, but the issue flares up. My b12 was hovering around 200, which by western standards isn't deficient, but with symptoms my PCP decided to treat with injections.

do take 4...basicly double doze for a one month...vitamin D is known as the most important for skin functioning properly...and to keep your imune system doing well !and the last thing, you might have a fungi on your lips, you can catch it from different things- kissing, using cutlery in restaurants and drinking from their glasses...if you can not avoid it, use strow instead at least for drinks.
I've searched all over for eyelid disorders and nothing even mentions dry, cracking, peeling skin. There's gotta be a dermatologist out there who has seen this and knows what to do. Please help.
(By the way, I saw some vague references to vitamin D deficiencies and pregnancy on google, but I am definitely not pregnant.. although I am female. Don't know if this matters.
When the Ca went down, I had symptoms (including, fatigue, tetany, muscle weakness, muscle cramps, joint pain/stiffness and constant cracking noises, extremely dry hair and skin, changes in urination - sometimes cloudy and pink and urinating less). Are these symptoms of low calcium? These same effects happened before when I took only one 50,000 unit D2 pill (that my OBGYN prescribed) at the end of November 2007 (except the symptoms were so severe that I could hardly function for 4 days).
namely it feels smoother, more moist that before (usually I had very dry skin), and my immune system also seems to be operating more efficiently. Vitamin D deficiency however CAN (and probably WILL) make you more susceptible to various bacterial and viral infections as you grow older and can subsequently result in headaches, aches, etc. Actually, I would argue you already ARE susceptible more to viral and bacterial infections due to deficiency... but this can be easily remedied.
