my son has a auto immune disease, if we increase his vitamin d intake which helps the body's defense system, is it possible that it may make his condition worse. Essentially the auto immune disease is attacking the healthy body so i am afraid that i may be contributing to the autoimmune disease by building a stronger attack system by increasing his vitamin D. Please help my 2 year old son with his demyelinating brain disease, thanks!

My level was 9 ng/ml . Is it considered low? Three months back it started with bone pain in legs and hands. I had lot of dizziness and could not walk much. I started with supplements vit d3 60000 iu since 2 months every day. My brain fog and dizziness gone but still i get body pain. I had tingling in feet but it went away after taking magnesium. Am i getting pain due to overdose of vit d3? How long will it take for my pain to go? When should i recheck my vit d levels?
Yes, I would start taking the magnesium again. If that doesn’t help then I would try calcium.

I've began to supplement Vitamin d3&k2 combo. D3:3000IE / K2: 45ug. I felt great the first month, my sleep decreased like 2 hours in total by first day and i still felt energized, it further decreased 2 hours after a month and i felt tired, got insomnia for a while so i started use even more magnesium. 1600mg of magnesium citrate&lysin chelate= 486mg elemental, wasn't enough. So i used chloride magnesium and that saved my insomnia so i can fall asleep, that gives probably atleast 2000 elemental with my rub, an ounce gives 3262mg elemental magnesium!. I still have problems sleeping a whole night. I go to bed at 9 and waking up at 3 and are tired, thirsty and having a headache usually. I thought to myself that i got hypercalcemia due to my symptoms. I did use alot of calcium as supplement because i couldn't fall asleep without it either, so i guess my whole mineral supplies are unbalanced to say the least. I did however had no issues with supplements before i introduced vitamin d3 to my diet. Am i sensitive to the type of vitamin d3 in my supplement? Are there different vitamin d3 sources? Should i stick to a lower dose?
I do not know if you will come back to read this. If you figure this all out at some point, I would appreciate if you came back and told me what happened. For example if you use a lower amount of Vit…
