I take regular Epsom salt baths (magnesium), I have a magnesium body spray, and my multi has a small dose. I’ve taken 7000 of VD some days and 10000 some days. I just don’t know what to do. I’m being checked at the end of the month. Could nerve pain/itch be a sign of healing or a sign to lower dose?
Well I would pick an amount and stick with it till you are tested again at the end of the month. I would suggest the 7000iu. Then when you get tested you can go from there. It sounds like nerve pain and muscle twitching were there from the beginning and did not just develop. Is this the case?
I am not a doctor or scientist. So if the pain was not there before then maybe you should cut back to the 5000iu and try and hold there. The point would be if you get retested and your level has barely budged then you may have to take a lot more Vitamin D to raise your levels or your body is using it up faster than you can take it. If for example at the end of the month your level is 60ng/ml but you still have “symptoms” then you may want to consider increasing the amount you are taking.If you do not decide on a “steady amount”, then you will not be able to make any assumptions.
