Increased Bone Pain After Starting Vitamin D Supplementation
I had bone pain for over 2 years before my doctor finally agreed (upon my request) to carry out a vitamin d test. I had been taking vitamin d supplement of 1000 iu per day for a few weeks before the test, after a friend recommended it. However, my level was 25ng/ml so the doctor told me to take 3000iu per day and come back in 6 months - no further help or advice!!
I read that 3000 iu wasn't enough so I have been taking 5000 iu per day. Having read various sights yours really appears the most helpful but I am still in need of reassurance. I had much increased bone and muscle pain very quickly after taking the vit d supplement and I started taking it 8 weeks ago with no sign of the pain decreasing yet.
People have said depending on how long you have been deficient it can take up to 3-6 months for the pain to go away. Please let me know if you consider this to be true or if I need to get further medical advice. I am normally a very fit and active person so this is really frustrating.
Thank you for any help you can give.
