Is my Vitamin D too low?
I have been exhausted for over 6 years, now. Fatigue is pretty much my only symptom. It started when I was in the best shape of my life, working out, but also during December. In the past 6 years, I have spent THOUSANDS of $$ on doctors visits, supplements, tests... I could write a book on how many times I've been pricked!
My new doctor decided to run a full thyroid panel, 24 hour saliva test, and blood work, urine tests. Everything came back fine and great, except my Vitamin D 28.3 (32-100).
Could this be the cause of my fatigue? I can workout, but it's EXTREMELY difficult. If I push myself too hard, it usually leaves me wiped out the rest of the day. I can work just fine, but I also sit at a desk all day. I could sleep all day long. No matter how much I sleep, I never feel refreshed.
My doctor put me on 5,000iu of Vitamin D3 for the next 6 weeks, plus what is in my Multivitamin (800iu).
Is this enough to raise my Vitamin D? I can't think of anything else that would cause this, I literally have ruled everything else out.
