Foot cramps as a side effect of Vitamin d...
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi Linda,
Cholesterol Lie
Yes, foot cramps CAN be a side effect of taking Vitamin d. But go to the Side Effects of Vitamin D page to found out why it's really not a side effect of vitamin d, but a Sign of Magnesium Deficiency!

I also have a page about Muscle Cramps here.

So, follow the directions on the Magnesium Dosage page and that should alleviate that problem. But don't bother asking your cardiologist to get a magnesium level or to look at your previously drawn magnesium levels, Magnesium Levels are almost always wrong in people with milk symptoms like you.

Also, I URGE you to take a look at the book The Great Cholesterol Lie to see why your doctor is COMPLETELY missing the boat by prescribing you cholesterol lowering drugs!!

Cholesterol is NOT the problem- inflammation IS!! Yet, your doctor is OVERLOOKING your inflammation (that is causing the high cholesterol) in favor of using drugs to try to get rid of your SYMPTOM of inflammation!! It's completely backwards- and you STILL have the problem that is causing your high cholesterol in the first place.

Plus, now you are on dangerous drugs with all kinds of Side Effects such as Statin Muscle Pain and other problems. Not so good. Learn how to get rid of the PROBLEM of WHY you have high cholesterol in the first place!


I hope this helps Linda.

foot cramps, excessive D3 or potassium?
by: Anonymous

For several months I have taken 8000 units of D3 daily. For sevral years, 6 or 7 days a week, my breakfast was 1/2 cantalope and 1/2 cup more or less of nuts. I might average 1 banana daily and 1 small avocado weekly and my multi vitamin had 99 mg potassium. 10 days ago I ate 3/4 of a medium catalope plus a large avacado not the largest kind but maybe 3 times the average plus 99mg potassium.

That night, I had the worst foot cramps ever and some suggest potassium deficiency?? Your opinion please? I'm 78 and hiked 4 miles on my birthday. I hike 2 miles almost every day.

vit.d.
by: Anonymous

I had been taking calcium and vit.d3 for a while and was getting regular bad leg cramps. Then I read an article that connected the two things and pointed out that cramps occur in the muscles and that the heart is also a muscle, alarming.

Thinking back, the cramps were a recent thing, I stopped the vit.d and the cramps stopped.
Had had a heart attack 10 years ago so didn't want to take chances.

But still wanted vit.d for bones, nails etc., so tried again on occasional basis. Everything seemed fine for a few weeks then the cramps came back. Have to admit defeat on this.

Please read the thread. It discusses WHY people have foot cramps... the same reason they get heart palpitations.

Vitamin D PROTECTS the heart. Getting off of vitamin d because you are afraid of harming your heart muscle is exactly the opposite solution.

If you read the thread, it gives you the intermediary that you have not put together... the intermediary that is causing the cramps.

Oh, and you need vitamin k as well to both protect the heart and absorb vitamin d.
