Fluid retention from Vitamin D
I've had pain in both feet when walking long distances for some years, which has now resulted in some stress fractures on my left foot and 4 months (so far) in a orthopedic boot.
While taking the Dr recommended dosage of 2000 IU daily for 3 months, my level has gone from a 27 down to 23. Only now am I taking the prescribed 50,000 IU once a week, taking the second one this morning.
Last week 2 days after taking the first dose of 50,000, the fluid retention started...mainly in my ankles and feet.
Nowhere do I find any info on that as a side effect, but not sure what else would be causing it?
