Sorry to hear about your hip pain
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi Michelle,

Sorry to hear about your hip pain, and yes you are right, it's likely the calcium going back into your bones after being deficient for a long time and swelling the periosteum of the bone that is causing pain.

And YES, you took vitamin d before your test, so it reflected what your CURRENT level was and not what it was before you started taking vitamin d. So, I would suspect that it was somewhat lower than your level. How much? Who knows!

Unfortunately, by going on and off the vitamin d, you are simply prolonging the pain and a better idea would be to take your entire week's dosage (yes, you can take a week's worth at a time) the second that you get home from work before your weekend and plan for some discomfort over the weekend.

How long this will take to go away I have no idea, but also part of the pain could very well be that you are depleting magnesium when you take vitamin d- see my page on Magnesium and Vitamin D- and that could be contributing to the pain. Taking magnesium throughout the week and taking Magnesium Bath Flakes over the weekend if you still are hurting can greatly alleviate some of the pain if it's also due to magnesium deficiency.

Keep it up, you likely have depleted calcium from your bones and you really really need the vitamin d and magnesium to replenish your bones.

Hope this helps...

Thank you for our expertise in answering my questions. Everything I was reading on your site was pointing to the calcium and vitamin D deficiency.

There are a couple of things I didn't tell you because I didn't want my story to be long and drawn out that particulary gave me evidence that I was deficient:

1. I lost my teeth at an early age, (50) due to bone loss. The teeth were perfectly fine, I just didn't have enough bone to hole them in.

2. Along with the exrays I found out I have osteopenia.

There is no one on earth I don't think, that has drank more milk than me. I am outside alot in the summer and get plenty of sun. I've had a "weight bearing" job the first 30 years of my life and have been active until the hip started causing me problems.

I tried so hard to keep the vitamin D going but as you would guess, Its extremely hard to take a pill that you know is causing more pain.

I will take your advice and start this on the Friday and see if I can't get through it. After reading your pages I did get some magnesium and I'll will add that to my therapy as well.

I sure hope dentists are being educated on this "deficiency" because it surely seems like they could of alerted/educated me with the bone loss showing up so early in my teeth.

My doctor did not tell me I was low in vitamin D. Just like you have said, the test came back with my level of 34 and beside it said that 30-100 was normal. I have read on your site, as well as other updated information, enough to know that anything below 50 is unacceptable.

Once again thank you for your time and expertise. I will post my therapy results as they happen.

My hip pain and extreme fatigue (among others) went away after recovering form Vit D deficiency
by: Karen Falcone


I know how you feel, horrible pain in the hip that gets worse and makes life miserably. I was there five years ago: hip pain and extreme fatigue.

I started oral Vit D supplements and the hip pain improved a lot in about a month. Stop taking the supplements and my Vit D went down making the hip pain to come back. I had to take Vit D for a few months making sure it stayed above 50 and then my hip pain left for ever.

Right now I am a cross fitter, the exercise have helped me strengthen my muscles (that also became extremely weak due to lack of Vit D).

Stop suffering.. get it up and enjoy life again.
