Pain vitamin D
I've been reading articles on this site and i have to say this kept me from losing my mind.
Long story as short as possible: young female, 28 y.o, fitness enthusiast and tennis fervent amateur, multiple joint pain knees and hip (very mild tendonitis). I've done it all (physio, kineto, antiinflamatories, rest etc), until some doctor said "let's check your vitamin D". The result was 15. Calcium was ok. The doctor prescribed vit D - 1000 IU per day. I thought it was a joke and took 3000 IU per day. After a few days, an acute and strong pain (not the chronic one) occured. Here, your article helped a lot, I just kept going with my meds. After another few days, I felt I was reborn. No pain at all. Nothing. After months of pain, nothing.
Since I was feeling better, I start training again - in the gym and on the tennis court. But, after a few weeks of training painlessly, that chronic pain is back in my knees.
And now here's the question: am I not taking enough? Vit D is not the problem? Should I take some other supplements? What's your opinion?
Many many thanks,
