took 50,000 IU of D2 and have felt horrible for 3 days since!
I have been ill on and off for 3 mos with recurring illnesses like sinus, colds, and most recently (2 weeks ago) flu like symptoms and dyspepsia/IBS symptoms and pains in my left side and back. They have done all types of bloodwork, xrays, endoscopy, and the only thing strange they found was my Total 25 D was 15.3- very low.
So the doctor gave me an RX for the 50,000 iu of D2 once a week. I was relectant to take it as thought it was very high and I am very sensitive to medications and even OTC medicines. Both the DR and pharmacists told me that that is a normal dose and it would be fine.
Well... I took it on thursday night and right after began to feel tired and not right. When I woke up Friday I could not even get out of bed I had extreme exhaustion and weakness and my body ached even my fingers! I have felt like this for 3 days now although it seems a little better than Friday which was the worst day.
Have you ever heard of this? I am wondering if this is from the high dose I took as I was feeling ok before I took it. I am not sure if it is from the pill or I am just getting sick again! The only RX I take is Premarin 1.25 a day and 1 puff of Pulmicort inhaler a day.
After reasearching and reading online I think I want to switch to the D3 instead so I can take a lower dose daily- what are you thoughts on all this??
