Hurting All Over Can Be a Symptom of Vitamin D Deficiency

I am 45 yrs.old woman and I have very low level of Vitamin D. I am extremely tired all of the time. I feel my world is falling down around me.

I am depressed and I am on antidepressants. I am on pain pills. My body feels like it has been beat up my arms and legs feel real heavy to move and my bones hurt.

Are these signs of vitamin d level being low??

Fatigue, hurting all over..

I'm so sorry about you feeling so terrible. So, your feeling so terrible could be caused from a LOT of things, so its always important that you get a full workup from your doctor.

More About Vitamin D

You should also have had a complete blood count, a serum ferritin level, a calcium level and a vitamin B12 level.

While that's GREAT that you got diagnosed with vitamin D deficiency, I hope that your doctors are treating it aggressively! You should be taking AT LEAST 50,000 IU's per week and maybe even 100,000 a week if you are REALLY low.

While hopefully the vitamin d will make you feel better this is a good time to start addressing your diet. Dietary stress is one of the biggest stresses that people experience and can very much contribute to Adrenal Gland Fatigue which can also make you feel exhausted.

Assuming that there is nothing seriously wrong with you, the top 2 things that you can do right now to start feeling better ASAP is to:

1) Get out in the sunshine- preferably in the early morning. If you get some exercise, all the better, but even curling up on a lounge chair in the sunlight outside EVERY MORNING can help to make you feel better

2) Change your diet. Get off of all caffeine, sugar, processed foods, gluten, dairy and artificial anything and packaged anything. I recommend the resource The Healthy Urban Kitchen
that can teach you the RIGHT things to eat to get your health back.

Insist that your doctor do a Vitamin B 12 level o

Let us know how you are feeling on the Vitamin D. It sounds like you can REALLY use some emotional support right now too. Is there anyone that you can talk to to help you through this hard time right now?
