Not Too Aggressive
by: Kerri Knox, RN- The Immune Queen!

Hi Chris,

5000 IU's per day is NOT being aggressive, it's being extremely conservative. Your doctor giving you 1000, then 2000, then 3000 is not conservative because he's trying to avoid toxicity, it's giving you an inadequate dose because he doesn't know any better.

So, while your feet and ankle pain COULD be from vitamin d deficiency, at this rate it's going to be another 5 years before you get your Vitamin D Level up to optimal in order for you to ever find out if it really IS from vitamin d deficiency!

So, until you get your level to between around 40 to 80 ng/ml, you'll never know if that is the reason.

In any case, your foot and ankle pain could also be from:

Magnesium Deficiency


Gluten Sensitivity

just to think of a couple of things off the top of my head. So, please take a look at the pages that I referred you to and see if anything might ring true for you. I think that you are expecting vitamin d to be a 'magic bullet' to solve this long standing problem and it rarely is...

Thanks for the quick response, Kerri.

I have looked at the pages you suggested. Just to let you know, a couple of days ago, I started with a magnesium supplement (powder form that in combination with water creates ionic magnesium citrate) to take along with the vitamin d supplement.

I need to talk to my doctor about the exact reading of my recent blood test to see what the level is and then discuss with him a more aggressive dosing approach.

If you have any other suggestions, please let me know. Again, I appreciate your time and consideration.


Ankle Pain
by: Surender Munjal

I had also developed severe pain in my ankles.After a lot of diagnostics (which I won't bother you to know) I was told that I have very low Vit D. After taking a high dose of Vit D, as recommended by the GP, I felt a strong relief. It is worth trying Vit D to see if this makes a change.
