Vitamin D

3 posts in this topic

My doctor... family... has told me to start taking 5000mg of vitamin D once a week, then after a month to go to every other week, then down to once a month. She said it may help with my hand pain. Has anyone heard of such a thing? She told me my x-rays showed NO arthritis. This was relayed to me by her nurse. Lyn

Hi Lyn,


When I was tested last year for vitamin D I had almost none. I was put on 5000 iu a day. I was tested not long ago and it was within normal range. I still take the vitamin D daily. It has not helped with my pain but has helped with my mood. Being low on Vitamin D can cause joint pain and other problems. Did your doctor your levels first?


Hope it helps you.

No, but if low vitamin D can effect mood, I am all for taking it, as I have a mood disorder. Anything to stabilize that is good! I am doing it whatever, but thanks for the info.
