pepphell, I was low on Vit D and my GP told me to start taking 1000IU.  I was already taking that much, so I did some research and found an article that suggested 5000IU/day for someone that didn't get much sunlight.  1 year later my level is 51, the article said you should shoot for a level of 50, so I am right on.  I also use B12 under the tongue not shots.  Do a search on low Vit D.  Take Care, KO

when you are on doxy, it specifically ask you to avoid direct sunlight. then they find low vit d in my body.
plus i live in northeast, sun doesn't come out here half the days.
 
i dont believe vit d deficiency in my body is an old one, its new off late, since lyme restricted most of my activities. i hate this disease. for no reason passing out is not fun, but its not cuz of lymes, but it is cuzof lyme cuz of lyme i am off a million things, and that leaves me with no energy.

pephell, being low in those 2 can really make you feel not so good.  See if supplementing doesn't help how you feel.  Give it time, it doesn't happen overnight.  KO
