Good Morning, I was wondering how many of you have had Vitamin D levels checked. I have been fatigued more than usual and when I went to primary care dr. she decided to check it. Well it was quite low at 13. Its supposed to be 30-80.
So she started me on 50,000 units of Vitamin D2 (ergocalcifer) 2 X week for 3-4 months. I thought this was quite high but started it immediately. After two months I started having pain in my upper right stomach area. Knowing this is where my liver is and it started throbbing. I am now only going to take 1 x week and see if it feels better. I have been reading that alot of people with RA has Vitamin D deficiency. Has anyone been on that high amount and any of you have liver hurt while on this amount.
Currently on Plaquenil, Sulfasalazine, Synthroid, Elavil, Tramadol 2 x a day, Mobic when needed.
