Hi Loretta...Thanks for the update on the A/C...Yea...go figure the weather changes as soon as you put it in! LOL...
Thankfully we are also getting a reprieve in temps and going down to mid 80's from being in the upper 90's so many weeks. We broke the record for the hottest July in history for our state!..
I'm glad that it is a pretty easy fix to get those Vitamin D levels up...My mom has had to do this a few times over the years..
There are some new studies through the Mayo clinic about
chronic pain (neuromuscular functioning) and low Vitamin D. The study showed that patients who had inadequate levels of Vit D actually took twice the amount of pain medicine than those with normal levels. As well as a correlation between body mass index and those with low levels. As Vit D is known to promote bone and muscle strength and overall sense of well being.
I think it's so important for those of us to get regularly checked for our levels of B, D, watching our Calcium intake...potassium, glucose levels to monitor for pre-diabetes...All the things that may fall by the wayside because of our focus on the larger issues of our main source of pain.
I hope that with the A/C...you can get a better night's sleep and that just maybe with the added D you can lower some pain even just a bit..How great would that be!!
Sending you hugs (( ))
