I to am low, very low, in vitamin D. I was tested about
1-1/2 years ago and my endocrinologist put me on massive doses of it, prescript
ion strength and after all that time, I am still on the low side of normal. I take it once a week, one week I take 100,000 units, the next week, 150,000 units. I know, sounds like a humongous amount, but that is prescribed by an endocrinoligist. I have read the it is very common in people with FMS to be low in vitamin D. I've also read that many people overall are low in D. It can cause some serious problems, so it is best that we have that checked out, via a blood test.
My cardiologist recommends that I take 3 grams a day of fish oil, that is 3 pills containing 1,000 mg a day, which I have been doing. I have a family history of cardiac disease, so I am not sure if that is a standard dose for everyone or not.
As far as "the brain thing" there are days that I don't think my brain is working at all!! Then again, there are the good days when I can be both logical and creative...so I guess I'm not much help there. I've been researching fibromyalgia for 20 years and never heard of what your doctor told you...strange...
