Last winter I felt terrible, my aches and pains had changed to a feeling of stiffness and every bone ached. I went to the docs and asked for a Vit D blood test. The test showed I was deficient in Vit D so I was put on a dose for 6 months. 4 months ago the 6 months were up and the doc took me off the tablets and told me to go back and ask for another blood test in January. I have felt really well and all my stiffness and aches and pains either disappeared or decreased amazingly. Hurrah the blood test came back NORMAL so as I thought the Vit D did its work. I must admit I have had two holidays in the sun as well which have obviously contributed to the Vit D in my blood. My husband who has been suffering badly with pain (he thinks it is arthritis but I suspect it is also a lack of Vit D) has just gone to the docs to ask for the blood test. Please remember do not take Vit D without a doctors knowledge it can affect kidneys and liver in a very bad way. So be safe and if you are suffering any of the above symptoms, go to the docs and ask for a blood test. Take care Maximonkey
