As if I don't have enough to deal with, my Rheumy nurse rang to tell me that my latest bloods show I am very low on vitamin D. I have been taking a daily Fultium capsule 800iu but now I have to take four of these per day for the next three months, then be reassessed. I spent most of last summer hiding from the sun due to my skin rash/sensitivity and apparently you need sunshine to make this vitamin naturally. Nurse said my lack of this vitamin could explain my total exhaustion, tingling in hands and feet and my memory loss !!! Apparently it's quite common with autoimmune diseases. Oh, and my DEXA scan revealed my osteoporosis is still deteriorating - whatever next ? !! Lynda xx
