Hi and apologies if this is quite long!
I've been trying to get hold of my endo for weeks for a phone consultation but that's not getting anywhere so I was hoping someone could give me a bit of advice on what to do with my vitamin D.
I was started on vitamin D3 50,000 IU for 6 days in early February by my endo (vitamin D was 19.56) and then was told to take 800IU daily.
After about 3 weeks I felt incredible, I was waking at 7am feeling alert and refreshed(!) and all my water weight was melting away. My aches and pains went and I had a real zest for life which I've never encountered before (I've been hypo from birth and only on meds for the last 10 years). I had to reduce my regular 2.75 grains armour to 2.25 as I was starting to get a bit hyper.
The last couple of weeks I've really gone downhill, I can't wake until mid morning, low mood, swelling, really weak arms, shin splints, restless legs, lethargy, and a complete CBA attitude (sorry!)
I don't feel hypo/poorly as such, I did try to increase my armour to 2.5 grains and got a bit restless and palpy.
I had bloods done 2 weeks ago,
TSH 0.01 (0.3-6)
T4 13.8 (7.5-21)
T3 5.7 (3.1-6.8)
serum vitamin D 51 (51+ adequate)
albumin serum 46 (35-50)
serum calcium 2.2 (2.2-2.6)
serum inorganic phosphate 0.65 (0.8-1.5)
serum alkaline phosphatase 86 (30-150)
Could anyone please give me their thoughts as to what to do with my vitamin D? I feel like I really need to increase now, I'm not seeing my endo for another 2 months and I really don't feel like I can put up with feeling this rubbish for that long! This is a new endo for me and I don't want them to think I'm going behind their back but if I can't get hold of them I don't have much other option than to take things into my own hands!
Thankyou in advance
