About five months ago my doctor found I had low vitamin D after I told her my bones were hurting. I think it was about 18 on the blood test and it should be around 30? She put me on 50,000 IU of D per week for 3 months then I was retested and she just said it was close to normal and to take 2000 IU of over the counter D for 1 month and then down to 1000 IU after that. What I'm wondering about is do your bones ever stop hurting? Mine are actually worse now. Recently my hips have started hurting so bad I can hardly go up or down stairs. I'm only 53 but feel about 90. I can't seem to find anything on line to tell me if I'll get better. Has anyone gone through this?
