This is me doing what I love best~ sitting by a pool with my Aunt. I am dark complected and she has always been fair. We both were diagnosed with severe Vitamin D deficiency. I have spent my life in the sun. I tan easy and spent most of my life not wearing sunscreen. I have always had an addiction to the sun. Yet~ I have been diagnosed with severe Vitamin D deficiency.
That doesn't sound so bad but I have been battling horrible muscle and joint pain and all over body ache for a couple of years. Just the last couple of months I hurt so bad it was difficult to walk. About a month ago I woke up and could hardly walk to the next room.
Did you know that most people need to take Vitamin D3 after the age of 50~ as per my Doctor's recommendation? Did you know wearing sunscreen blocks you from getting Vitamin D from the sun? Did you know that Vitamin D gets misdiagnosed for Fibromyalgia and many other Auto-Immune diseases such as Lupus and MS? Did you know that you may develop many horrible diseases if you stay in Vitamin D deficiency? This is all news to me and that is why I am sharing it with you.
Since being on a Clinical Strength Vitamin D3~ 10,000 IU's (the last three weeks) all the pain has gone away. I am feeling better than I have in a few years. * I am not a Doctor and this is just my experience not medical advice. Please check with your health care provider and have your levels checked.
