Since I don't get nearly as much sunlight as a cave man would have, I decided to try a regular supplement. Since I didn't want to have to take a pill every day, I got some 5000 IU pills - the largest I could find at my grocer - planning to take one a week or so.Anyway, I noticed a few weird effects in the couple days after taking the pill.I got a bunch of twinges that lasted a few minutes each in various parts of my body. I get these occasionally, but not so many so frequently. I don't mind them, but I kind of wonder what they indicate is going on.I also got temporary arthritis like symptoms in my end thumb joints, similar to what I get when I have a lot of nightshades. This one does bother me. I did not eat any nightshades.Anyone else ever noticed anything like this? Any thoughts on what's going on?For what it's worth, I've been getting 30-120 minutes of sun on face and hands, and sometimes forearms, every other day or so.
I felt very tired when I first started taking a D3 supplement and when I researched, I found that to process vitamin D you use up magnesium. So, if you are low in magnesium and you supplement vitamin D, you might end up even lower in magnesium. Might be worth looking into?
An alternative and less processed form of vitamin D is cod liver oil, but it's possible to overdose on it. I've been having a tablespoon per day of that instead of 1000 IU D3 for the last week or so. I can't tell much difference in terms of the effects on me; both have been holding off the weird bone aches this winter, but those may take months to surface.
