Re: Light box - Vitamin D? Elainep

Thanks for the reply, Elaine. I'm excited about this too. In my research I discovered that low Vit D levels are linked to hypothyroidism, which I have. I also have fibromyalgia and thyroid has always been a suspect player in that. Those muscle cramps sure feel like hypocalceamia which makes sense since my calcium was tested low, but calcium supplements don't seem to help. My Mom had rickets as a child so there could be a genetic component as well.

Further urine metabolite testing indicated low adrenal sufficiency, so you're comment about adrenals hit home. Wouldn't it be too wonderful if Vitamin D could be at the root of all this? You mention your daughter and Quincy being sympomatic in the Summer. That has always been my worst time. It wouldn't seem like there'd be a vit D shortage in the Summer, but I thought the similarities were indicative of something or other.

I'll get myself 4,000Mg Vit D tomorrow and get myself tested. Will let you know how it goes. - Barbara
