I have had so much bloodwork done recently, but apparently no doctor has thought of checking for vitamin D deficiency. I decided to get it checked out since there is more talk and research lately about this issue and the possible relationship to M.S. Sure enough, I am significantly vitamin D deficient despite the fact that I have been taking supplements for several months. (I live in the Seattle area...where is the sun?) Much of our vitamin D is made by our bodies from sun exposure. I think that vitamin D deficiency may be contributing to some of my "M.S." symptoms (also low calcium in the blood due to lack of vitamin D. Apparently such symptoms as muscle pain, cramps, twitching can be part of the picture. Also vitamin D deficiency can contribute to fatigue, anxiety, depression and irritability...soundslike many of us, although maybe I should speak for myself! I have also had irregular heart beat which can be related. I just thought I should throw this out there in case someone else is deficient and doesn't know it. Apparently it is much more common than previously thought. Has anyone else been tested and/or found that they were deficient? Research is showing that people may need much higher levels than previously thought. It can be very toxic at too high of levels though, so it should be monitored by a doc.
