I've been dealing with some health issues such as dizziness/lightheadedness, pressure in my head while standing, some gastrointestinal problems, I've been drinking unusual amounts of water that caused frequent restrooms breaks and frequent heachaches. All of this has been going on since early October. My question is could this because of too much Vitamin D3? I've been doing some reading and I'm concerned my doctor has me taking too much D3. I read that too much D3 will cause high calcium levels in your blood so I went back and looked at labs that I had drawn and now I'm thinking this may be the case.
My calcium level on 17 October was 10.7 mg/Dl (Normal range 8.4-10.4)
My Vitamin D level on 13 November was 25 ng/ml (Normal range 30-100)
After the Vit D lab was drawn my doctor told me to start taking 10,000 IU daily for 2 weeks, then 2,000 IU daily and recheck labs in 8 weeks.
I don't think I should have been put on the high of a dose considering I was only 5 points outside of the normal range. And since my calcium level was already high, I think being on a large dose of the D3 only made it go higher causing me these issues.
Any help and advise is appreciated. I'm desperate for some relief. I am seeing my PCM on Thursday and I'm going to ask him to re-check those 2 labs at that time.
