    Hii Timmy,

    No glasses and just writing this on my handset.

    You must go and sit outside in the sunshine for twenty minutes a day. It will make all the difference. Vitamin D is really important and is easily absorbed through the skin and someone told me eyes. I sit outside at my local cafe for a short time before work and it is sunny. Even walking to work. Just get outside at some point of the day.

    You will feel so much better.

    Yes, Timmy I did.  My bones and muscles were aching but I also have haemochromatosis, so hard to tell what was causing what.

    I was already doubling my calcium + d tablets but my level was still low.  Then my gp put me on Vit D3 Forte drops x 4 drops per day (get a good practitioners brand - about $33, but worth it because they work) and my level started increasing immediately.
