Low on vitamin D? Can it cause dizziness?

Posted , 4 users are following.

I have been having pain in my legs and I finally went to the doctor because it hurt too much to walk. Especially up stairs. We bought a house over a year ago and regretted buying a two story house because the stairs killed my legs. But now just walking hurts and I am curious if anyone else has this problem and if they think being low on vitamin D could cause dizziness?

    My doctor prescribed me a once a week Vitamin D2 1.25 MG

    (50,000 unit). I take that for three months and then get my blood work done again.

    Yes, had a similar incident happen to my sister, she was also give large doses of vitamin D. She also couldn't walk up any steps and very dizzy all the time. Have you been diagnosed with low vitamin D, and if you have are you taking it now?

    Vitamin D3 is better absorbed better than vitamin D2

      Liquid form is absorbded better than tablets as well.  Pure makes a liquid form that works great!  Mine was low and went from 28 ng/mL to 52 ng/mL in 6 months taking the liquid Pure each day.  28 ng/mL is on the low side of normal but, felt it could still be adding to my dizziness.

      I had my levels checked 6 months after starting the liquid vitamin D.  I'm sure that  months will show some movement but, I was advised that it would take 6 months for a notable difference.  I can function day to day but, sinus issues impact it, dizziness, entirely being gone.  I still have some level of sensations aand certain environments can bother me at times.

      Wow I didn't know it took six months. I have only been on my vitamin D for four weeks. My dizziness is doing better. I am not what sure what is helping my dizziness but I am so thankful it is almost all gone. I hope you feel better too!

    If you're taking the vitamin D3, that should be helping you.

      I was taking vitamin D2 and I asked my doctor to switch it to D3. I actually am feeling better. I also go in the sun for 20 minutes every day between 11:00 and 3:00. I read that is the best time for your body to make vitamin D. The sun makes my legs tingle and I think that is a good sign smile
