I've had serious symptoms of extreme exhaustion and joint pain and tingling in limbs long with massive hair loss, lost half at least! Have been hypothyroid for 15 years but treated with thyroxine, thought I was in menopause as 53 now but apparently not. I've been going to my doctor for ages regarding the exhaustion and have has full blood tests, and now finally diagnosed with vitamin D deficiency which at just 14 I belive is very low indeed. I'm hoping all my symptoms are a result of this but worry about cancer as I've read it can cause deficency? My doctor has upt me on 10,000 iu of liquid D3 just once a week for 3 months which having read several forums seems very low for the level I have, I bought high level D3 gel capsules of 5,000 iu few months back as suspected I needed a supplement it never took it, ow I'm wondering if I should take one a day along with the weekly treatment, I really want to get well ASAP as I feel disabled right now with so much body pain and zero energy, don't want to wait 3 months to see my doc and be told I need higher dosage, any advice would be great! Thanks
