"At my last physical, the blood test showed low vit D levels." - bighairymike
A friend of ours was tested and found to have very low vit D levels. epona had some of the same symptoms, so she got tested. epona had extremely low levels of vit D too and was put on Rx strength pills (like 20,000 ius).
Once we found this we recommended that my mom get tested - same story.
And grandmother - same story.
And aunt - same story.
Every female member of my family was critically low of vit D and had to be put on supplements. Now I recommend to just about everyone that they should be taking vit D supplements. If you think you might have symptoms, go get tested.
