LindaJoy Posted July 27, 2007 Report Share Posted July 27, 2007 Okay, all. Here we go. I saw a new internal medicine doctor a couple of weeks ago. She tested me and found my Vitamin D to be low. Hmmmm....I'm not surprised as it's been low for over a year now!!! Actually, it's not nearly as low as it has been--it's now 18, as I'm getting out into the sun more, which isn't too far from the norm of 25. Anyway...And, even though my Vitamin D is higher, my neuropathy is worse, yet the doctor just emailed me and said that she thinks the cause of my neuropathy is Vitamin D deficiency. (Dr. Shields, my neuro from Cleveland, said I have Neuropathic POTS. Is that caused by Vitamin D deficiency? Uh, I had POTS even with a normal Vitamin D. How many of you have heard of severe neuropathy, to the point of not being able to swallow very well, being caused by Vitamin D deficiency? Have any doctors researched this?She wants me on 800IU of Vitamin D a day. Uhhhhhh, I can't even eat regular foods anymore, let alone take vitamins. I told her this, yet she insists that I "have to take it." I'm really not liking her very much.Thanks.Lindajoy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
