update on me and vit d3

It has now been just over 5 weeks since i started and i can honestly say that looking at everything, the vit d3 supplement has made a subtle difference. the pain has lessened overall , tho not gone away, my energy levels have gone up a tiny bit overall, but i will say it seems to go hand in hand with a positive attitude. so maybe thats not the d3 working at all, who knows, but overall i do feel a bit better, so i would recommend anyone else in limboland, if you haven’t had your vit d3 levels checked yet, do, cos if you are low, then you could get supplements and be a bit better! saying that, im still scared about holiday tommorow, but am going with the thought of " what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger and you have survived everything so far!". and im still scared about what to do come November when i get tested again, depending on how things are,i hate waiting and wondering :frowning:

sorry didnt mean to have 2 posts, can someone delete the extra i dont know how…

All you need to do is report your own post and we’ll get to it and delete it.

Wise advice :slight_smile:

Anyone who hasn’t had their vitamin D3 levels checked should ask their GP for a blood test.

Make sure and ask for the actual numbers when you get the results. MSers are normally advised to have D3 levels above 150nmol/l - this is MUCH higher than your GP will think is fine. The results show D2, D3 and an overall D level (= D2 + D3); it is only the D3 that’s important.

Have a great holiday Jules - I’m sure it will be fine.

Hi time to be brave - and enjoy. Following on from your last post…I made my trip to France last week and had a fab time, I am sure you will to. Just remember to fit in a couple of extra tea and cake stops…and yes the wine was cheaper than the coffee in France! Hurray! Lol Mish x

Hey Mish, Yep time to be brave! Hehe, that was good then, cheap wine! Glad you had a fab time, I’ll be sure to report back here when I get back!
