    Too much sunshine or vitamin D supplementation gives me a frontal headache centered around the left eye which is intense enough to bother my vision and often lasts up to 36 hours. My vitamin D levels are low, around 29.

    I'd really like to feel free to spend time outside without covering every inch of my skin... so hoping for a solution. The vitamin D Council suggested magnesium but I'm already taking 2.4 g a day and it doesn't seem to help. Any ideas?

    I'm currently following Cutler chelation protocol, methylation support and taking 50 mg a day of iodine. my full supplement list is here http://howirecovered.com/the-supplements/ and my story is here http://howirecovered.com/my-story/

    I'm pretty confident that I'm on the path to recovery but when I get hit by one of these headaches, I'm just miserable...

    Hi How

    This is a bit belated. I've just become interested in this possibility.

    Relationship between vitamin D receptor gene polymorphisms and migraine without aura in an Iranian population.
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/23984350

    I quick scan of NCBI pubmed pulls up many trials searching for links between neurological issues and vitamin D receptor variations.
    I haven't had time to go through any of them yet, so i don't know if there's any consensus conslusions.
