I was tested yesterday, and I have high blood calcium. The usual cause for that is parathyroid problems, but it can also come from taking to much vitamin D, and that may be my issue. Vit D was not tested -- I will try to get both tests, but that may take a while. I have been on an involuntary juice fast for two weeks, too nauseous for anything else, and am now quite sick. I think the lack of food is a factor,. And i think the high calcium may be the cause of the nausea. I have been taking 2g of calcium a day for about 6 months, because I get very painful leg cramps at night if I reduce the dose. (Also taking 1g of magnesium for balance, max bowel tolerance.) Stopped taking vit d in late summer, started again a month ago. My questions: - If I stop taking vit D but continue with calcium, will my blood calcium go down? I know vit D can persist in the body a long time. - Is there something else i can try for leg pain? Magnesium, zinc, copper, and iron all affect different types of leg pain for me, not this one. And I take them. - The pain the calcium helps with is what I think of as princess and the pea syndrome. The tiniest wrinkle in the sheet below my leg cause intense pain. It's bizarre. And it goes away with calcium. Does anyone else have this? Thanks so much for any insight you can offer, on any aspect of this.
