To say that I’m frustrated is the understatement of the year. I really struggle with my vitamin D levels. When my vitamin D is low (when I don’t take supplements) my fibromyalgia is terrible. I suffer from all over muscular/ skeletal pain and all over feelings of malaise. Months ago I learned that vitamin D3 is made out of lanolin. I’m allergic to lanolin – hives, welts, etc. Since I’ve started taking the supplements the majority of the pain is gone however I have other ongoing problems that I can only imagine is from ingesting something that is poisonous to me – headaches, nausea, sore throat, itchy skin.
Fish oil and exposure to the sun is equally problematic to me because both make me very sick as well. Today I found a vegan Vitamin D3 online at amazon.com so I ordered them.
It’s made out of mushrooms which are disgusting but i don’t believe are something that I am allergic to so here’s hoping!
