Osteoporosis and Vitamin D


[de...]

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone. 

 

I have Osteoporosis and doctor wants me to take Fosomax as well as Vitamin D. 

 

Seems when I take Vitamin D my face becomes flushed and anxiety increases.  Has anyone else had this response?

 

Also afraid to take Fosomax, but really want to save my bones.  Has anyone had bad response to Fosomax?

 

I have never had problems with Vitamin D before benzos,  and was able to tolerate Fosomax pre benzo's.  Now I'm afraid of all medications and wish it were not so. 

 

Thanks in advance.

Vit D makes my head fizz more, heat along spine, hallucinatory shit and muscles to completely lose tone and collapse so I choke as throat collapses but most things do that to me.

Thanks Ajusta.

 

When I looked it up saw that it (D) was related to hormones in some way.  My face became flushed, bones hurt, and felt a bit unsteady.  Not pleasant. 

 

I didn't research it thoroughly, but I'm sure it was the D that did it.  Not taking it again.

That's good, it was the Prozac making you a zombie. Thought it was.

 

Onwards and upwards.

Was actually looking at vital D, was using it last year and it helped but last year's withdrawal was a walk in the park compared to this hell I'm in now. I guess there's only one way to find out

Vitamin D may play a significant role in joint health, and that low levels may increase the risk of Rheumatologic conditions such as arthritis. Several studies have found low blood levels of vitamin D in patients with osteoarthritis of the hip and knee. In another study of more than 2,000 people, researchers found that vitamin D deficiency was strongly associated with disabling symptoms among those with rheumatoid arthritis. While it may be true that people with arthritis don't get as much sun exposure — exposure to the sun helps promote vitamin D production in the body — the study authors adjusted for that and still found that being vitamin D deficient was linked to arthritis pain.
