Vitamin D and a word I can't spell
I now have a Rheumatologist. I have trouble spelling that word. I shall refer to him from now on as Dr. Bones because he is basically treating me for my joint pain and Fibromyalgia. He ran a bunch of tests and found out that I am severely deficient in Vitamin D. Why hadn't anyone figured this out until now? He prescribed these pills I am supposed to take twice a week. I am not sure how this is going to work because if I am not absorbing Vitamin D through my food then I obviously may have trouble absorbing a pill. I don't know. Maybe it is mass quantities and some might get absorbed. I actually haven't researched it enough to know. I just take the pills...what's one more. So far I don't feel any better but I have only taken 2 pills. It probably takes a little longer than that. :) Guess we shall wait and see.
