  1. @BoscoPiko Oh don't worry about it! I didn't take it as you being snippy. Maybe having CH has desensitized me to things that a normal person would be sensitive about. You were forward and blunt and that's refreshing. I really only started trying to help myself here in the last 5 years, and it downright pisses me off that I didn't help myself sooner/people didn't push me to help myself sooner/I just wasn't educated about the resources and community available to me. On to pain free days!
  2. I agree with this 100%. That's why I jumped. Still learning a lot though after 16 years dealing with this. Thanks for your replies :]
  3. What about the PTH levels? It's suggested that we get that checked too. "Again, it is very important to do loading schedules like this under a physician’s supervision with regular lab assays for serum 25(OH)D3, calcium and PTH at 30 days after start of loading." I honestly did no bloodwork prior to starting the regimen because I'm at the desperation stage. Maybe I'll regret it later? I don't know. I know where my vitamin D sits pretty regularly, just not the other two.
  4. HI everyone, I recently started the D3 regime and am doing the loading schedule where you take 50,000 IU of D3/day. But I can't find anywhere that says WHEN in the day you should take these supplements. Is it better to space the vitamin D throughout the day? With or without meals? Or take it all in one dump? I did read that it's good to space out the magnesium (one in morning and one in the evening) to prevent some GI issues. Also, for the bloodwork recommended, do people typically try to get a script for it through their PCP? Neurologist? I'm just worried about it not being covered by insurance and it seems like a lot of bloodwork over time. Thank you!
