I have been having pain in my muscles and tendons, which makes me think it is the fibvromyalgia flaring up more than the lupus at this time.
After doing some research for several months, I decided to start taking vitamin D. I started with 1000 i.u. in the morning and another 1000 i.u at bedtime. Wow!!! what a huge difference it has made! There was an improvement in my pain levels almost immediately!!!
I was reading that they are now considering vitamin D to be a type of hormone. If this is the case, would taking it affect the other hormones produced by the endocrine system such as estrogen, progesterone, TSH or cortisol?
