Hi All who responded to my Vitamin d query, especially Cheshirecat, like you I don’t want to take meds with nasty side effects until I absolutely have to. Have had a blood test and although Vit D levels fall within normal parameters they are on the low side of normal, so back to the doc to see what he thinks. Still looking for a Neurologist to have a conversation with rather than one who talks at me. Had to take the dog to the vet this week and she has offered to help in the search! How bonkers is that! Still I will take all the help I can get from whatever the source. If anyone out there lives in France and knows of a Neurologist with a special interest in MS please let me know. Bordeaux or Toulouse is doable. Keep on trucking al MS sufferers you are great guys and your responses are much appreciated. Cillaw

Thank you again for the advice, without you as a resource life would be more difficult and lonely. This journey with MS is strange and finding the right path for me is at times confusing. So thank you. cillaw

Hi there,

For me the best summary of why people with MS should take vitamin D3 5000 iu daily is to be found on the OMS website. I keep my levels high enough on this dose in the dark winters and rather murky summers we have been having in the UK. I have had no side effects though it might be reasonable to start on 1000 iu daily and build up to the full dose over a month.
Hope it goes well.
