I'm having a bit of a problem, and I am in need of some instant advice here...
For starters, I'm on a paleo diet/ray peat diet.
My diet consists of grass fed beef, potatoes, some fruit, veggies every once in a while, chicken, gelatin, OJ.
I have hashimoto's and I take 3mg of LDN (low dose naltrexone) and it seems to be working really well..
However I still get cold/numb extremities sometimes and ive looked into supplementing with calcium and magnesium to counteract it. But instead of supplementing with calcium I decided to take egg shell calcium and eat raw dairy. Since supplementing with magnesium and eating raw dairy, I've been having some complications..
First off, the milk doesnt give me any digestive distress, and I seem to tolerate it quite well. However two problems occur. One is that my scalp starts to itch a little bit, and when I go to urinate/pee and im about to finish my urine turns white, and it starts to burn LIKE CRAZY.. So it seems like im dumping excess calcium or something? Which is strange to me because I really didnt eat dairy up until this occurred. So why would my body be dumping calcium, if im pretty sure i'm lacking it? Not enough zinc/copper, not enough magnesium? IDK you people seem to know a lot, so lets put our heads together and try to figure this thing out for me.
This has gone on for two days straight, and ive only been supplementing for 3. The most magnesium I've taken is around 600mg in a single day, and calcium about a 1000, but today all I did was have 1 cup of raw milk, and the dumping of calcium/urination thing happened an hour after.. I just don't know whats going on, and why... If someone can give me some advice/insight i'd greatly appreciate it.
and no its not some STD or something crazy like that..
Also, the supplementing of cal/mag does seem to help w/ the cold extremities, so I know im doing something semi right, but perhaps Im just missing some important element..
anyways, I know this is a giant rambling question, but I could use some advice please!

What are your vitamin D levels like and how's your vitamin k2 and vitamin A intake?
Without either vitamin D or k2 calcium isn't appropriately used in the body and high levels of vitamin A antagonizes calcium's response to vitamin D.
