My joints hurt and my knees make popping noise. Can i take vitamin d? If yes, when and how? I NEVER go in sun. So oral vit D is the only way.

In brief: Can & should!

Not only can you take Vit D but you should as it is essential for health & may reduce your pain.
Most adults need 5-8000 iu of Vit D3 each day to achieve optimal levels of 50-80 (unless getting enough sun). Ideally take it with Vit. K. See http://tinyurl.com/2chkcer & http://tinyurl.com/ly3wn3n

1000-2000 units per day is standard. Levels should be followed for higher doses since too much increases the risk of atrial fibrillation.
