I was just diagnosed with low Vitamin D. I originally went to the doctor because of severe leg, feet, and hand cramps. He did blood work, and it turns out my level is 5.9. I am now on 50,000 iu per week and 2000 iu per day. I just started this week, but I honestly feel worse instead of better. My muscle cramps are much worse. Of course, I know it's early in the treatment, but I too, would like to know how long before I start feeling better. I work full time, and I am so exhausted, I can hardly function.
I had the Same problem myself. Did so much reading and called Dr a few more times. I had 3 deficiencies already and found out I had a 4th. Magnesium!
Taking vitamin D will magnify any magnesium deficiency symptoms. Even if you are just slightly low in magnesium. So I take 250mg a day now of Mag & 6,000iu of D. Also 1500 of B12 & 325mg of Iron and a multivitamin with extra 'energy' vitamins. Horrible feeling this way! Stay strong!!
