Question Just diagnosed with Vit D level of 8....

Dr has me talking 50,000 units once a week (prescription) for twelve weeks and then retesting. He seemed concerned that this was EXTREMELY low and I know I have been feeling like crap for as long as I can remember. I am also B12 deficient and give myself a shot once a month for this.

I am exhausted and ready to sleep or lie down most of the time, can't get interested in anything, depressed, lethargic, dizzy painful joints, etc. Actually about a month ago I felt like my leg bones were bending when going up and down the stairs and changed the way I was walking to modify that feeling. Now I am wondering if it could have been true. At the time I blamed it on my weight, but could it be a combination of both?

How long does it take to feel better? I also have diabetes that they are trying to regulate, so everything just kind of piles on.

Anybody have experience with all of this and what have you felt on the Vitamin D?
