    No you are not the only one to complain of those symptoms and you should have taken the doctor seriously.
    At levels of 10ng/ml and below your risk of Osteomalacia is going to increase drastically. You really need to take this very seriously. At levels below 40ng/ml your chances for internal cancers increases dramatically!!! (Also autoimmune disease.)
    The amount the doctor told you to take was wrong. We promote taking a minimum of 5000iu a day and maintaining a “healthy” blood level of 50ng/ml. (You may even need more than that for a while since you are so low!)
    There are Vitamin D receptors all over the human body and even in the brain. Muscles use a tremendous amount of Vitamin D.
