    Sarth I am going to guess that they lost your original posting when they upgraded the website.
    I would have to guess that with this length 9 months of time and your level, that your symptoms may be from something else and/or permanent. Without the original posting, in front of me, did you have other symptoms and if so I assume they are all better?
    Another study just came out that shows taking a large amount on a “weekly” basis may not be the best thing. That smaller amounts each day are better. The researchers stated “These data imply that lower doses of vitamin D3 ingested frequently may be most appropriate and gradual withdrawal from supplementation as opposed to rapid withdrawal may be favorable.”
    So I would cut back to 5000iu and take it everyday. If any symptoms that did go away, come back, then come back and tell me.

    Hi
    Yes they lost my original post.
    It’s so frustrating for me that doctors are unable to reach a diagnosis.
    Dizziness,brain fog,tingling and unstable gait have reduced a lot.
    But my neck still remains stiff.
    I also wonder if it’s lyme,but i dont think in bangkok it’s there and I have never visited to forest or mountains.
    Furthermore, my symptoms have been always mild and never to an extent of any disability.
    But I am not feeling pain free and thats making me to ponder a lot.
    Please tell me your suggestions.

    What can be something else that could be causing these symptoms?

    Some of the following may be a repeat but without the original post, I do not remember what we talked about.
    You said the “Dizziness,brain fog,tingling and unstable gait have reduced a lot” but “my neck still remains stiff.” Since the other symptoms did not completely go away here is a thought. Maybe the Vitamin D is helping but only to a certain degree. Maybe if you switch to taking 8000 -10,000iu on a “daily basis” maybe it will make all the difference. The study I mentioned in my previous post above basically states if you take a weekly dose your 25OHD (Vitamin D) will have a “good reading” but the large dose causes inadequate “activated” Vitamin D which is 1,25(OH)2D3. It just may make all the difference in the world.
    Now your symptoms could be MS (multiple sclerosis) but larger amounts of Vitamin D would still be the answer. I could give you more information on that if you want.
    Besides the above I think before we talked about low B12, hypothyroidism and maybe even low calcium even though blood work may not show a deficiency.
    Let me know what you think.

    Here is a very good article at https://bebrainfit.com/stop-brain-fog-know-the-causes-symptoms-and-solutions/Brain Fog. (I realize this is only one of your symptoms. Scrolling down you get to “Cause #7 — Underlying Health Conditions”. There is a list of 27 conditions and thyroid, MS and Lyme are on the list. (Quite a few of the listed may even go back to a lack of Vitamin D.)
    So no I do not know what you have. IF some Vitamin D made the symptoms better, than maybe more will help and definitely taken “daily”. Then again it could be as simple as a Vitamin or mineral deficiency.
