I am sorry you are not getting any relief yet. You may not notice an improvement yet, it takes awhile to build it back up, (at least it did in my case) it took me about
3 months to start feeling better with the IV line in, but I can't say enough about
how wonderful I felt. I also have sever vitamin D deficiency ( along with many others). My level for march was 14. I take 50,000 2x week. When I had my central line in my chest, I got bags of food and vitamin supplements. It got as high as 34 and it made me feel wonderful. I could actually walk normally, no cramping in muscles, energy was up. I had 9 glorious months with the line in, but do to my immune suppression, had to take it out for fear of another massive infection. Bit by bit my levels dropped again and am back in the wheelchair and in so much pain. Even with the massive amount of supplements I now receive, my body just can't absorb enough on it's own. I have literally begged them to put the line back in my chest so I could get all my vitamins, but they can't. Vitamin D deficiency causes me so much pain and has lead to other illnesses developing. Hypoparathyroidism, osteopmalacia, osteoporosis, and a few others. It did hurt more at first when I started supplementation, doctors explained to me that when you are deficient, your bones fill with water and get soft and brittle, as it is being replenished, it forces the water out and replaces it with the proper cell structure which is more dense and causes pain and muscle weakness at first. I am so sorry you hurt, but if you can, try to hold on and keep taking it. If your body absorbs it, you should feel some, and possible a lot of relief. You will be in my thoughts.
