If you page back a couple of pages on 17 July "ess" posted a really interesting piece about vitamin D levels which will be of interest to you. I had not heard about this before and shall be following it up at my next neuro visit.

Best wishes

in my own experience, my rhuem told me about 3 years ago I was vit D deficient also.

I don't take that high of a dosage, but i do take vitamin D and my neuro symptoms started after that.

When I was first diagnosed in March 2010, my tests showed I had low Vit D.  My doctor has me taking 50,000 units once a week since then, and in a few weeks then I will slow down to 50,000 once per month.

I've read that Vit D deficiency is common in MS patients.
