I take 2000 mg of vitamin D, and it causes no pain.  I feel much better when I take it.  I used to be deficient.

I would not stop the vitamin D.  Perhaps you need other vitamins and minerals in addition, but the vitamin D shouldn't cause problems.  

Try calcium tablets and glutamate powder at night for the hip discomfort.  Try magnesium in the morning at 500 IU.
