Weakness and vitamin D

I recently had my vitamin D checked after having dizziness and problems with balance, I also have weakness in my right arm and leg. How long do you think it will take for these problems to go away? I've seen a neurologist who believes I definitely don't have MS btw. My vitamin D was 6ng/ml!!

I had weakness from vitamin D deficiency. My level was 30 nmol/L which is 12ng/mL in your lab measurement. But weakness was the least of my problems. My immune system was toast! I had a cold, flu, severe strep throat for a month then another two week bout of strep followed by 3 weeks of bronchitis and coughing up blood. Vitamin D isn't called the antibiotic vitamin for nothing!  

I improved as vitamin D levels went up. Some people mention they take longer to feel better even with optimal levels (40 - 60 ng/ml or 100 - 150 nmol/L).
