I've never been on a dosage that high, but I do know I tend to feel better quite quickly when I have started taking my supplements. Is your dose by pill or by injection?

I was on 50000IU/wk for a deficiency but wikipedia says 4000 IU is the highest daily dose

does vit D reduce inflammation and help circulation?
the fish oil and vit C I'm taking doesn't seem to help

You were not put on 50,000 IU a day. You were instructed to take this pill once a week. It is a protocol for patients who the physician determines will not be compliant with a daily low-dose. There is nothing unusual in this protocol. Make sure you take a calcium supplement the day you take the pill or drink three glasses of milk.
