Yes! There are others.... me! I just got diagnosed last week. I tested at 18.
I'm taking 50,000 iu a week of Rx D2, and 1200 iu of D3 a day.
I think I saw one other 2016 post. But, we have each other for now...
I was just diagnosed two weeks ago. My level was 7. I'm taking 50,000 iu per week of d2. I've had two doses and started feeling worse. I feel like I can hardly walk! The pain is awful. I've read I should be taking D3 and magnesium instead of D2.... Does that help the pain go away any faster?
another thing, you need calcium. a low dose calcium daily (200-300 mg) can help a lot. I think the best solution is to take small doses daily of VitD and calcium togther (1000 UI VitD3, 200-300 mg calcium).
I was diagnosed in March... still feeling horrible also... even at 10 000 IU a day for the last 4 week. My level was 13 when I was tested. Started having panic attacks and vertigo last November, took until March to figure out I was low in vitamin d... it's been a real struggle the last few months, just hoping I will start to feel normal soon. I am having a really bad couple of days... just glad I'm not alone

Taking Vitamin D2 is harmful. Even if it raises your levels it won't keep them up.
Magnesium is needed in addition to daily Vitamin D3. It'll balance your Calcium. Taking Vitamin D will use more of your magnesium.
You also need to eat/drink foods with potassium to balance your magnesium.
Once your D levels are raised, you need a maintenance dose to keep them at a steady level. D should be tested twice a year.
