    Your Vitamin D levels are very low. It will probably take several months until you feel better. All of your symptoms can be related to this deficiency.
    I hope the doctor prescribed D3 and not D2 because D3 is better for humans. I would advise reading http://www.vitamindcouncil.org/about-vitamin-d/vitamin-d-and-other-vitamins-and-minerals/. It is very important!
    We here at the Vitamin D Council recommend a blood level of 50ng/ml (125nmol/l) be maintained in order to be healthy. So once you are done with the 60,000iu per week we recommend a minimum daily intake of 5000iu or whatever amount leads to a blood level of 50ng/ml.
