    I don't know for how long I had been suffering from low vit D levels until I checked early this year. That time it was 19, but I had persistent symptoms for several years in the past.

    Since it was severe deficiency, the doctor prescribed 200,000 iui via bi-weekly injections for 3 months. After 3 months, I checked in June and the levels increased to 29.
    Then they changed the medication to 5000 iui pills daily in the morning.
    I was careless with the pills, and at times forgot to take them or take them at nights and suffered insomania.
    The symptoms are greater now, and I am down with inflamation in the body, especially joint and knees with fatique and extreme tiredness.
    Going to the gym itself a workout for me; and I must admit that I have skipped my workouts and diet a lot over the past 2 months.
    I am due to check my levels this month, and let them re assess the medication based on the results.

    What worked:
    Increase level of vit D showed massive improvement in my health within 3 months and the levels increased. Pills just don't work well with me.
    My DR advised to take them with breakfast, especially after ensuring I had some fat in the breakfast as Vit D is a fat soluble vitamin.

    Lack of sleep is another reason that causes inflammation in the body, and other symptoms.
    So, I am currently taking night calm a pill that soothes your brain and makes you fall asleep fast and uninterrupted sleep at night.
    I am afraid of taking this every day as I do not want to be addicted to this. But at the same time, this pill is so good that I can sleep well and wake up refreshed, so that I can go to gym, work out and then go to office in the morning.
    This helps to lose weight and reduce inflammation and other symptoms of low vit D.
