Advice & Tips: My Neuro prescribed 2000IU/d after 25(OH)D showed my level to be 13 ng/ml on 02Mar. This week I decided to up the dosage to 4000IU/d after reading the PLM forum. When I treadmill walk gently (2 mph), paresthesia waves start after only 2.5 minutes. I'm hoping Vit D dosing will delay paresthesia onset.
