Oh No, I'm Severly Deficient in Vitamin D, and I Have Multiple Sclerosis

Vitamin D deficient and multiple sclerosis, not cool! How does this happen? I drink milk, or I did when I was younger. My dad doesn't drink milk now, or ever and he doesn't have ms. I know people who are allergic to milk and they don't have ms. Is milk even the culprit? Do all ms'ers lack vitamin D? Who'd of thunk it! What other things am I deficient in? Be nice! How long has this been with me? Can it be turned around?
So here's the deal, the range for good vitamin D is 32 - 100. I'm sure there is a measure, but I don't know what it is. My # is 17! Oh my God, 17, this is serious! All kidding aside, it is serious. My neuro told me it is the lowest he has ever seen, but I unfortunately forgot to ask how many he has seen. I am starting a 12 week program tomorrow to raise my level. I will take a pill, I like it so far, 1 time a week, for the 12 weeks. That one pill is 50,000 units. Wow, how many glasses of milk is that? I will have blood work, then probably start a new 12 week.
What to do, what to do? I really want to start the LDN, but if I do and I start feeling better, I won't know why. Do I care why? I'm pretty sure I don't care, as long as I feel better. What if I feel bad, how do I tell which one caused it? Oh man, this stinks! I have the opportunity to try something new, 2 something news, and I don't know what to do. I suppose I will start with the vitamin D, give it a few weeks and see how I feel. If I feel better, cool, I know it worked, but if my arm falls off, I know it was bad. This ms, it just keeps you guessing!
