Stop for a little: Vitamin d at high doses can cause some side effects, but hear tracing is not common. I would recommend that you stop the medication for a few weeks and see if the symptoms resolve. If they do, then you can start back on the vitamin d and see if they return. If they do not improve off the medication, then you should have a work up by your primary care doctor to evaluate the symptoms.
