While 22 is low end of normal, 34 is generally considered to be a good vit d level. Did your doctor suggest that you take a supplement? It is possible to take too much vit d in a supplement, and I suspect that is what you are doing. Look elsewhere for the cause of your leg weakness and discuss all supplements with your physician
