Does Vitamin D deficiency cause menstrual problems and sleeplessness?


Posted by Jackie

I was just diagnosed as having a Vitamin D deficiency.  Right now my period is a few weeks late (I'm not pregnant) and have had PMS symptoms along with other issues all this month, jitters, sleeplessness, anxiety, racing pounding heartbeat, suffocating feeling, so it was thought that it was either a thyroid issue (it runs rampant on my mom's side) or pre-menopause since I've still been menstruating.  Now I have to take 50,000IU's of Vitamin D for 8 weeks and repeat the bloodwork, meanwhile, I feel like I'm getting my period any day now (I know I've ovulated since I've had all the symptoms I usually experience during my cycle).  Thanks.
