I've recently had blood test results that show <20 nmol vitamin D, very low. B12, folate, liver function etc... all returned normal.
I am young, active and have a reasonable diet. I'm yet to discuss the results with my doctor but I assume I'll be tested for underlying causes because it's certainly not my lifestyle.
The main question though, apart from the symptoms of deficiency I've read about, fatigue, aches, anxiety and depression etc... I've had recurring nausea, some days worse than others, that gets bad enough that I need to lie down no matter where I am. I also lose co-ordination, become dizzy and clumsy, and my brain fogs up. This has been going on for perhaps five years and is at its worst now.
Can this be explained by the low Vit D? I can't find anywhere listing it as a symptom.
By the way, I shattered my heelbone seven weeks ago moving furniture. It really shouldn't have broken considering what I was doing. So I guess I must have been deficient long enough for my bones to soften significantly.
