VITAMIN " D " deficiency adult male

Edited , 4 users are following.

it all started in 2016 when i took admission in a new college far from home .. within a month i noticed some changes in my body like i used to have a thick healthy hair which started falling in huge amount and my body was well toned also i started losing weight ... by passing days i started feeling very exhausted, always tired , confusions , slurred speech, irritation, unknown feeling of fear , depressed, memory loss , insomnia, muscle loss etc .. i consulted physician and they had my complete blood test which came back normal . But the symptoms were for real which were hard to explain and stress levels were on peak which boosted my symptoms. After a year all of a sudden my back started paining in the pelvis first and then spine which was very severe, i was not able to sit for at least 1 hour, one more year passed these symptoms were at their peak level .. at the end of my college life i was like living in hell with those symptoms that affected my daily life .. i did nothing other than resting in bed .. stress levels at peak i consulted more doctors but they also had my blood and endocrine tests which came back normal .. after some months a day came where i was crying in pain of my spine i went to a neurologist to check weather if i had any problems with my nerves or something .. there he ordered MRI scanning of spine and vitamin d blood test .. surprisingly vitamin d levels were low (13 ng/mol). At first he said nothing to worry and prescribed me some tablets shelcal xt and trypentin for 2 months . Those 2 months course were like hell for me . after 2 months again i visited that doctor and he prescribed me multivitamins for two more months ..after completion of that course on the last day of that tablet i felt better .. and now my vitamin d levels are at 28.3 ng/mol ..

i still have some pain in my back .. hair is falling.. sometimes i feel low on energy .. now i decided to take d3 tablets to raise my vitamin d levels .

SYMPTOMS I FACED WITH DEFICIENCY (13 ng/mol) :

hairloss

fatigue

getting sick in every 2 days

AFTER 4 MONTHS COURSE OF VITAMIN D3 (1000 IU )

medium hairfall

upto 60 % relief in back pain

still getting tired but not like before

improvements in muscle and bone weakness

less twitching than before

somewhat energetic in the first half of the day.

THINGS HELPED ME IN IMPROVING MY HEALTH :
