I hope you've been doing well lately.
Did you know that certain vitamin deficiencies can cause extreme fatigue? Other symptoms may also develop: they will depend on the vitamin or mineral that our body lacks.
Here are a few examples of what vitamin deficiencies can provoke:
- Vit A - fatigue, visual problems, dryness of the skin and eyes, etc;
- Vit B12 - muscle weakness, digestive disorders (constipation, gas, diarrhoea), pale skin, mood swings, etc;
- Vit C - general weakness, loss of appetite, poor immunity, etc;
- Vit D - fatigue, muscle cramps, mood swings, etc.
Minerals deficiency, like that of iron or magnesium, can also cause fatigue and a number of other symptoms, such as heart palpitations, pale skin, hair loss, headaches and dizziness in the case of iron deficiency, and anxiety, insomnia, nausea, vomiting, muscle spasms, etc in the case of magnesium deficiency.
Have you ever experienced such symptoms due to a vitamin or mineral deficiency? How did you find out what was the cause? What was the treatment you got?
Feel free to share and discuss in the comments below!
thanks @Courtney_J , yes, I've already had vit D and iron deficiency, taking supplements helped.
I've never been tested for vitamin deficiency, and yet my mum is a nurse, she makes me do blood tests every other year, but she never talked about vitamin deficiencies.

@sophiejane yes, I believe, such blood tests are rarely prescribed.
