Not likely: Vit. D deficiency causes rickets and osteomalacia- bone structure problems, not emotional issues. If doctor found u vit d deficient, i assume taking vit d supplement. This should correct any deficiency in a few months, if taking an adequate amount. Your complaints sound more like anxiety problems. Begin a healthy diet, exercise daily, regular hours of rest, 8 cups h2o & no caffeine to begin.

Probably not: But it couldn't hurt to take viamin d and see if you get better!
