Vitamin D: Although you're not taking an excessive dose, You may have raised your serum calcium level too much in view of symptoms which appeared after taking vitamin D. Ask your physician to check another vitamin D level as well as a serum calcium. If both are ok, your physician will have to investigate further and check thyroid, kidney, liver function, iron levels, B12 ,cbc,etc.
