Vitamin B deficiency is one possibility. Take over the counter multivitamins for 2-3 weeks and if that does not resolve the matter, it would be prudent to see a doctor. For healthy diet: http://www.choosemyplate.gov/., exercise 30 minutes/day, drink enough water daily so your urine is mostly colorless, have safe sex, no tobacco alcohol weed or street drugs. Get HPV and Covid vaccines.
