Vitamin def not rare: Many women of your age need extra b vitamins and are deficient in vitamin d. I would recommend seeing your doctor and having blood work including a vitamin d level, thyroid tests and a vitamin test called spectrocell. I find almost everyone is lacking essential vitamins and minerals, even in sunny florida! also a clean diet helps tremendously. Look up michael pollan to help guide you.

See your MD: See your md and inquire about having a routine panel of bloodwork done. You might also need a B12 assessment. Would want to rule out anemia. May also recommend a dietary assessment. Smart to be asking about this at your age ! good luck.
