Can too much vitamin d give you hot flashes and night sweats?

Hypercalcemia typically manifests as constipation, nausea, polyuria (excess urination), and in severe/chronic cases, renal problems and cardiovascular issues. None of these issues would manifest as hot flashes or night sweats. ...Read more
