Good start


The most common vitamin deficiency is D, which causes a lot of nonspecfic pain and some other problems. Especially with the weight loss, or if your pain syndrome does not resolve quickly, it would be wise to continue to seek a cause -- possibly malabsorption contributing to a vitamin deficiency. Good luck and stay proactive

See the pediatrician


This is a tough question that really needs to be evaluated and answered by a health care provider who is actually seeing and caring for your baby. I would schedule an appointment with the pediatrician to get this checked out.

Unlikely to be a vitamin deficiency, although low vitamin K can cause bruising. However, there can be more serious things going on. You need to see your doctor.

Easy bruising


The most common causes of easy bruising are: (1) taking aspirin or similar anti-inflammatory medication (including steroids); having a platelet defect (which is what aspirin causes) but there are other diseases that can do this; taking a blood thinner (eg, warfarin). Among the vitamin deficiency causes, inadequate vitamin C intake is the one most often associated with bruising and bleeding (gums).

Yes, qualified


Stress can activate a toxic metal cadmium which breaks down vit D and increases the need for magnesium, zinc, B-12, vit C, bioflavanoids and essential fatty acids. The stress vitamin pantothenic acid may be needed. Robert Ritch's article Natural Compounds (google it) describes 22 supplements that improve the eyes and they are all helpful in preventing stress and inflammation elsewhere.

Get seen


I trust you are not hypothyroid. I would not address this as a "vitamin deficiency" though a sensible multivitamin-and-mineral supplement may be worth taking during this illness. I'd get with your physician and ask whether you have telogen effluvium or some other recognizable problem, and whether there's anything to suggest a scalp infection.
