I had a blood test about a month ago and found out that I had a mild vitamin D deficiency. My doctor prescribed me 2000IUD of vitamin d3 and I took it for 2 weeks. I then bumped up my dosage level to 3000IUD, as it was coincidentally really helping with my acne and I was so happy with the results. By the way, I have NOT been taking any magnesium supplements.
However, the other day, I experienced a panic attack for the first time, and ever since, I have been feeling very jittery and tense, with occasional waves of panic, as though it might come back again. I feel anxious all the time. I have no reason to panic, and I usually handled stress well in the past.
Is it a possibility that not taking magnesium supplements while taking vitamin d3 is causing a deficiency in magnesium? I researched online, and apparently the anxiety and symptoms i seem to be experiencing are similar to the side effects of magnesium deficiency.
If you strongly suspect this is the case, what should I do? How much and what type of magnesium should I take in order to balance out the levels of Vitamin D, and for how long? Should I stop taking the vitamin d for now?
Thanks! Would really appreciate your help.
