How to Tell if You Have Vertigo?

Do you have Vertigo ? The months between October and early March might be a possible cause.

A study published in 2015 found a link between Vitamin D deficiency and benign paroxysmal positional vertigo or BPPV in which the calcium crystals become loose within the inner ear, causing episodes of off balance, dizziness, lightheadedness and nausea. There are several methods to help correct or re-position these calcium crystals but it may actually be helped by looking at your Vitamin D intake.
We are now entering the darkest months of the year and many of us will not be getting the positive effects of the sun for our Vitamin D replacement.

If you are not often outdoors, frail or housebound, or even if you are outside, your skin may be simply covered by layers of clothing.
Vitamin D is a simple supplement to consider taking during the dark winter months, which may help with these symptoms, but make sure you do not take very large amounts which may be detrimental to your health as well.
Check with your health care provider regarding dosages and what might be best for you.
