I don't mind at all. Most of them I wrote off as being overweight, getting older and having three little kids. I know the supplements won't erase them because it is something we all deal with, but it will reduce them.

fatigue
muscle weakness (one flight of stairs made my muscles tired)
shortness of breath (again, one flight of stairs)
depression/anxiety (I have always had, but it has been worse lately)
irritibility
restless legs
cracks on the corners of my mouth
dental issues
muscle pains
headaches

I am really suprised I don't feel worse. Normal levels of Vitamin D are 30-100...mine was at a 12. My iron is low at 8.9...should be over 12. I am waiting one more detailed tests for the anemia.
