With the lockdowns, and lack of sunlight, therefore a lack of vitamin D, could there be a connection to poor s!eep?
This YouTube video seems to say so.
If true, vitamin D supplements are readily available.

In the summer I am out, in shorts when possible, and get as much sunshine as I can. When this damned virus was only distant news I read that Vit D was being touted in China as a useful supplement to aid immune systems and have been taking a supplement every day even in the summer. I know that I mentioned it on a thread on here way back,(possibly February) and even...

You'd need to be out in the sun loads to get the appropriate amount of vitD.

I hope Emmie sees this.
There's not enough sun in England. You'd have to see a gp to get the right dose.

I'm prescribed it.
not in my case theland.
my bad sleep pattern has only occured in the last few months, up till then i could sleep through the night, now i can't. I put it down to a combo of things, nasal drip which cloggs up my throat, chest, makes me cough a lot, wakes me up, i start awake from bad dreams, and a possible sleep apnoe which can only be determined by a test.
if i thought taking Vit D would be the answer i would ask GP to prescribe it for me.

Sorry to learn that Emmie.
no need to be sorry theland, its one of those things, for now i have to bite the bullet, and see, talk to GP about options.
off topic, see that your thread about ab being too pc was pulled
My last blood test showed severe vit D depletion now on high dose supplement to be followed by loved dose for life. it's linked to joint pain, depression, sleep disorders, fatigue, brain fog, and I was surprised to read asthma and a long list of other things. Almost completely matched the long covid list so my GP practice are testing for low vit D first and treating it before referring on. I will let you know in a few weeks.
do that rowan
I remember several years back, my GP (now retired) took bloods to check and (after being away for three weeks for special tests) results came back that I needed Vitamin D ... 800 unit capsules daily which I have been on ever since. This really surprised me as I led quite an active outdoor life - however, did suffer joint pain and now have severe osteoarthritis.. Question is - is the Vit D helping?

I'm now taking it daily, no side effects and hope it helps protect me.
In the summer I am out, in shorts when possible, and get as much sunshine as I can. When this damned virus was only distant news I read that Vit D was being touted in China as a useful supplement to aid immune systems and have been taking a supplement every day even in the summer. I know that I mentioned it on a thread on here way back,(possibly February) and even provided a link to suppliers that were getting harder to find. Sleep like a log most nights.
I've been on prescription strength VitD for over a year after a test revealed a deficiency and then a bone scan found osteoporosis.
Question Author
I hope my gp or the government provide tne correct strength.
If you have tested deficient the GP would start you on a high dose at first.
I think the government will be supplying 400iu, which is a very low dose that will not help to raise levels of vitamin D for anyone who is low. Which us most of us.
I've been taking 5,000 per day...sometimes more...several times a week. Sometimes not at all in the summer. It's a good idea to also take vitamin K...but not at the same time as vitamin D. It has something to do with what happens to calcium in the body.
