To ward off the winter illnesses that have already plagued the Nations Capital, I have decided to add a multi-vitamin to my daily regime. I choose a commonly used on (One a Day men). It has been about 4 days since I started and although I expected to feel no different, that couldn't be further from the truth.
I am constantly dizzy, light headed, slightly nauseated and all together "not right". Not to mention, through out the day I get intense hot flashes. Seriously. Hot flashes! I get light headed, then all hot and sweaty. My ears and hands are on fire. Then my feet. WTF.
I have read online that this is a pretty common side effect with taking multi vitamins. How strange is that. So now I find myself wondering if I should keep up with it and hope my body adapts or if I should just forget about it and ditch the pills.
