She goes on to add "Vitamin B12 deficiency can be associated with altered sensation in your fingers and toes and also a fatigue. Vitamin D deficiency is commonly associated with depression - actually can give you an overall muscle weakness and is associated with an increase in falls and then if you do fall, of course, that puts you at an increased risk for fracture," Lund says.
