Low Vitamin D levels. Please help...

Hello everyone. I recently got blood and urine test done from an endocrinologist. It was the test for the 24 hour pee thing. I got my test results back; everything was fine except I seem to be low on Vitamin D.

There is something else that I would like to add... For the past 2 years of my life I have been suffering from anhendonia... I am just wondering if Vitamin D deficiency can cause that.

Here is all my symptoms I am getting:

Muscle spasms
Loss of Sex Drive
Loss of positive emotions

These were what the results were:

VITAMIN D, 25-OH, TOTAL                                                                 22                    L                  30-100 ng/mL
VITAMIN D, 25-OH, D3                               22
VITAMIN D, 25-OH, D2                               <4

                   25-OHD3 indicates both endogenous production and supplementation. 25-OHD2 is an indicator of exiguous   sources such as diet or supplementation. Therapy is based on measurement of Total 25-OHD, with levels  or 30 ng/mL

Low vitamin D can cause hair loss.  It is also associated with depression and you seem to have symptoms of depression.
