Hi,

Please get Blood tests for vitamin B12 and D3 first- If they are below normal then you need supplementation. Omega fatty acids are not vitamins. In deficiency diseases, the medicines take some time for the effects to come.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Gopal Goel, Orthopaedic Surgeon
