    Hello Teresa
    Why are you taking folic acid, in the first place?! Though it is generally safe, these are symptoms of folic acid overdose, from Livestrong.com;
    "Signs and Symptoms
    Having too much folic acid in the body can result in a variety of signs and symptoms. Less serious side effects include digestive problems, nausea, loss of appetite, bloating, gas, a bitter or unpleasant taste in the mouth, sleep disturbances, depression, excessive excitement, irritability and a zinc deficiency. More severe signs include psychotic behavior, numbness or tingling, mouth pain, weakness, trouble concentrating, confusion, fatigue and even seizures. An allergic reaction to folic acid may cause wheezing, swelling of the face and throat or a skin rash."
    If u don't have any of these symptoms, it is unlikely that u have folic acid overdose; in all cases, you can simply take a folic acid level for confirmation.
    Otherwise, check for endocrine causes to ur menstrual irregularities, ovarian, thyroid, and adrenal, and maybe more.
