What’s going on with my body?

I’m 5 days late for my period and it’s extremely unusual for me. I’m usually very regular, every 28 days, give or take a day either side. I’m definitely not pregnant as haven’t had sex in 6 months.
I’ve got an eye twitch in my right eye that won’t go away. I feel drained and tearful.
I’ve also started to get restless legs at night, but sometimes during the day too.
I seem to have become really intolerant to alcohol. I had half a glass of wine last night and I’ve felt like death all day today since.
Is it a good idea to call my GP about all this?

I understand you’re not pregnant as I think I made fairly clear I was trying to be helpful and lend some validation to your hunch that your twitchy eye and the disruption to your cycle could be connected. Because it’s a symptom I’ve had when pregnant, and is therefore I assume to do with my hormones. But anyway... all the best.

I agree with this. Restless legs and twitchy eyes are symptoms I've been getting while pregnant.
OP, we're not saying you're pregnant but that it could be a hormonal problem as it's hormones that cause these in pregnancy, ie similar issues with hormones but not pregnant

Second (or third?) the magnesium. I felt like this at the start of the year, had bloods done including vitamin d and my vitamin d was shockingly low which seemingly had also made me calcium and magnesium deficient (they all work together). Was put on a vitamin d loading dose along with magnesium and my calcium + magnesium rectified, vitamin d is going up slowly but surely and I feel quite a lot better. Taken a few months though.Get some bloods done and push for vitamin d to be included in that as it isn’t normally.

Yes to magnesium. Supplements are fine (I don't see the pount of the sprays and they did not work for me) - lack of magnesium is implicated in the restless legs, the twitches, and the intolerance of alcohol. I use a quite cheap one from Amazon and I can drink moderately without any ill effects now and almost never have leg cramps or restless legs any more and both of these were horrendous before. I take potassium too - I find the two work together better than either alone OP. Both from Amaz. I'll post links to what I take if you're interested?
