The Vitamin D and Fibromyalgia Connection

Yes, Jade- you got it right.

More About Vitamin D

Any level of Vitamin D Deficiency can cause aches and pains as a symptom- and Vitamin D Deficiency in Fibromyalgia occurs practically 100% of the time. Vitamin D Deficiency can cause Osteomalacia, where low calcium levels pull calcium from the bones to keep blood levels normal.

This can cause severe 'bone pain', that we experience as a general ache.

So, just a few OTHERsymptoms of Vitamin D Deficiency are:

* Generalized Pain
* Muscle Weakness
* Depression

Sounds suspiciously like Fibromyalgia, doesn't it? When someone has Early Symptoms of Fibromyalgia, they should be tested for and aggressively treated for Vitamin D Deficiency.

2 things about the Vitamin D and Fibromyalgia connection are unfortunate.

First, Vitamin D Deficiency is rarely ruled out as a potential cause or contributor to the chronic pain and depression of fibromyalgia.

Second, Even in the rare cases that it IS checked for, doctors have little awareness of the Vitamin D dosages and the blood levels necessary to constitute "sufficient" Vitamin D levels.

Fibromyalgia patients RARELY get enough Vitamin D to eliminate their osteomalacia! A great majority of Fibromyalgia patients improve with sufficient Vitamin D. While Vitamin D is certainly not their ONLY problem, it Absolutely Contributes to their symptoms.
