Have You Been Tested For SAD?

Have You Been Tested For SAD?

After going through about two months of horrible stomach pain, my sister asked me whether or not I've been tested for Seasonal affective disorder
Also called: SAD, seasonal depression. She told me that it is common in most fibromyalgia patients. Is this really true? And has anyone got tested for SAD?

@A MyFibroTeam Member - Are you still trying to get pregnant? I would have my tummy checked by my OB/GYN doctor.
If you still have the pains in your stomach - get it checked out, Hon.

I have a new keyboard now. My grandson is going to check to see if he can scan the new picture. I have an updated one..

Thought for the Day: Restoration always seems to bring Joy...

I have been taking vitamin D for about two years now. And as for my stomach I've had both a endoscopy and colonoscopy, CT scan, and ultrasound. And nothing has comes up besides inflammation. So the next step is to have a pill camera insert to see my small intestine.
