Vitamin D And Fibromyalgia

Vitamin D And Fibromyalgia

Has anyone seen the study by the Mayo Clinic about the connection between fibromyalgia and vitamin D? I donโ€™t know how to add the link, but you might be interested in looking it up.

True I have always said that people with Fibromyalgia have Vitamin deficiencies and I also have iron deficiency anaemia as well have to buy some magnesium tablets as well.

Definitely there needs to be a Poll on how many people have Vitamin deficiencies on this Website.

Low Iron is related to restless leg syndrome and low vitamyin D has a strong connection to fibromyalgia pain.
As we get older our ability to absorb โ€œDโ€ from the sun becomes less effective, therefore the need for supplements. It has been recommended by my primary doc to use sublingual drops of โ€œDโ€ and Iron for max benefit and fewer side effects.

I would love to be able to take Vitamin D. However, I was diagnosed in late 2017 with Hypercalcemia caused by Sarcoidosis. It seriously affected my kidneys so have been on Prednisolone ever since. As a result of the steroids I now have Osteoporosis so take Calcium supplements even though my calcium levels are normal. I also have to take Alendronic Acid which can have horrendous side effects, which luckily I haven't experienced yet.
My 'Geriatric Medicine' doctor, I am only 62!, wants me to take vitamin D as my levels are quite low. However, the Renal consultant won't let me take it due to the affect if may have on my kidneys, I now have CKD. I appear to be in a Catch 22 situation.
I had a blood test last week prior to my Renal appointment this week and I noticed they had asked for Vitamin D levels to be checked. I will hopefully find out, tomorrow, the outcome.
