Vitamin D and Chronic Pain

Pain Treatment Topics (click on link) has some very interesting information regarding the link between a Vitamin D deficiency and chronic musculoskeletal pain.

There are several articles to read regarding Vitamin D, as well as some case study information on Vitamin D deficiencies in people with Fibromyalgia. 

It is important to remember that Vitamin D is NOT an analgesic (pain reliever). And, of course, this information is intended only to educate and NOT diagnose. It is safe to take Vitamin D with medications, from what the documents located at the above-linked URL state. However, please talk to your doctor about how much Vitamin D you should be taking.

Be well, and be well informed!

  1. When I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia all the Doctor told me was to get cardio excercise for at least 30, 3 times a week and to take vitamin D supplements. He never told me why and with all the reading I have done in the last few months never came across why I need to take them. That you, I now I know what to look for.
