You will find many articles, forums, and blogs on Fibromyalgia and Vitamin D out there.  Those of us that have Fibromyalgia may also be Vitamin D deficient.  We may not have it in the beginning, and it could develop later down the line.

Vitamin D helps control levels of calcium and phosphate in the blood and is essential for the formation of strong bones and teeth. Vitamin D also modulates cell growth, improves neuromuscular and immune function, and reduces inflammation.

How do you get Vitamin D?  From being in the sun is the #1 but with skin cancer on the rise, most of us avoid that route due to the alternative.

To find out if you are Vitamin D deficient, you just need a simple blood test, and your doctor can easily tell if you are deficient or not and start the proper treatment plan.

Recently I was amazed to find out that some doctors won’t even test a patient with Fibromyalgia for Vitamin D deficiency.  Vitamin D is so important for not only Fibromyalgia patients, but everyone in general.

A lack of Vitamin D can make you feel like you have zero energy, which you are struggling just to get through the day.  As a Fibro patient, this is something that you deal with on a day to day basis, but then you add a vitamin deficiency, that is essential for anyone, on top of that and you almost cannot function on a day to day basis.
