Vitamin D3 benefits?

Has Vitamin D3 deficiency treatment reduced the misery of Fibromyalgia for anyone?

I have been on Vitamin D3 for a month and now notice reduced aching at night. Have not been on it long enough to be sure it is the D3 making the difference.

My 51 year daughter was diagnosed with vitamin D deficiency and doctors told her one of the symptoms was body aching. My daughter suggested I be tested for vitamin D deficiency and sure enough I was very low.

Would like to hear others experiences.

Re: Vitamin D3 benefits?

I actually have a good vitamin d level but my sister is low and she had a lot of pain and fatigue. After being on vitamin d3 supplements for awhile she felt like a new person. It could be possible that you were misdiagnosed with fibromyalgia and once your level gets normal you should be able to determine if you have it or if it was the low level causing the symptoms. Hope it works for you!

Re: Vitamin D3 benefits?

I have always taken extra vit d because I know most people are deficient at some level. My rheumy tested me and said my levels are still a little low and now I'm on 50,000 units every 2 weeks. So far I haven't noticed any difference in pain levels, but I haven't been on it all that long. We'll see how it goes and I'll let you know if it helps.
