Vitamin D for Fibromyalgia
Fibromyalgia has a significant impact on a person's quality of life and can even result in loss of employment. It is a painful condition that can also cause persistent pain, fatigue, loss of sleep, educed concentration and depression.
That is why vitamin D is essential to those suffering from this condition. Recent documented research in the Pain Journal showed that supplementing with vitamin D would help those suffering significantly.
The study stated: "Patients with fibromyalgia syndrome (FMS) typically have widespread chronic pain and fatigue. For those with low vitamin D levels, vitamin D supplements can reduce pain and may be a cost-effective alternative or adjunct to other treatment, say researchers in the current issue of PAIN®."
Talk to your doctor about supplementing with vitamin D if you are suffering from adverse symptoms.
