I have read a lot (on here and independently) about a connection between Vit D deficiency and fibromyalgia so at my last appointment with my Rheumy nurse I asked her to test my Vit D levels to see whether this is the case with me. I have monthly bloods anyway so she reluctantly agreed, although I think she only did to shut me up! Anyway, when I phoned the GP surgery to get the results, they hadn't been done. Questioning my GP as to why, he told me they don't check vit d levels, unless they have been specifically requested by a kidney specialist!! I explained the reason why, and that the rheumy nurse had requested etc and he basically said 'tough!'. The lab won't test them.
Has anyone else in the UK has this problem? Have people self-medicated with Vit D and had results? If so, what doseage? Or does anyone have any ideas how I can get my Vit D levels checked?
