Hi guys, I have recently has a blood test and as a result been told that a lot of my vitamins and minerals are severely lacking in my body, and therefore I have been given the maximum clinical dose of each especially Vitamin D.
Having researched this in connection with Fibro, there are two schools of thought, which, contradicted each other.
1) As Fibromyalgia and its causes remain unknown, there is a link suggesting that the Fibromyalgia depletes known vitamin and mineral levels, which are required for the body to function at normal levels. Vitamin D depletion can cause chronic fatigue, aching muscles and impact on cognitive functions. It has been noted that several patients with Fibromyalgia also have a severe deficiency in their Vitamin D levels, the true nature of the correlation remains, at this stage, unknown.
2) Vitamin D along with other vitamins and minerals all play vital roles within the body, with Vitamin D's roles contributing to more than 200 different functions. Being deficient with this specific Vitamin, can cause the same symptoms as Fibromyalgia, it is thought that, by taking a high dose of Vitamin D, over a period of 3 months or more, could help, if not diminish symptoms completely.
As Magnesium aids the absorption, but is also proven for its ability to treat aching muscles, it is advised to take a high dose of this together with Vitamin D for a period no less than 3 months.
