Hi all, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia last year. I recently went to see my GP as the pains in my legs (mostly front of thighs) and spine are getting worse, and I generally feel horrible and have gained 3 stone in the last three years (I've joined Weightwatchers recently though!). He sent me off for a whole load of blood tests as it had been 9 months since I had any done. They all came back normal (as I expected) but I just found out that my Vitamin D level is too low. The symptoms of Vitamin D deficiency are muscle and joint pains, fatigue, weakness, weight gain (vit d regulates insulin and metabolism), depression, pains in ribs, thighs, pelvis, hips and feet. My GP wrote me out a prescription for Vit D and calcium supplement which I'm taking twice a day. I have read that it can take up to 12 months for the levels to be restored but I'm hopeful that some of my symptoms might ease off in time. I will keep you all posted. I'm feeling more positive already which is a good thing. Just thought I would share this, something for you to all bear in mind next time you are at the surgery.
