My daughter has been diagnosed as suffering from Fibromyalgia and has suffered from this for several years. After not having much luck with her Doctors, she asked me to attend an appointment with her (she gets so upset when there - she is given pain killers, nerve blockers, anti-depressants etc. but nothing helps much). I went with her and mentioned B12 and PA as I suffer from this and said I wanted her tested - lo and behold, she was just on the lower limit and I requested that she have the loading injections and then 3 monthly top-up which has now been done. When she was given an appointment at the pain clinic she dragged me along and I mentioned there about Vit D deficiency. They said she should be tested so she wrote to her doctor and he agreed. She was tested last week and got the result today Vit D 29 (50 - 150). However, the form reads "Below low range - no further action required". Is it me or does this seem totally absurd - why would you have parameters if you are then going to ignore them?? However, my real question is this - as she has deficiency in both B12 and Vit D, does it seem likely that, at the very least she has absorption problems and is it possibly a pre-cursor to Hashi's??
