Vitamin D deficiency?

Sep 29, 2016 12:06 AM

I wonder how many here that have Fibromyalgia also have low levels of Vitamin D? Just curious.

Need to soak up some sun. 🌞 🌴 🚶

I don't metabolize Vit D well, I always have a low Vit D level.
By the way couldnt respond to your entry about LPN. It wouldn't let me. Yes me to. 13 yrs as a LPN made Nationals on the test. Worked on Orthopaedics and Telemetry and Nursing Homes. Loved counseling was very difficult to have to give up my career. Had no choice. Sorry to hear your story. Hey we must move on and do the best we can with what life gives us right? That's all any of us can do!

I used to live in MN. so thought my deficiency was due to their long winters.. (Brrr). But it's the same in Arkansas. Have talked with many others who have the deficiency. I wonder what's causing it among those with FMS..

I do always have -being sick so much it's hard to be outside in the sun!

I have to take 2000 daily then 50000 every 2 weeks

I take 2000 daily but occasionally my levels drop and I have to take the prescription strength. I love the sun - for me it feels good. (when it's not 90 degrees F and humid). So even with sun exposure my levels are low..

I've had low vitamin D for over a decade. I live in GA, but don't go outside much the past few years. I guess it's my thyroid or maybe meds, but I overheat quickly and sunburn (worse with protection).
