I just wondered whether any of you were diagnosed with vitamin D deficiency at some point along your fibro journey?
When I was being tested this time last year one of the things that was noted was how severely deficient I was in Vit D.
No surprise really, I think most of the country suffers, but with it effecting joints and bones my Rheumatologist said it was important to manage.
I was put on a 4 month heavy dose to boost my levels and then a maintenance tablet to last me until summer. My GP thought by summer the sunlight levels would be high enough to get the vitamin without supplement.
We're now back in January and its no better than it was originally but this time it hasn't been suggested its managed!
Are any of you on a permanent maintenance dose?
Do you self manage this with off the shelf vitamins or get the prescribed ones (which seem to be bigger in dose).
Do you see a benefit pain / joint wise or is it still masked by your fibro and other health conditions?
