I have had
Fibromyalgia for the last 23 years. It is only in the last 3 years
that it has become an invasive part of my lifestyle. The shooting
pain is excruciating. The dull continuous pain is tiresome and has
cut out many physical acivities I used to love. The medications for
pain control can dull your mind and cause anxiety and confusion ( not
good for work) but then neither is the unsubtle screams that some
pain can cause. I cry simply by being touched some days...others
(good ones) I can crawl out of bed holding on to things until I can
"walk it off' (ya right) or at least become mobile enough to get
to work. I have always been active (some would say overactive) so
this has completely changed my world and my relationship to it. Here
is a list of sights that may explain and help those of you dealing
with this chronic painful disease that they currently have no cure
for..but are using many of us as lab rats for.
Vitamin D and Fibromyalgia:
Because of previous stomach surgery my body no longer makes Vitamin
D. I currently take over 78,000 iu's a Week and I am still in
great pain and my blood tests come back almost nill for vitamin D.
This can also harm Kidney function, but right now I am just tring to
find the right dosage of vitamin D to stop the pain.
HOWEVER, I know it works for Fibromyalgia because when I first went
on it, the pain dissapated for almost 8 months before my body started
deleting the vitamin D again. So try it if you have fibro..it might
make your pain go away and stay away.....The human lab bunny.
