It’s said that fibromyalgia patients are deficient in some vitamin which plays a factor in their condition. If you don’t mind me asking.. what are you all deficient in?? For me I’m not deficient in anything I’ve been checked several times and nothing. My doctor was even impress by my vitamin levels. Which shocked me because I’m not the best eater.

Retinol

Anemia

Cyanocobalamin

Folic Acid

Fibromyalgia (FM)

    I actually have never heard of that. I'd be interested in knowing

      it’s one of the things that’s always made me question my diagnosis. 😞 and it almost makes me think that maybe something is wrong with how my body processes vitamins.. maybe the blood test are wrong

    See thats the weird thing. Any time my vitamin levels have been checked ive been great. (Except one time as a teen when they restrained me to take my blood after i said no) One reason being i was on my period and figured that would skew the results. And of course i came back with an iron deficiency. said doctor then said my entire illness was based on that

      I thought my period would play a factor too so I’ve got it check on and off my period… everything comes back great!

    That’s assuming fibromyalgia isn’t it’s own condition which it is. There’s many doctors who deny it exists just like they deny ME/CFS or along COVID. I’ve never been vitamin deficient. Vitamin deficiency CAN play a role in making any condition worse or any person feel like 💩 in general. It’s good to check your vitamin levels, thyroid, etc. to rule out anything else that could be masking as fibromyalgia. I’ve had everything checked and there’s nothing. I have elevated levels of inflammation in my blood which could be anything according to my GP (she disagrees with my rheumatologist caring about those tests). Every doctor has different medical opinions and biases. The best thing everyone can do is to check ALL they can to make sure it’s something easy they can find in the body. For example, most people post-COVID pandemic have vitamin D deficiency which can cause hair loss and bone pain (among other factors). Fibromyalgia won’t cause either. Stress can cause hair loss and BONE pain feels different than musculoskeletal pain or skin pain. Do all the tests you can!

    I have low iron, vitamin D (but that’s common in the PNW) and low thyroid.

    I am generally vitamin D deficient. I have been prescribed mega doses of vitamin D several times. It levels out for a while and then goes back down again. Seems to change with the season due to the amount of sunshine I get in the summer.

    I have low levels of vitamins but I didn’t think it had anything to do with my fibromyalgia or the other way around

    But I have vitamin D and C deficiency but I honestly don’t think that plays a part but I mean I really don’t no as well and it goes up and down at times for my levels

    My Dr regularly checks Vitamins D3, Folic, and B's. Those all play a roll in general health and how we feel. He told me that vitamin levels are not a part of fibromyalgia per say, but a lot of people with it tend to be deficient in D3, B6, B12 and Folic.

    I’m anemic and that’s all they’ve found and it seems to only change my energy
