Low vitamin d (12), fatigue with muscle and joint pain. Daily issue, restless legs at night...Possible fibromyalgia? How to test for it?

Several tests needed: Fibromyalgia has no specific tests. It is more of a pattern of tender painful sites on the body, and exclusion of other possibilities. A low vitamin d level can cause many symptoms, which should resolve with supplementation. Have doctor prescribe amount. Restless legs are possibly unrelated, and treatment is available. Muscle/joint pains have many possible causes for which screen test can be done.
