Fibromyalgia Any Vitamins Make Pain
Possibly: A child with finromyalgia would be very rare. I would suggest a comprehensive medical and psychological evaluation in a pediatric pain program to make sure nothing is missed. Some of my adult patients feel a bit better with vitamin d3, Alpha lipoic acid, acetylcarnitine, and fish oil. I can't comment on using these in children. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I was told I could have fibromyalgia but my vitamin d levels were also low. Been taking prescribed vitamin d but see no improvement/worsening pain?
Vitamin D's great...: How Great Thou Art Sunshine Vitamin! But let's face it...it's not likely to "fix" something like fibromyalgia....but I'm a believer in the stuff. It takes a while to replace so getting immediate levels after starting therapy is not really recommended. Also, how high is your doctor shooting for in terms of blood levels. In my patients I look for levels of 60-80. Have medical supervision though. ...Read more
Low vitamin d (12), fatigue with muscle and joint pain. Daily issue, restless legs at night...Possible fibromyalgia? How to test for it?
Physical exam: The best test for fibromyalgia is a physical exam by a skilled physician knowledgeable in fibromyalgia. There is no lab or imaging study that can confirm fibromyalgia.

It can take 9-12 months to correct a low vitamin d. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Are there any over-the-counter herbal or vitamin/mineral type substances that show any efficacy in treatment for fibromyalgia?
Homeopathy: I agree with dr. Baker's excellent answer -- and also want to mention that homeopathy can provide much benefit for people with fibromyalgia. You'll need a well-trained, experienced classical homeopath to take your case and treat you, though, because any one of hundreds of possible homeopathic remedies might be the one you need. Dr. Iris bell has done several studies. http://tinyurl.com/7ekkqhz. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
I hve fibromyalgia & my metabolism has decreased. Im currently on lyrica. What supplements or vitamins can I take to boost my metabolism i exercise 2?
In some cases: We don't really know what causes fibromyalgia. Some studies have found that many who have fibromyalgia have vitamin d deficiency, while others have not found this. In some studies taking vit d in those who were deficient improved symptoms. So worth checking d levels but also see a good holistic doc. Many with fibromyalgia are hypothyroid. Many have undiagnosed lyme disease. See comment for more:. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Each case is unique: Each case is unique, what works for one may not work for another.
