If a child suffers from fibromyalgia, can you give any vitamins to help make their pain better?

If a child suffers from fibromyalgia, can you give any vitamins to help make their pain better?

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 more

Vitamin d deficiency and fibromyalgia connected?

Vitamin d deficiency and fibromyalgia connected?

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 more

Are there any over-the-counter herbal or vitamin/mineral type substances that show any efficacy in treatment for fibromyalgia?

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 more

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

Hair loss past 4 months. Have fibromyalgia but told not cause. Other blood tests ok. At this point, can taking a multi vitamin help?

Hair loss past 4 months. Have fibromyalgia but told not cause. Other blood tests ok. At this point, can taking a multi vitamin help?

Only if deficient: Taking a once-a-day multivitamin is fine to do. However, most people in the U.S. do not have specific vitamin deficiencies as a cause of hair loss. Therefore, taking a multivitamin is unlikely to alter the course of the hair loss. That means the hair loss may get better or get worse while taking the multivitamin, because the hair loss is most likely not related to the multivitamin. ...Read more
