CURED of Fibromylgia 8 years ago! In reference to: http://www.vitamindcouncil.org/health-conditions/fibromyalgia/ – I find it REALLY SAD that research falls short on either the amount of Vitamin D supplemented and/or the amount of time supplemented in their so-called research. I had "Fibromyalgia for 19 years. PAIN – years of PAIN! Multiple doctors including a rheumatologist diagnosed me with "Fibromyalgia". Yes, I had pain in more than 11 of the trigger/tender points. I fully believe there is a cause for every health condition and it isn't a lack of prescription drugs. I went on a quest to find the cause. With the help of a very cooperative doctor I had my blood tested (in March of 2007) and I was found to be severely Vitamin D deficient (11 ng/mL). I started taking Vitamin D in higher doses until I reached about 60 ng/mL. I then took 4000 IU each day FOREVER (because I am not outside every day – midday – with my skin exposed and I don't live next to the equator). Approximately 10 months later I was COMPLETELY FREE OF PAIN (not in 8 weeks). I noticed a continual improvement of symptoms during this time (starting at 3 or 4 months, I think). Just because your blood level reaches an optimal level of say 50 or 60 ng/mL, this doesn't mean that your body is going to magically heal/repair in one minute. It takes time! What is Fibromyalgia "Syndrome"? Fibromyalgia = widespread muscle and joint pain, fatigue, and other symptoms. Syndrome = set of symptoms. Not disease – SYMPTOMS! The cause – no one seems to know. The "drug" companies – they all have their "money-making" ideas – the commercials make me SAD – they are treating the symptoms – not the cause – and getting RICH from it. Well – for me – I NEVER HAD FIBROMYALGIA – I had a severe Vitamin D deficiency. Goodbye Fibromaylgia! Goodbye PAIN! PAIN FREE for 8 years! There is nothing worse than reading about research (done over 8 weeks or with a dose of Vitamin D that is way too low) that says it doesn't help or CURE Fibromyalgia. There is nothing worse than the Food and Nutrition Board establishing the "NEW" RDA of 600 IU/day (wake up Food and Nutrition Board). It is also a HUGE joke when materials/websites list the foods that you can get your Vitamin D from. BIG JOKE at the expense of millions of people suffering in pain. Hopefully, I have helped at least one person by posting this. Hopefully at least one person will put an end to their misery, pain, and exhaustion. By the way, I forgot to mention, an unexpected bonus was an end to my life-long eczema (which had been infected most of the time).

It's a damn disgrace that you charge a fee for readers to get information about Vitamn D. Shame on you.
There is a lot of information on this website that is for free! Most of it has been brought to you by people like me that paid a $50.00 fee for a one year membership. This membership fee and also don…

I've began to supplement Vitamin d3&k2 combo. D3:3000IE / K2: 45ug. I felt great the first month, my sleep decreased like 2 hours in total by first day and i still felt energized, it further decreased 2 hours after a month and i felt tired, got insomnia for a while so i started use even more magnesium. 1600mg of magnesium citrate&lysin chelate= 486mg elemental, wasn't enough. So i used chloride magnesium and that saved my insomnia so i can fall asleep, that gives probably atleast 2000 elemental with my rub, an ounce gives 3262mg elemental magnesium!. I still have problems sleeping a whole night. I go to bed at 9 and waking up at 3 and are tired, thirsty and having a headache usually. I thought to myself that i got hypercalcemia due to my symptoms. I did use alot of calcium as supplement because i couldn't fall asleep without it either, so i guess my whole mineral supplies are unbalanced to say the least. I did however had no issues with supplements before i introduced vitamin d3 to my diet. Am i sensitive to the type of vitamin d3 in my supplement? Are there different vitamin d3 sources? Should i stick to a lower dose?
I do not know if you will come back to read this. If you figure this all out at some point, I would appreciate if you came back and told me what happened. For example if you use a lower amount of Vit…
