Current research has implicated vitamin D deficiency as a major factor in the pathology of at least 17 varieties of cancer as well as heart disease, stroke, hypertension, autoimmune diseases, diabetes, depression, chronic pain, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, muscle weakness, muscle wasting, birth defects, periodontal disease, and more.

This is very common in people with Fibro. Next time you go to your doctor, have your Vitamin D levels checked. I did and mine was almost non-existent! Now I take 2000 IU a day. I have heard of people able to get off their pain meds once their Vit. D levels are up again. Something to ponder and it can't hurt.
