Vitamin D and Fibromyalgia

A new study finds that vitamin D supplements could help alleviate the often painful and debilitating symptoms of fibromyalgia. The research, which was conducted in Austria, finds that taking vitamin D supplements can reduce the chronic, stabbing, and painful symptoms related to fibromyalgia. When the researchers analyzed a group of women with fibromyalgia, they found that the women reported fewer symptoms of pain and fatigue after taking the vitamin D supplements for 24 weeks. Overall, these women also reported higher levels of physical functioning. Obviously, it’s too early to tell whether vitamin D supplements could be an effective long-term strategy to manage fibromyalgia symptoms.

Fibromyalgia is a severely disabling condition, and the pain can be so sudden and intense at times that the person may barely be able to move. However, in spite of this, fibromyalgia does not feature in Social Security disability listings.   The Social Security Administration does, however, have guidance that has been made available to administrative law judges on the right way to assess cases involving symptoms of fibromyalgia. Not surprisingly, as it very often happens in cases of chronic pain, it isn’t easy for a person who suffers from fibromyalgia to claim benefits, but that doesn’t mean that your Social Security disability benefits claim will never be approved. Contact a Social Security Disability attorney if your benefits have been denied and you suffer from fibromyalgia.

"I would highly recommend this firm to everyone, Wonderful firm, they took my case , when I was told by a few firms in Ohio that I did not have a case, Marc Whitehead and Associates settled the case in a timely fashion"  Delecia via
"I want to thank the office of Marc Whitehead and especially Jaime Almaguer who was my caseworker. I had begun the disability process myself until I heard about this lawyers' office in Texas. Seemed strange working with folks across the country that I would never meet. Nevertheless, they were able to get my disability first time around. I felt comfortable discussing my issues privately with them and being able to let Jaime do the work. He was responsive, caring and very professional. Thank you all so much, this has changed my life."  Lynne via
