Hello - I've never posted on a board before but have been reading a lot of posts here. To try and make a long story short because I don't have the energy to get into all of it - I'm looking for opinions here. I'm 38 y.o. suffering from intermittent pain mostly hands and arms, neck and shoulders and continual extreme fatigue and fuzzy head for years and years along with a ton of other complaints. Have been seeing dr.'s for years for all the various complaints. even recently had an MRI because I swore I might have MS. Dr. didn't think so but had me take the test just to rule it out. Test was negative. Follow up appt. brought up FM - dr. said "I think you do have this" but it's been awhile since we've done your labs - I had a dystal gastric bypass in 1996 so frequent labs are the norm - all the labwork came back good until the Vit D. Level is only 10 - it had been low before too but the dr. tested the wrong vit d on follow up so we thought the level had gone up a lot so I stopped taking it - big mistake! Now Dr. is saying via e-mail that she doesn't want to confirm FM until I've taken 50,000 iu once a week of vit D for 6 months! I was so relieved to have a dx after about 10 years of swearing I'm a hypochondriac now I'm frustrated and ready to scream and cry again at the thought of it being back to being all in my head. Sorry for the huge post - kind of got on a role - my question to anyone is this: Could it still be FM with the addition of Vit D deficiency or is it possible most is in my head and some symptoms are vit d deficiency? I know forming total opinion is hard without knowing all my symptoms but any thoughts are appreciated. Thanks.
