Vitamin D and Fibromyalgia pain cure


For those of you new to my blog, Vitamin D deficiency’s are considered to cause Fibromyalgia flare ups and Vitamin D is recommended for pain relief.

My chiropractor suggests doses of 5000 to 10,000 units of Vitamin D3 daily,

Have your vitamin D checked and increase your intake if needed. Might just help your Fibro pain.

How To Dress For Less Fibromyalgia Pain


  1. Get rid of tight clothing, opt for loose-fitting clothes. Maternity tops are perfect as they support the back and are loose in front.
  2. Don’t wear elastic waist bands. If you must wear them choose the ones with waist ties.
  3. Choose soft fabrics. Those with stretchy material are best.

Alcohol and Fibromyalgia: to Drink or Not to Drink?


Alcohol and Fibromyalgia: to Drink or Not to Drink?

This surprised me. Believe it or not (check the link above) they say that moderate drinkers have less pain than teetotalers or over drinkers. I am a teetotaler and intend to stay that way. I have drunk occasionally, but not found it overly helpful for anything although now that I am taking the medications out of my body things should be easier to take if I do want a drink.
