Fibromyalgia Pain Relief Tip: 10 Minutes of Sun Everyday (instead of supplements)


Vitamin D deficiency has been associated with fibromyalgia due to the similarities in symptoms. Deficiency in Vitamin D symptoms include fatigue, body aches and pain, mood swings, anxiety and depression. Though there is no strong evidence that vitamin D deficiency causes fibromyalgia, various clinical trials have found that fibromyalgia patients who are given vitamin D supplements showed significant improvements in fibromyalgia symptoms.

Spending just 10 to 15 minutes in mid-morning sun every day enables your body to produce enough vitamin D, according to the Food and Drug Administration. However, the time needed to produce sufficient vitamin D may vary according to your geographical location, your skin color, your weight etc. For optimal sun exposure, make sure that you do not wear any sunscreen on your skin as it impedes the absorption of both UVA and UVB of which the latter is what your body needs to produce vitamin D.
