Vitamin D for Fibromyalgia

Here is a study that shows the potential value of vitamin D against fibromyalgia. In this placebo-controlled study involving 30 women with fibromyalgia, oral supplementation with cholecalciferol (vitamin D3) for 20 weeks was administered with a goal of achieving serum calcifediol between 32 and 48 ng/mL. 

Results found a marked reduction in pain over the treatment period in the group treated with vitamin D, and a significant group effect was found according to visual analog scale scores, which was correlated with scores on the physical role functioning scale of the SF-health survey 36.

Furthermore, "Optimization of calcifediol levels in fibromyalgia had a positive effect on the perception of pain."
