While I don't think vitamin D deficiency is the cause of fibromyalgia, taking adequate amounts of vitamin D is so easy, safe and cheap to do and test for, and, it is beneficial in so many other conditions that it is a "no brainer" to take. I can tell you from testing and giving vitamin D to hundreds if not thousands of patients that 5000 IU daily will get you into the sufficient range and I have NEVER seen this dose come close to toxic levels. In fact, I will put brand new patients on 10,000 IU per day and measure them in a month and have never seen anything close to toxicity. I have seen patients get high levels when they have "mistakeningly" taken 40,000-50,000 IU daily by mistake for several months. So ALWAYS have your vitamin D level checked within a month of taking your dose of vitamin D. Ideally do it at baseline then a month. (Read More Here...)
