Vitamin D Supplementation Helps Manage Pain

Story 2 Image

“Sleep and pain share neurotransmitters in their physiological processes,” the authors explain. Decreased vitamin D levels have been associated with infectious diseases, inflammation, and sleep disorders, all of which can affect pain. Such conditions as fibromyalgia, rheumatoid arthritis, low back pain, lupus, and more have been associated with disordered sleep.

“We can hypothesize that suitable vitamin D supplementation combined with sleep hygiene may optimize the therapeutic management of pain-related diseases, such as fibromyalgia,” Dr. Andersen stated. “It is necessary to understand the possible mechanisms involved in this relationship, including immunological and neurobiological pathways related to interrelationship among sleep, vitamin D and pain.”

Editor’s Note: Periodic blood testing to determine serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D levels may be helpful for those experiencing chronic pain.
