Vitamins that are good to know about...

Hi all,

I was reading up on vitamins in a blog I found about vitamins and supplements.  I'll summarize for you.  If you are a fibromyalgia sufferer, the chances of you needing vitamins B5, B6, and vitamin A are high.  Vitamin A helps support your immune system.  Some say it can also help combat certain forms of cancer.  Ok, vitamin B6 is a given for fibro people.  It helps combat several fibromyalgia symptoms including but not limited to nervousness, insomnia, inflammation of the colon, muscular control, and irritability.  It also can help balance hormones.  A common sign of a vitamin B5 deficiency is chronic fatigue.  Need I say more?
I insist that all people with fibromyalgia get on a high-quality multivitamin.  I am in my 20's and I take a multivitamin designed for women over 45 because of the symptoms I have of deficiency in vitamins and minerals.
Make sure that you eat before you take your vitamins.  It is not usually comfortable to take vitamins on an empty stomach.

Hope this helps some of you out there!
