You should ask him to run both a vitamin B and vitamin D test. Vitamin D deficiency is common in people with Fibromyalgia (FMS). He'll probably run a full panel to see if anything else is going on. You are not very specific about your symptoms so I can't really offer much else. Are you seeing a rheumotologist? Are they knowledgable about FMS? Should you consider finding a chronic pain specialist? Take care.
