Hi, My name is Sandy and I really appreciated your reply to the blog on tanning booths. I've had fibromyalgia for decades and here in Western New York we have a very short season for sun exposure. My Vitamin D level was SUPER low a few years ago, so I started taking 10,000 IU daily of vitamin D3, and am STILL on that dose(with my Dr's approval). Last summer, after neck surgery due to a car accident, my fibro was flared so badly I could hardly turn my head. Massage therapy was great, but didn't last, so I ended up trying a tanning booth. The feeling of deep heat was wonderful, and I was talked into buying a bronzing lotion from the salon. I wasn't going every day, but 2-3 times a week and soon my son told me, " Mom, you'd better not go to Arizona, they'll try and ship you down to Mexico with the illegals!" It was then I started using sunscreen(SPF50) at the tanning salon instead of bronzer. The tanning booth still felt as great, but I wasn't browning anymore. I had another surgery for a herniated disc from the same car accident in Feb. of this year, and once again, my fibro is flared terribly. I may go tanning again soon, but now using the SPF50 every time. I do sit outside when I can to help up my Vit D levels, But there's just not enough warm weather here to be free of D3 supplements.
I hope you're feeling well. Have a great summer!
