Today, I have scurvy. I only found out because Facebook randomly showed me a 3-year-old video on why scurvy shouldn't even be a thing, and I thought I don't get much vitamin C, I should check this out. So I have late stage symptoms, and was in the process of slowly dying from what I thought was fibromyalgia. FML

1. Get a doctor's advice. It sounds like maybe you have, but don't rely on facebook or webmd to diagnose or treat you. 2. Eat a balanced diet with a variety fruits and vegetables. If you're missing vitamin C you might be missing other things. 3. At least if it is scurvy you can treat it pretty easily and recomver.

don't believe Facebook, get yourself checked out by an actual doctor.

I wouldn't wish scurvy on anyone, but facebook taught you that you were dying? 🤣🙄

Feels unlikely, vitamin C is in everything. You would have to have a remarkably consistent and restricted diet to avoid it.

Don't you remember the story about the college student who only ate Ramen and stuff like that? He was lucky that his doctor caught his scurvy in an early stage.

I don't think you die from fibromyalgia.

You don't you just feel like your dying

I have fibro and the first thing they do is blood testing. I went to an endocarditis doctor and got a DX. You went to a child and WebMD. Trust me you would know if you really had fibro

Sorry I thought you said a three year old

It sounds like OP did go to a doctor. They “checked it out,” and came away with late stage scurvy. That sounds like a doctor visit to me.

Sorry to hear this OP, hope you can reverse it
