I read an article that tried linking fibromyalgia and gluten intolerance.
Does anyone have both?
Has anyone benefitted from a gluten free diet?
Does anyone have any more information on the matter ?
I'm ceoliac and have fibromyalgia being gluten free means i don't feel sick in the stomach but doesn't stop me from being in pain everywhere else
I have fibro and seem to be gluten intolerant too! I can eat small amounts of gluten it seems but too much and im very ill!! :-( xx
I started a gluten free diet and I did benifit from it always tried a dairy free but the didn't work for me
I do find if I can keep completely clear of gluten I feel better and have less issues with my stomach but only if I keep off dairy , coffee and alcohol
I have a gluten intolerance. Haven't eaten gluten in over 3 1/2 years except for the accidental ingestion such as my mustard, worcestershire sauce and my bouillon. I thought for sure that I was going to die because I had diarrhea at least 3+ times a week for 3 1/2 years. Actually I just figured this out only a week ago. It was driving me crazy until I noticed that I was dumb and didn't see the words "barley" or "wheat" in the ingredient list even though I read all ingredients all the time. My brain just jumped over those words.
Anyway, to answer your question about there being a benefit by not eating gluten. Being gluten free has not eased my fibro pain or symptoms at all. Fibro is not caused by gluten.
