Have any of you been tested or know you have food sensitivity that have helped your fibromyalgia?
Gluten makes my fibro flare aggressively so I avoid it completely
They don't call it allergies unless you eat something and you can die from it, now they call it over sensitive. I have been over sensitive to bell peppers for 40 years. I just asked my family doctor to get an allergy test for food in fall of 2017. The test showed reaction for wheat, barley, oat and of course bell peppers. I took my self off gluten, I found out that will be the easiest way for me, due to so many thing have wheat in it. The reason I asked for a test was more than one reason, I have had stomach pain my whole life, my stomach was burning when I ate wheat and the pain was so bad I could barely walk when it hit my intestines. I think I have had that over sensitivity for wheat, barley and oat since I was a child, but since it was only stomach pain it was never tested before. The blood test didn't show anything, but the skin test did.
Certain foods cause inflammation in the body. Inflammation causes more pain . If you can find the ones you are sensitive to, you can help feel better by eliminating them. Look up the anti-inflammatory diet list. It should help.
@A MyFibroTeam Member. If you mean I get blooded and gas following that, I have to say no, not that I noticed. But I hear a lot of people complain that they get very blooded of eating gluten. If the cause is eating gluten or too much, I don't know.
