Anyone Else Think There Could Be A Connection?

Anyone Else Think There Could Be A Connection?

Did a little research about fibromyalgia and stomach problems. I know that I don’t have IBS , but my digestion is very slow. Was taking acid reducers but nothing had changed. So, stared googling and find a few studies that leaky gut and candida overgrowth could be a root of all my (our) pain. There is a special diet and different interesting findings.

Hi there! I have experienced stomach issues for many years and when I got Fibro they got worse. I’ve had two endoscopys, colonoscopy, Abdominal CT and ultrasound and they all come back ok. I do have IBS but I also know that I have gut health issues and was told I have gastroparesis after a empty study scan was done and showed that my stomach digested food very slowly which lead to a lot of symptoms I deal with. I have done tons of research and have found that our guts are the pathway to our wellness. It’s the heart of our immune system. That’s why diet and probiotics are very important. I had a horrible bout of gastroparesis earlier this year and I couldn’t eat much, I would get full quickly and had horrible gas and pain. It comes and goes now but I have lost weight during this time. I would see a gastroenterologist if you haven’t so they can see if there are any underlying issues. I have read that it’s very common for people with fibromyalgia/cfs suffer from stomach issues, have candida overgrowth, and slow digestion.

I discovered in reading medical articles that if you are gluten intolerant, your food cannot digest properly. This might be the reason for digestive problems.

@A MyFibroTeam Member, colonoscopy is a piece of cake for us, fibro warriors. Because of the symptoms described above, I had it 5 years ago, and they removed 3 polyps from one was precancerous. From that reason, I need to go every 3 year, I’m on the watch list (lol). Besides, ask them to put you out, won’t feel or remember a damn thing.
