Hi. I have fibro also. I've been gluten free for several years and find that has helped decrease my fibro symptoms. Gluten ramps up the joint and muscle pain, so for me, anyway, it's worth avoiding. Each of us is different, though.

Eating high sugar and/or highly refined foods, especially carbs, can also increase my fibro pain and fatigue, especially if I eat a lot of them. I do include about an ounce of excellent quality dark chocolate in my plan every day, though. Especially psychologically it's good for me!

Having fibro is a journey of discovery, isn't it? What works, what hurts, what to avoid, what to have more of. I've certainly gotten little help from western medicine. If I can help myself by diet and lifestyle, that gives me personal power and control. I prefer that to pharmaceuticals with nasty side effects, any day.

One day at a time...

LOL! I already posted this on the other thread, but I will re-post here.

No experience with it myself. I had a friend who had it a while back. She would eat a ton of fresh blackberries and SWORE that it made her feel so much better. She would eat TONS of them.
Not sure if that helps at all...

I just figured out how to start a new topic! Does anyone on the team have fibromyalgia and has eating a clean diet made a positive difference in pain level?
