I guess in a way, going gluten free screwed me in that sense, but I feel so much better overall, I'll take a few ran down and blah days, over a glutening ANY DAY.

I have thought about eliminating other foods, but haven't gotten the courage, or maybe haven't been desperate enough yet. I live with constant pain, as do many of you, so I can't remember what it's like to be pain free.
Weather changes, barometric pressure changes, changes in my routine, lack of sleep, extra stress, all of that can trigger the fibro, and often does.
Someone posted about nightshades and hand/wrist pain. I might try eliminating the nightshades, if it will bring back function to my hands and decrease the pain in them, which is beginning to affect my daily life and work. I've been eating a lot of tomatoes lately. Hmmmm.....
I am self diagnosed gluten intolerant, and lately have been questioning that, since the fibro is still with me. It's good to know gluten free didn't cure others, either. (Not good that it didn't cure, just that I'm not alone in this! )
I'm not about to start eating gluten again. It DOES make a difference. If I get glutened, the joint and muscle pain returns in a quite evil manner, accompanied by fatigue and some GI additions.
Thank you all for being here and listening and sharing. All that really helps. A lot.
Diagnosed with fibromyalgia about 15 years ago. Fibro symptoms have improved but not gone away with gluten free living.
Osteoarthritis, mostly in hands and neck and lumbar spine. Not sure if going gluten-free has helped that problem, but it certainly can't hurt. (Am very grateful that so far no sign of the RA that is devastating my mother lately.)
Considering a dairy free trial. Considering.
