Dairy and fibromyalgia

Feb 01, 2018 8:33 PM

Had anyone found relief from fibro by going dairy free?

Yes, no dairy, gluten and I limit my sugar intake.

I can’t afford gluten free but I did try.. didn’t change much for me. I only eat rice anyway which is gluten free in a way so I suppose I maintain the habit.. no cakes or bread either. I take vitamin b complex and it changed my life..the pain doesn’t go away no but somehow it changed how low I feel

My mother has fibromyalgia and a myriad of other conditions. She did go dairy free for a few months because I am lactose intolerant. Dairy free actually made her symptoms of Fibromyalgia worse, so had to start consuming dairy again.

You can use other types if flour that are gluten free. The Internet is covered with recipes and blogs.

Have been thinking about doing paleo diet as I've heard a few fibro friends talk about it in a good way. Little to no dairy on that. I'll miss cheese :(

I recommend the paleo, my neice has fribro and is a different person since she went GF and dairy free, also no white sugars such as corn , potato, cane. I use raw sugar, but buy it with origin of the country you live in. My stomach can't handle any but US grown. But person note it helps with my nerve pain and my GI track.
