Fibromyalgia and gluten intolerance

Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia and gluten intolerance


Avatar f tn Link between AITD and gluten intolerance.... (Autoimmune Thyroid Disease) for clarity. "Screening for gluten intolerance" - That is the tricky part. The Celiac blood test will not screen for gluten "intolerance" or sensitivity. Holistic Drs do this only by elimination diet from what I've heard. Then upon certain food group introductions is this more clarified. Do they do this differently in Auzzie land? ANSWER to the possible link ?
Avatar n tn I am only 25 and have all the symptoms of fibromyalgia, CFS and MCS. I am unable to get out of bed some days but because of my young age my doctor is not seeming to take me seriously. He tests my thyroid and iron levels and many other things, but has not sent me to a fibromyalgia specialists. Also I have not been able to get disability cheques, so I am on government assistance:(. Does anybody more experienced have any advice for me? This can be quite stressful.
Avatar f tn 1. Candida Infection. 2. Food allergies, Wheat intolerance, Gluten Intolerance, etc. Note: This could be also a consequence of #3 below 3. Gut Dysbiosis/Leaky Gut Syndrome Note: This is another health issue, normally IGNORED by most doctors! This alone could cause ALL the symptoms you have posted! There's a simple urine test for this: Mannitol and Lactulose urine test. 4. Nutritional deficiencies and tissue mineral deficiencies (not blood test).
1943833 tn?1349280189 I have wondered often over the last few years if I have Fibromyalgia, but have never asked a doctor about it because I don't seem to have the tender points. I'm wondering how many of these symptoms are "common" for fibromyalgia. Or maybe CFS? -occasional severe sensitivity to noise. I can be sitting in a room, with people around me and noises I would normally not mind (kids playing, etc) will "hurt". I don't really have a headache, and it's not an actual pain.
Avatar f tn speech and language/social communication, sensory differences, therapies etc etc this will enable a child with autism (or indeed any child), to be able to access learning and process information to a greater degree. I have fibromyalgia and have less headaches/nausea etc on glutein/dairy free diet. My son is on the autistic spectrum and I have had him on the diet then took him off it. I haven't noticed a huge difference to cause me to want to put him back on it.
Avatar n tn Have ANA positive, past liver enzymes off, thyroid regulated by medicine, take losec and zantac for hernia, avoid gluten and fatty foods, celexa for the fibro, and now pentacid for the crohn's. Was being followed for lupus, but still don't know if this is all fibro-related?? Suggestions??
209591 tn?1267418314 Thanks to a website called Medhelp, I was messaged from several people that were originally diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and later with Celiac Disease. After researching the symptoms and my current laboratory testing, I am starting to wonder if it could be Celiac Disease. I am in desperate need of medical advice, from someone that has more experience in Autoimmune Diseases.
Avatar f tn Many of these have overlapping symptoms. These include gluten intolerance, gout (a form of arthritis), and restless leg syndrome. Some drs believe food sensitivity itself could sometimes be responsible for some of the pain and fatigue of FM. Seven foods to avoid: 1. Aspartame (nutraSweet) 2. Food additives including MSG (momosodium glutamine) and nitrates, 3. Sugar, fructose, and simple carbohydrates, 4. Caffeine, 5. Yeast and gluten, 6. Dairy, 7. Nightshade plants. Hope it helps.
Avatar f tn Have you been tested for nutritional deficiencies -blood work and tissue analysis for minerals? Also have you been tested for gluten intolerance, food allergies etc. How about Thyroid tests? Let me know about any tests and findings, medications, lifestyle, diet, etc. I'll get back to you after you reply. Hang in there, there always things you can do. We're all here to help and support one another. Cheers!
Avatar m tn Wishing you well. Niko PS Have you completely ruled out gluten and dairy intolerance? GAPS and SCD, both incorporate grain-free and dairy-free diets, I believe, as these 2 food groups are usually the most offensive.
Avatar f tn This is not a question. I believe that Fibromyalgia is caused my Gluten intolerance and MSG. Those two affect the IBS that plays a role in FM. I've felt so much better excluding these out of my diet. Dairy intolerance is another one. I started taking Gabapentin and that has given me back 80% use of my body. I can clean my house now and even garden for a short period of time. It has allowed me to walk about 1/4 of a mile each day.
Avatar f tn According to this video and several other resources I've encountered, people with the diagnosis of IBS all have gluten intolerance and should stay away from gluten. This video isn't the only source that is saying to simply stay away from all grains, but it is a good video. It even explains why. People with Fibromyalgia should also stay away from all grains. According to some resources I have encountered SOME, not all, autoimmune illnesses can be reversed with careful steps like this.
Avatar n tn Hi I am suffering from fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis on my knees and wrists, (diverticular disease, asthma, restless leg syndrome (thanks to fibro) and possibly loads of other ailments and diseases (oh throid and another hernia, and narrowed esophagus) phew!
11072290 tn?1415066835 i have fibro and osteo and i cannot take any meds as i also schizophrenic and olanzapine poses a prob with regards to tremadol and gabapentin,i tried lyrica but doesn't help,i am slowly getting worse with the pain and my fingers are swelling to the point they look like sausages,i have a hiatus hernia and it causes heartburn but i can take ibroprufen for the pain even tho it does enhance the heartburn,i have and still am considering asking my G.
Avatar f tn net explains that gluten intolerance is the cause of multiple issues and not just Celiac. Fibromyalgia is one of the many things that gluten intolerance causes. I strongly suggest going to the site. Or, as an alternative, go to YouTube and use their search engine to look up "". There, you will find several videos posted. Look for the one that in the preview shows a chart.
1047234 tn?1253547296 I have Fibromyalgia and am RH negative, as well!
Avatar f tn Also you must rule out Candida (you can do a self-screening by doing your own saliva test for candida-just look it up and repeat twice at least), Hypothyroidism type 1 and 2 (ask for Free T3, Free T4 and Reverse T3 tests ), wheat and gluten intolerance (you may want to do an elimination diet starting with wheat and gluten). Lastly there's the possibility of low methylation.
Avatar f tn I am a Rh- mom, had 4 pregnancies + rhogam shots, was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. The problem was and still is mercury as well as gluten intolerance. If I stay clear from fish, treated dairy products and gluten my FM is gone by 90% and I am in remission, have been for almost 4 years. Rh- people have toxic reaction to mercury in any form? Had all my mercury filled teeth extracted.
922048 tn?1387946184 At age 28, after suffering for many years, I was diagnosed with lupus and fibromyalgia and put on low dose prednisone and anti-inflammatories. I only stayed on pred for a few months (5-10mg). Then at age 41, was diagnosed with Hashimoto's. Doctor said my thyroid function was fine, though. (But of course it was very much NOT fine. I was having tons of hypo symptoms!) Now after spending a fair amount of time reading up on AF, I am certain that I have pretty severe AF.
Avatar f tn lately, though, my pains have spread through my entire body... its not constant, but comes and goes through the day and is worst morning and night. I often wake int he night and my body is aching. dull aches down my entire legs, sharp pains in my wrists, hands, elbows, knees, ankles, under my feet. I always have very tight, aching neck, shoulders and back but i assumed this was normal also. dull aches in my lower back.
280418 tn?1306329510 she lives in new york her LLMD put her on a gluten free diet and she improved GREATLY. do you have trouble with not eating sweets? that's my downfall, keep me informed if you try the diet.............
Avatar f tn Well, I have Fibromyalgia, and most people with Fibromyalgia have to be concerned with possibly being diagnosed with MS--initially. Certain foods will still sometimes cause the painful parasthesia, but not always. I have eliminated the majority of the foods that I know cause this. If you have the functional bowel disorder that usually goes with MS, you will probably want to go gluten free and dairy free.
Avatar n tn Celiac used to be thought to be rare, but actually about 1 in 100 people have it and 97% remain undiagnosed because doctors are still not very unknowledgeable, blood tests are only about 77% accurate, etc. And, even more people have gluten sensitivity and intolerance, with just as many severe symptoms, but don't have full blown celiac. I lead a celiac/gluten intolerance support group and would be happy to answer any questions. I am not a medical professional, but I can share what I've learned.
Avatar f tn Some people say its related to yeast and or Gluten intolerance. I am sure there are variety of other things but I am sure I have both but the rinse has helped the best. I swear by it so much I wish that I could sell the product lol..
Avatar n tn have you been tested for celiac disease? a possible wheat gluten intolerance could be causing all the problems. if it is the case you'll have to change your diet which could be a pain but the symptoms will disappear in a matter of weeks. worth getting it looked into. I wish you luck.
Avatar n tn I had MRIs, cat scans, went to a nuerologist to diagnose whether I had MS and nothing was discovered. I went to a naturopath who then did a number of tests and came up with an intolerance of gluten and wheat. In fact, I went on a gluten and wheat free diet and almost within a week improved. It took about a year but the twitching went away completely and the tingling I may get very rarely if I have too much wheat.
Avatar n tn As a long term Hashimoto's patient and also suffering from long term gluten intolerance, I can tell you that the symptoms do decrease when on a gluten free diet. The gluten intolerance is an auto-immune response which sends out anti-bodies into the bloodstream, which of course, also go into the brain, giving rise to many Hashimoto type symptoms. With the body under attack, the immune system tries desperately to compensate, in a never ending 'chasing its tail' kind of impact.
Avatar n tn Many of us are gluten and dairy intolerant, whether it's Celiac or not. Gluten and dairy bind me up really bad and cause problems for a lot of people with IBS, regardless of which way their IBS swings.
Avatar f tn The tests all came back within normal range (whatever that is supposed to mean as we all have different normal’s), so he gave me prilosec and a steroid/lidocaine cream, which I used for a while, but I continued to struggle so he then sent me to Mayo Clinic of Scottsdale AZ where I went through another colonoscopy, endoscopy, transit study, defogram as well as pelvic floor dysfunction tests, I was tested for pylori, gluten intolerance …you name it they tested for it, I saw a rheumatologist, ga
Avatar f tn Hi mdawn , I have autoimmune dissorder and only just had it confirmed. I was pregnant in 1985 and again in 1988 and both times I had toxemia. It seems that everything I google bout me is thyroid related. Everything. Do you know for sure you have ms and raynauds. Must read about them. My kids are fine and I'm only just getting treated for something iv tried to prove for over twenty years. I hope you and the ill population of the world gets better.
