Apparently a person can be non celiac disease sensitive to gluten and this sensitivity can manifest itself as fibromylagia.

These are answers from the DIET section of this site. I have not tried this personal, but others swear by this. Also I have read that many people are avoiding the group of "night shade" plants which include...chocolate, tabacco, potatoes...etc! There is a more complete list on the DIET section. Personally I don't think I could follow THIS DIET!!!

Answer: There is a very good book called 'Living with Fibromyalgia' by Christine Craggs Hinton, and also a follow up book called 'the Fibromyalgia Healing Diet' I have found both these books to be really helpful, even though I have many intolerance's and cannot eat a lot of recipes in the second book.... I am definitely starting to feel better since changing my diet..... I have more energy and seem more able to cope with my pain...... The best thing I did since having this , and have lost weight too....... I think it is different for everyone but I have knocked out wheat amongst other things, and drink minimum 2 litres of water a day....... Good Luck.... =

Answer: I have been on a sugar-free/yeast-free diet for the past 4 months and it has helped a lot. I'm not in pain and I have a lot more energy. =

You may want to check out this site (if any dashes appear in the web link, it is because this site arbitrarily adds them so delete any dashes that may appear in the link that follows)....................................
............................................ Here is a quote about gluten intolerance (which can have symptoms very similar to fibromyalgia -- I was recently tested for Celiac disease but not non-celiac intolerance) ...............................

Gluten intolerance is a broad term which includes all kinds of sensitivity to Gluten. A small proportion of Gluten intolerant people will test positive to Celiac Disease test, and so are called Celiacs (~0.5% of the population).

But most Gluten sensitive people return negative or inconclusive results upon Celiac testing. The correct term for these people is Non-Celiac Gluten Sensitive (NCGS) and may be as many as ~15% of all people or 1 in 7.

The most accurate and effective way to identify NC

Sugar and gluten are not good for man and beast. Try stevia (at health food stores) for a sweetner . I try to avoid wheat and gluten products...stick to fresh or cook your own rather than those handy packaged meals...allergies and inflammation levels go down when you eliminate sugar, artificial sweeteners, and wheat ad wheat gluten in your diet.
