    Hello everyone. I started taking bromelain on Fri. because I heard it may be good for inflammation. I have CFS?FMS. WEll on Sun.(it is now WEd) I had a major flare up of excruciationg pain! Could it be the Bromelain, or just a flare. anyone out there that had an 'adverse reaction to Bromelain? This is my worst flare up on months. Also I would like to point out that I have had Flare ups from other various herbs and immune modulators in the past. I will stop the Bromelain tommorrow and see how it goes. Funny how I am even sensitive too herbs and supplements. I also take B-12, A multi vit, and flax oil and xanax to sleep. Any information would be appreciatied! Thanks all!! be well....ww68

    I have only taken if a few times but I was wondering too, I do have really nice successful bowel habits from it tho. That is such a nice thing when the opposite is always the norm. Does the bromelain cause the herxing??? I would not think so, someone will come along with the info.
