Have any of you read anything regarding the use of cleaning products and fibro? Women are the majority with fibro, but we are also the ones who use thousands of household cleaning products yearly. They all have warning labels about skin, eye contact and ingeston, but most of us just grab the cleaners and rags and go at it. Could this be why few men suffer from all our problems? A friend of my sisters has been told by doctors that her immune system is almost gone due to household cleaners. My daughter has developed some of the same symptoms I have but has not been diagnosed with fibro, yet her problems started when she first got married and moved into a rental house. The owners were chain smokers and my dau spent days with bleach and other cleaners on every wall in that house. They only lived there a short time before they bought their own house but the damage was already done. Now she has horrible reactions to bug bites ,especially mosquitos. Big half dollar size knots pop up. She now has to wear pants, socks and long sleeves when she works outside. Any kind of insectcide sets off highs and lows in her temperment. Bleach the same way. So could this horrible curse we suffer from come from the combined use of the same products that are suppose to help protect us?
