    I have developed food allergies and yeast overload in my gut.

    Have you developed any of this since having FM??

    For some of us, cleaning up diet & gut issues improves the fibro some.

    Which begs the question --- perhaps the food & gut issues are partly to blame for fibro suffering -- or is it a chicken/egg thing. Which came first????

    I've met a number of people with *mild* food allergies who, after reducing gut dysbiosis & rebuilding gut lining, find their food sensitivities are reduced. However, I'm not sure that if a person has, say, one of those anaphylactic-shock allergies (the peanut-butter kiss that kills), that yeast abatement alone will cure the food sensitivity.

    I believe my food sensitivities DID precede my fibro -- but I also think there is more than one cause of my own fibro pain. The recent thread, 'fibro and sugar' has a post about my food sensitivity struggles. (Tho' not primarily a candidiasis problem for me, as far as I know.)

    Best wishes.

    I don't think that comment was meant for you.

    Systemic yeast overgrowth and food sensitivities go hand in hand with illnesses like FMS. You can try to treat the yeast with anti-candida medication but it will probably come back. Most of us have to be on a low-carb, low or no sugar diet to help control it.
