Dairy Free

Ok so I am the type of person who jumps on ban wagons!
I am always looking for a cure! (There is none by the way) So yesterday I came across a web site that said that Firbromyalgia is an allergic reaction to dairy. They have a 2 week trail of NO DAIRY what so ever & you will start to feel better. Has anyone ever heard of this?? I guess I am going to try this & let you all know what the out come is but I was curious to know if anyone has heard of this topic

Thanks again for all your help & support

Keep your fingers crossed if this is true it could change everything!!!

Re: Dairy Free

Is it dairy free that is the key or Lactose free? There is a difference as there are many foods high in lactose that are not dairy items, for example Mushrooms. I posted on one of the other boards recently regarding my experiences with Lactose Intolerance, the issues, testing, and my recovery. You can click on my name and see other posts and it should take you to my list of posts. I do want to say that often IBS is also seen in FMS. If you have GI symptoms, then a Gastroenterologist may be in your future. I suffered many years from Lactose problems and I almost immediately saw improvement. Like I said, I wrote quite a long post of my experiences, so take a look. I do hope you find it informative.

Re: Dairy Free

Firbromyalgia is an allergic reaction to dairy. They have a 2 week trail of NO DAIRY .

OK, my suspicion hairs are tingling. The first statement is unfounded and made even more irresponsible paired with the second.

Maybe you ARE dairy intolerant try your own trial but stay away from them!!!

Re: Dairy Free

HI Fibrogirl - I'd be really interested to hear how you get on - I'm doing my best to reduce/eliminate sugar - soooooooo hard - I have a sneaky feeling that not too far in the distant future I'll be eliminating/reducing dairy too. There is so much info out there and then so many contradictions - we just have to try and see for ourselves and keep others posted on progress

Goldyfm - will be clicking on your posts - thank you

Re: Dairy Free

I'm new here...but I give you my best wishes!!

I've had fibro for 30 years. It got really bad about 10-15 years ago after I had to have chemo. Although I grew up on a commercial dairy (produced milk), I have been dairy free for almost ten years (which makes me a traitor to my family's business of my childhood -- HA). It has indeed helped some but it has not cured it. (At that time, I also changed significantly my entire diet, and I have improved slowly but surely over the years...but still have fibro in varying degrees at varying times.) However, we are all unique individuals, so I'm here hoping going dairy-free helps you tremendously!!

Blessings!!

Re: Dairy Free

There is a health food store in my community that swears going vegan is the way to go. The owner is a raw vegetablist. Hmmmmm....She says many with fibro have been helped and changed by changing their diet lifestyles. I am wondering if an allergy and fibromyalgia may have overlapping symptoms. I don't think I have an allergy, because wouldn't I have had pain as a child eating dairy? How is it working for you?
