Craving for something salty,fibro-related?

Since quitting birth control pills (I figured, maybe they are worsening my symptoms) I've been having so much pain all over, even my eyes and wrists hurt! I've even been considering getting a wheelchair, or at least a shower stool. Hurts so much to stand.

Anyways, here's my question: do any of you find yourself craving for salty foods? I feel sick if I haven't eaten any heated food (like salty soup or something) and I feel like I've got to have some. Just wondering whether these food cravings are related to Fibro?

Re: Craving for something salty,fibro-related?

I used to crave sweets all the time, and then I stopped consuming wheat, white sugar and chocolate. The cravings went away within days. I've never craved salty snacks or food; I in fact use very little salt in my cooking and never add salt to my food. I think that's just an individual's nature - you're either a "sweet" or a "salt" person I'm told. I don't think its got anything to do with fibro.
