  •  Does removing gluten from the diet (2+ / 0-)

    help her symptoms? I'm not sure that the fibromyalgic response to gluten is literally an allergy; I don't remember whether celiac disease in primarily an allergic response. My fibro symptoms get much worse when I eat gluten foods; I discovered this when I was re-introducing carbs to my diet after low-carbing to lose the weight that my meds helped me put on. I don't know whether I have celiac disease -- I won't get tested because I suspect that if it's shown that I do, the insurance that (begrudgingly) pays for my fibro med bills will refuse to pay for anything.

    I think you said she's been on an elimination diet already, so you may have already tested this. But it's fairly common for gluten to be an issue with fibro. If you haven't already determined that it isn't, it might be worth doing.

    It's the Sausage Grinder of Snark: the Daily Show/Colbert Report spoiler (and chat) thread, Live at 11.
