Hi, I wondered if anyone has ever suspected NCGS (Non-Coeliac Gluten Sensitivity) as the cause, or as A cause, of their Fibro. Mine has flared up recently, after I've been on a much healthier diet than I have in years, and I'm baffled by this. Why would I get sorer and tireder while IMPROVING my diet? The only thing I could think of as having changed was I am now eating much more (whole) wheat. When I'm eating junk it tends to be sweeties & ice cream, neither of which contain wheat, so I'm wondering if there is a potential relationship. I do have IBS and fibre can be a bit irritant, but I wouldn't say wheat, per se, makes my IBS worse, although it does seem to contribute to runny guts!
Have any of you ever tried a gluten-free diet? Did it help? Did it cure you? (I wish...) Or have any of you read any good research suggesting gluten/ wheat might be a problem in Fibro? Any info or feedback most welcome. Thanks!
P.S. I did read somewhere, although can't remember where now, that NCGS is one of the suspects in fibromyalgia, so I assume there is some research which suggests it could be a/the culprit. I know that in NCGS, proteins from the wheat get into the bloodstream and cause inflammation, so it's not such a stretch that it could be causing or contributing to fibro.
