Diet and Fibromyalgia- Has a change in diet helped your fibro?

A change in diet has often recommended for conditions such as rheumatoid arthritis and multiple sclerosis. Looking at our page FibromyalgiaTalk it is also used by many people who have fibromyalgia.

So we thought we would use this opportunity to find out how useful a change in diet has been to our readers with fibro.

Firstly it would be great if you could take our poll below which asks “Has a change in diet helped your fibromyalgia?”

Once you have taken part in the poll we would love it if you might add your thoughts in the comment boxes below. It would be great if you could think about the following questions!

a) How long have you or a loved one been diagnosed with fibro? What are your main symptoms of fibromyalgia?
b) Have you tried diet as a treatment for fibromyalgia? If so which one?
c) How successful was the diet? What do you feel it achieve?
d) Would you recommend it to others?
e) Have you tried other natural treatments for fibromyalgia? If so which ones and how effective were they for you?

Many thanks in advance for your help.
