I'm sure I read somewhere that bio yoghurt is easier to digest than other dairy products. But I have no idea where...sorry! I suppose you could always try it and see how it makes you feel?

I have salicylate intolerance but it was diagnosed before the fibro was diagnosed so I'm not sure that the two are related. This problem gives me a lot of trouble with my sinuses.

I already don't eat much wheat as I'm in two minds as to whether that makes my sinuses worse too.

I'm now trying to cut down on dairy products to see if that helps with my sinuses, but I haven't quite managed to give up cheese yet :-? :roll: :mrgreen:

Intolerances/hypersensitivity to various things is a known associated problem with FM, and can affect us in very different ways. If you think you may have an issue with something, it is advisable to talk to your GP or a dietitian about it before starting to cut out/change things diet~wise, just to be sure that it is a suitable approach for you to try.

Wrt to wheat and dairy, I've tried cutting them out/swapping to alternatives a number of times over the years, but each time it has made absolutely no difference to how things feel FM~wise. The only thing I did notice was that the malty, seedy, granary type breads make a slight difference to my IBS {in a good way} by seeming to help reduce the amount of bloating experienced.

I've had IBS for 8 years before getting fibro, and no change happened to the IBS when the fibro came.

I'm also not good with co-codamol, they give me awful headaches (Paramol for some reason doesn't, my pain killer of choice when I take some).

Within a week of starting on my new tablets for the fibro though, I noticed a change in my tum. I can now eat vegetables and fruit that I haven't been able to eat for 8 years! Only thing I still get a reaction to is garlic. Garlic is still a massive no-go.

Oh I see. I get migraines here and there. They're were worse and more often when I was on birth control. Now they're much easier to deal with and not very often.
I am a fibro fighter not a fibro sufferer. I will keep fighting from the minute I get up til the minute I go to bed.
