swimcoachmamma & Lisa. I too have fibromyalgia ( diagnosed in 1990, when I never heard of it) I had an accident in 1986 and broke my back and neck, my bones healed well ( I was in the hospital for 28 days) but after returning to work 2 months later, I started aching all over, just couldn't stand the pain. The rheumy I went to told me that fibro often starts after trauma. Now I have also decided to go 'gluten-free" as my PCP thought it worth a try. For 4 years now my Vit D & B12 have been low. My PCP puts me on 50,000/wk Vit D and after 4 months it reaches high 30's, then I take 3000/day for a month and it plummets down to single digits and since even high 30's is too low ( according to my doc), she thinks it may be an absorption problem and some people do better without gluten, so I am giving it a go. We shall see any tips are appreciated.
