If you have fibromyalgia, you’ve probably wondered if there are ways to modify your diet to improve symptoms such as fatigue and muscle pain. Research hasn’t shown that there are specific foods that all fibromyalgia patients should avoid or add to their diets. But it may still be worthwhile to take a closer look at how foods impact the way you feel.

There aren’t many good studies that have looked at how diet can affect fibromyalgia symptoms. A lot of people with fibromyalgia have sensitivities to particular foods, but it varies from person to person,” Lipton tells WebMD. “They might be sensitive to MSG, certain preservatives, eggs, gluten, dairy, or other common allergens.”

A good way to start identifying the foods that may aggravate your symptoms, Lipton and other experts say, is keeping a daily food journal.

Below are mentioned some diets that may help you to cope with fibromyalgia symptoms. Take a look at all of these and select the most suitable one for yourself. Also let us know in the comments below which one you going to try out today.

Bottom line

An eating strategy that works for one person with fibromyalgia may not work for another. For example, some people may be sensitive to gluten, while others may be sensitive to nightshade vegetables or dairy. If you have fibromyalgia-related bowel problems, you may need to eat more fiber, rebalance your gut flora with probiotics, or follow a low-FODMAP diet or elimination diet.

When trying new recipes, pay attention to how your body responds. Keep a food diary to help you determine which foods relieve your symptoms and which foods trigger them. Work with your doctor or a dietitian to help you lose weight or create an eating plan specific to your situation.
