Food intolerances are one of those things that we know goes along with fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue syndrome but that really hasn't been researched. The food that seems to come up the most often is gluten, which is found in wheat and several other common grains.
A sensitivity to such a common food, and even the possibility of it, leads to a lot of questions. Will going gluten free will help alleviate their symptoms? What can and can't you eat? Why is a food that's harmless to most people causing problems for you?
To help you find answers, I've turned to my About.com colleague Jane Anderson, Guide to Celiac Disease. You'll find my compilation of her articles that I believe are most relevant to us here:
I find the new research especially interesting - doctors are finally seeing that gluten sensitivity can cause neurological problems. That's something many of us (me included) have learned from experience.
