Celiac symptoms in patients with fibromyalgia: a cross-sectional study.

By Juan Miguel García-Leiva, et al.

Abstract:

Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain syndrome associated with numerous somatic symptoms including gastrointestinal manifestations of nonspecific nature. Celiac disease and nongluten sensitivity frequently evolve in adults with gastrointestinal and extraintestinal symptoms similar to those found among patients with fibromyalgia.

The objective of the present study was to evaluate the presence of celiac-type symptoms among patients with fibromyalgia in comparison with healthy subjects and with those experienced by adult celiac patients and subjects with gluten sensitivity.

A list of typical celiac-type symptoms was developed, comparing the frequency of presentation of these symptoms between patients with fibromyalgia (N = 178) and healthy subjects (N = 131), in addition to those of celiac patients and gluten-sensitive patients reported in the literature.
  • The frequency of presentation of every celiac-type symptom, excepting anemia, was significantly higher among patients with fibromyalgia compared to controls (p < 0.0001).

  • Regarding the existing data in the literature, the prevalence of fatigue, depression, cognitive symptoms and cutaneous lesions predominated among patients with fibromyalgia,

  • whereas the prevalence of gastrointestinal symptoms was higher among patients with fibromyalgia compared to gluten-sensitive patients and was similar among patients with fibromyalgia and celiac disease patient.

The symptomatological similarity of both pathologies, especially gastrointestinal symptoms, suggests that at least a subgroup of patients with fibromyalgia could experience subclinical celiac disease or nonceliac gluten intolerance.

Celiac Symptoms in Fibromyalgia Patients

Every piece of research that leads to a clearer understanding of fibromyalgia is a step in the right direction. For many years I suffered with this disease. No matter what I tried the debilitating pain, fatigue, insomnia, "fibro fog," irritable bowel syndrome and other symptoms intensified. Finally, unable to look after my home or myself, I found the unique mind/body/spirit wellness work of Joy of Healing. Because of their special energy work, a healthy diet and exercise program designed to meet my specific needs along with help to deal with the unresolved issues in my life I am well — pain and prescription free. My fibromyalgia has been in remission for more than thirteen years.
Cutting back on processed foods, and eliminating as much of the sugar, wheat and dairy as was possible from my diet certainly helped. For those who are still suffering, research everything including alternative and complementary approaches along with the medical. You know what you are feeling and no one knows your body better than you.
