Curious to know if others who are diagnosed with fibromyalgia also have allergies / sensitivities?

      Loads. Known allergic to NSAIDS and morphine. I have angioedema and urticaria. I have had them since I was a teenager. I am prescribed 360mg fexofenadine daily. I have been referred to the consultant immunologist. I will be tested on like I am a science project.

      I'm allergic to penicillin, codeine, aspirin, liquid milk, watermelon and tree nuts and THC and have been for most of my life. I also have year round allergies to outdoor plants but not grass. My fibro flares with all of these.

      I have intolerance to chocolate, white sugar and other food. They make my stomach upset and give me a headache but I love chocolate so I get a headache most of the days 🤣🤣🤣

        @CrazyMeerkat have you tried the chocolate substitute Carob. You can cook with it and buy candy from some companies.

      I have a runny itchy nose and pruritus and I take anti histamines regularly. I am very sensitive to caffeine, weather, noise, smells and I have IBS. I can barely tolerate some clothes, particularly underwear.

      I toss and turn for at least 20 minutes before I get sort of comfortable in bed. I am like the princess and the pea with 18 mattresses! My temperature comfort Range is like 68 to 72 degrees. I think I Could be sensitive!!! Oh yes, I also have to cut all tags off my clothes.

      I have loads of allergies lol. Thought they were not related but maybe they are.

      Allergies to all milk products and seasonal outside allergies, take Claritin and Flonase daily.

      oh for sure. i think there's a lot of crossover between fibro and mcas, which is basically just your body having allergic reactions all the time for unknown reasons. so that's always a good thing to look into. i have particular sensitivity to peppermint, caffeine, and the sun, so mine are weirdly specific lol

      I do for sure. I'm on anti histamines all year round. I believe it's quite common to have this 'lovely' combination!!!!!

        @Nalabird I’ve been thinking about it a lot lately as my symptoms are always a lot worse when I’ve eaten something that doesn’t agree with me! My problem is I can’t figure out what it is that I’m reacting to as it’s not the common things such as eggs, milk, nuts etc. What do you take antihistamines for?

          @Natz I have this problem too. Started doing Activia as a probiotic. Helped out ALOT. I also looked into inflammatory causing foods to kind of see what could cause my stomach to get so "angry". I also highly recommend food journaling. You don't have to right down tiny details, but if you find a connection with foods go smaller til you find the ingredients alike.

          @Natz I have food colouring intolerances which I had highlighted when I was a child, however 2 of my meds contain the 1 colour E110 sunset yellow. The other is E102 tartrazine. I also react to perfumes/aftershaves, scented toiletries & alot of make up products. Then there's grass & tree pollen (hay fever). Quite a list seeing it typed out!!!
