2. Digestive Distress Can Be an Early Warning Sign

You may have noticed that tummy troubles show up when your fibro symptoms flare and that’s no coincidence. IBS affects around 70% of fibro patients and often precedes a fibro diagnosis. The two conditions may have a common cause since brain scans have shown that both sets of patients have more intense pain responses, but you’ll likely need a specific treatment approach for each. Focus on relaxing your digestive tract by eliminating notoriously irritating foods (caffeine and cruciferous veggies top the list), and adding helpful medication or natural supplements – that won’t interfere with your fibro treatment.
