I am Michelle and I have had fibromyalgia for years. I read somewhere on this site that a woman taking the ten day program actually had a remission of all of her symptoms by the 8th day.
I'd be interested in hearing from others who had/have fibromyalgia and their experiences in any symptom alleviation since beginning this program. Particularly, as I have been a vegan for about 4 or 5 months and still have most of my symptoms. I am about to start this program and hope that the emphasis on the main starches makes the difference.
Anyway - I sure would love to hear from other fibro folks on the program.

I find so may who are diagnosed with it have such totally different experiences of it. For instance, I am never out of a flare - I always have pain and it increases with changes in barometric pressure. I know others that are effected by weather too, but that is not true of the majority of people I have met. Nor am I bothered with anxiety or depression - thought the fatigue aspect is huge. I can't imagine having anxiety & depression on top of the pain, that would be so devastating!
I have noticed since beginning this WOE about a month ago a huge change in my sleep patterns - I used to have terrible insomnia, which is now for weeks seemingly a thing of the past. This helps with the fatigue aspect, but unlike others here that have seen their symptoms disappear, I haven't had any change in the pain levels.
None-the-less, I appreciate people checking in on this subject because I am learning a lot about how other people are coping and I am so impressed that people seem to have found things that have worked for them. As for eating this way, it has improved things in other areas for me besides the fibro - so even if it's not making much of a dent for me in that, I personally would NEVER GO BACK to SAD
