11 years ago (at age 15) I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, Scoliosis and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. My symptoms went through phases and sometimes you wouldn't believe I was ill yet other days I couldn't raise myself from bed. 2 years ago I was diagnosed with Raised Tryptase levels which essentially causes me to go into anaphylactic shock spontaniously requiring adrennaline to open up my airways. 8 months ago I started developing abcesses on my face, anti-biotics didn't help at all and I required surgery twice, with two near misses.
5 months ago, a dear friend of mine convinced to try Paleo for just two weeks (I had a low grain intake anyway so my sugar cravings were never going to be too bad). After two weeks I had more energy, no more peaks and trophs in energy, better sleep, less panic attacks, reduced pain, less minor allergic reactions and my body starting telling me what it needed. This was enough to get me on board!
Now that I'm 5 months in, I've lost 30 pounds, gained much leaner more effective muscles, my hair breaks less, I've had to buy nail cutters as they don't break at all, I've stopped having panic attacks, I'm much happier, I'm less bloated, I'm more motivated and my focus has improved ten fold.
But all of these are just bonuses compared to main improvement, since going Paleo I have not suffered a single Fibromyalgia symptom. No insomnia, no bloating, and the biggest feat of all, no muscle aches (except as expected post workout)!!
