Metal allergy may trigger fibromylagia
Metal allergy was found to be frequent among fibromyalgia sufferers. A small scale study has been just been published which has explored this. All patients tested positive to at least one metal using MELISA testing. Reducing metal exposure, by replacing dental restorations led to measurable health improvements and all patients reported subjective health improvement. This suggests that metal-induced inflammation might be an important risk factor in a subset of patients with fibromyalgia.
