  • I find that I react to almost as many of the Natural Alternatives as well. So every substance is trial and error. For example, the entire process of doing laundry hits me hard - the dirty clothes, the just washed (regardless of what I wash with), the dried clean clothes - washing my face and hands after each steps helps somewhat. Stupid Fibro.
  • I can't even go down the detergent aisle at the grocery store without holding my breath. I had to switch to using diluted vinegar to clean my house. I had worked in the fragrance industry my whole adult life and had to leave a very good paying job because I became so sensitive to the fragrances. Also, new construction smells bother me as do getting behind cars that smell like exhaust. It is a terrible symptom of fibro I believe. I am also very sensitive to medications. I can hardly tolerate any and even some herbal supplements I have trouble with. I am going to be in trouble as I get older because I am afraid I won't be able to take meds that I may need. I also am sensitive to gluten and dairy as well as artificial sweeteners. Can't touch any of those things or they start up a heart arrithymia.
