Fibromyalgia and Histamine Intolerance: One Patient’s Experience

Many people haven’t connected histamine with fibromyalgia or chronic fatigue syndrome but it’s been a suspected player for over twenty years. The first study suggesting overactive mast cells were pumping high levels of histamine into FM patients bodies goes back to 1990.  Greatly increased levels of mast cells in the skin of every FM patient tested in a 2010 Spanish FM findingand then a small but successful  NIH funded mast cell blocking FM study featuring ketiotifen suggested the theory might have legs. One patient in the trial remarked that she was pain free for the first time in years.
