It can take years to get fibromyalgia diagnosed, and in that time the condition can progress quite a bit. When chasing the symptoms and trying to figure out what is going on, the treatments can be making different systems in your body worse, such as your gut.

There are a lot of factors involved in fibro, but the gut does play quite a big role in the severity of symptoms. In fact, the gut is 1 of the 4 pillars of health that Dr. Rodger Murphree focuses on with fibro patients.
