Fibromyalgia Suggestions?

Question for readers: Have any of you cured or treated fibromyalgia with diet, supplements, etc.? What worked? What didn't? This is not a rhetorical question--I have an idea for a fibromyalgia diet, and the research I've done so far is encouraging, but I'd like a reality check. A friend of mine is suffering terribly and I'd like to help her.

I've listened a lot to Jorge Flechas and is intrigued of his claims for iodine against fibromyalgia...

I have no personal experience since I've avoided it so far.

Thanks for the comment, smgj. I'll watch the video when I get home. I've read that hypothyroid is common among fibromyalgia sufferers; your comment gives me another idea.

I am type 11 diabetic, low thyroid and have fibromyalgic pains throat/neck/chest/aching arms along with stiff neck. High carb (ice cream cone, chocolate) bring on spasms where I can't breathe or move for about 20 minutes. Not binging on carbs helps. I take desiccated thyroid and other bioidentical hormones, but no medications for diabetes other than trying to avoid sugar and starch.

Thanks for your input. If I may ask, do you also get these symptoms when you eat a potato? Or grains?
