Fluoride Causes Fibromyalgia

As far as I know, there have been no formal studies linking fluoride exposure to fibromyalgia, however emerging data on the Internet, independent research and message board contributors everywhere show that the link is undeniable, and that in fact Fluoride itself may be the sole cause of Fibromyalgia.

Fibromyalgia affects mostly woman, however studies have also shown that Gulf War veterans are more likely to have chronic fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia syndrome. This is possibly from vaccinations, pesticides (which often contain fluoride) and Sarin nerve gas that could all have been a source of fluoride overload.

Lets explore the key symptoms of Fibromyalgia, and how they relate to fluoride:

Fibro SymptomsHow they relate to Fluoride
Body AchesA 1985 Study showed that body aches were completely gone when sufferers were administered fluoride free water.  Fluoride also causes a magnesium deficiency, which is associated with body aches
Specific tender sites on body Fluoride symptoms include muscle weakness and muscle spasms.  These symptoms were first recognized in the 1930's aluminum workers.  It is not known what causes these tender spots near the joints, however I think there's a good chance that its fluoride.  Fluoride concentrates in spongy soft tissue (such as organs and muscles).
Feel worse upon wakingThis is a documented fluoride symptom.  It could have to do with several issues including the way fluoride effects Serotonin & Melatonin, thyroid and your nervous system.
Tiredness/Chronic FatigueThis is also a documented symptom of fluoride, and can even be an early sign of Skeletal fluorosis or an allergy or hypersensitivity to fluoride.  It can also be that fluoridated melatonin (derived from fluoridated serotonin) is still circulating upon waking, and it is telling your brain that you want to go back to sleep even though your body is well rested.  Fluoride can also decrease Melatonin altogether by calcifying the Pinal Gland, causing you to not get a good night's sleep.
Poor Circulation, swelling of hands & feet, Tingling & numbness, Restless legs These are all documented symptoms of fluoride, and may be caused or worsened by a magnesium deficiency (which is caused by fluoride) and damage to your nervous system
IrritabilityThis is one of the first symptoms of fluoride overload, and can happen 5 to 30 minutes after eating or drinking too much of it.  Whenever my husband or I mistakenly get too much fluoride from eating out or eating something we haven't tested to be safe, we both get extremely irritable.  We get uncomfortable in our clothes and skin, noises and voices seem louder then usual and we both bicker with each other for no reason at all.  Have you ever had a fight with someone or said something you didn't mean and wonder why you did that later that day?  It was probably from too much fluoride.
DepressionFluoride can attach to serotonin, making it inactive and causing depression.  Chronic pain caused by fluoride can also lead to a further depletion of serotonin. 
HeadachesHeadache is one of the first symptoms of fluoride poisoning, and may or may not occur along side with gastrointestinal distress, nausea and vomiting
Poor concentration/ memoryFluoride has been linked to lower iq's in children, ADD, learning disabilities, Alzheimer's and more. 
Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), GERDBoth fluoride and tea (which is very high in fluoride) have been linked to this Syndrome.  Professor A.K. Susheela says that by avoiding fluoride, IBS symptoms will clear in 15 days. I have also read many message board and forum posts linking fluoride/tea to IBS.
Need to urinate frequentlyBoth fluoride and chronic fatigue have been linked to this symptom.  Fluoride can irritate the lining of the bladder.
Painful PeriodsBy interfering with Melatonin and Iodine (both which control estrogen), fluoride can lead to estrogen dominance which has been linked to PMS and painful periods.  Fluoride can also effect your adrenal glands, causing further hormone problems.
Myofascial pain syndromeFluoride can cause connective tissue disorders and inflammation, all which is thought to be the cause of myofascial pain.  General Fatigue and Stomach irritations are also posible causes of this disorder; both can be caused by fluoride.
AnxietyAnxiety, both General, OCD and Panic Attacks are major symptoms of fluoride, even at small levels.
TMJThis was one of the worst fluoride symptoms for me that caused chronic pain on a day to day basis.  Nothing would help; not even prescription Ibuprofen.  Sometimes it hurt so bad it brought me to tears.  My TMJ is 95% better now that I have learned how to block fluoride.
Fibrocystic Breast Disease and Endometriosis Fluoride causes breast cancer and breast disease in several ways: Click here for more info
Reproductive IssuesFluoride also causes many reproductive issues:  Click here for more info
Reduced LibidoFluoride can reduce your libido by causing adrenal fatigue and lowering your thyroid function.  It's hard to feel feisty when you don't feel good.
Carpal TunnelThis was also a major symptom for me, and is linked to thyroid disorders, which are caused by fluoride.
OsteoporosisThere are many, many studies linking fluoride to osteoporosis, arthritis and bone cancer.
Yeast InfectionsFluoride causes damage to your intestines and kills good bacteria, which can lead to chronic candida infections and yeast infections.
HypoglycemiaFluoride can cause hypoglycemia in many ways, including adrenal fatigue, impact on insulin, allergic responses and interference with serotonin, hormones and vitamin and mineral absorption.
