Fibromyalgia (FM) patients suffer from chronic overlapping symptoms including widespread pain, fatigue, cognitive dysfunction and sleep problems, which are thought to be related to central sensitization [1]. To date, no treatment alone provides extensive symptom relief, which leads patients to wonder whether or not diet, as something directly in their control, could be modulated to lead to improvement. Currently, there is accumulating evidence that diet may be contributing to symptoms in FM, with strong biological plausibility for how specific dietary components may be leading to abnormal glutamatergic neurotransmission, perpetuating the process of central sensitization
