joints/skeletal/fibromyalgia, women's issues

For seven years while I was either pregnant or nursing, I drank huge amounts of water. I thought my home filter took out the fluoride, and my town fluoridated the water an average of 1.5 ppm. I went into early menopause and developed joint pain--both for unknown reasons. I believe fluoride contributed to both. I've since started drinking fluoride-free bottled water and my joint pain has gone away.
