Fibromyalgia and your diet

Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia and your diet


Avatar m tn People with eating disorders, kidney diseases, cancer, autoiimmune diseases, and anemia should not try this diet. A fibromyalgia detox diet means avoiding cheese, transfat, caffeine, chocolates, candies, alcohol, processed meats and restricting use of salt, sugar and fats. Medicines can be usually taken while on detox diet. Before discontinuing any medication consult your local health care provider. Hope it helps. Take care and best luck!
4861077 tn?1360159739 This may not have anything to do with the fibromyalgia and may be due to carpal tunnel or tendon problems. If you work and have a repetitive job, your hand and wrist problems may be because of that. Your doctor will be able to check out your hands and determine whether nerve conduction tests would be appropriate to find out if there is any carpal tunnel problems.
Avatar m tn Firstly I will advise you to take a good sleep. Take plenty of fruits and vegetables in your diet. Drink plenty of water every day. Avoid processed foods like white bread, junk food etc. and have whole grain foods. Exercise daily for 30-40 minutes. It will help in burning your calories and alleviating depressive symptoms if any. Consult a doctor and start a multivitamin/mineral supplement as nutritional deficiencies can also cause body aches and muscle aches.
Avatar m tn I have fibro also... the good news is that after 18 has gone into remission. IT CAN go into remission. As mahd said you have to take it easy on how much you do as far stress goes. Pace yourself. Calcium supplement and diet help emensly. Try Not to "own" the label of "fibromyalgia" aceptance to the best of your ability is key. Best to you.
Avatar n tn Because they did this in so many different ways I can't tell you which is better, but I can tell you that a stronger body and a stronger more balanced immune system and a diet loaded with the most important nutrients and antioxidants and minus the most common foods associated with inflammation and fatigue can only help. I would suggest that you begin by reading; by now there are many books on fibromyalgia.
710094 tn?1229312306 Also, prior to adding any form of herbal, homeopathic or vitamins to your diet please check with your physician. Some can have serious interactions with prescribed medications or other over-the-counter drugs. I hope you are feeling better soon. Take care.
Avatar n tn He tested my blood again and told me that Fibromyalgia is a DX by exclusion and he did not rule out that I had it. I have read a lot about it and I don't have the fatigue that I have read so much about. Yes I am not full of energy at all times but I am not nodding off during the day and I don't have pain all over my body. I was curious to see what you think as I have seen that you have been helpful and informative to others in the past.
Avatar m tn Following a good organic diet for borth migraine and fibromyalgia helps and avoiding stress. I have blackout shades in my home and NO FLOURESCENT BULBS!!! Warm baths are great. I've been watching some research at Stanford and hoping for success there. It's non narcotic and inexpensive. You can catch a youtube film about it by looking up stanford fibromyalgia. Good luck.
Avatar f tn They can eliminate all the other rheumatoid and autoimmune disorders and confirm a fibromyalgia diagnosis. They will also be able to prescribe meds that will effectively treat your symptoms. Don't give up until you find the combo that works right for you. I've had fibro my whole life and have had to fight to get any relief. Hot baths and heating pads are my best friends.
Avatar f tn Having been through a very similar experience in my life in the past, I do understand and feel your suffering. The Universe blessed me with the Energy and Wisdom to overcome all my issues and more! Now I try to help others. Stay in touch! Blessings.
Avatar n tn I hope you are doing better now but if now try a strict diet and lots of water, lemon, green drinks, veggie salads, NO WHEAT! Let me know how you are if you get this.
Avatar m tn I certainly will take your suggestions and talk to my family doctor. Thanks so much. I appreciate your taking your time to respond. Gran.
Avatar f tn I have Fibromyalgia and can only work three days a week with days in between and have to sleep 12 hours and two short naps during the days off. This year if I do too much during one day, my upper back spasms into a neck/shoulder pain spasm and causes migraine, and I am bedridden. The only thing that provides relief is a hot bath and codeine and 2 muscle relaxants and one gravol. It has only been that bad for one year.
Avatar m tn and my teeth started falling, E-cod (for Omega 3 and Vit E), Rusvostatin (Cholesterol increases as a gift of fibromyalgia) Co-Q10 (antioxidant and energizing cells), Thyroxine (hyerthyroid another gift), Cobadex forte (multivitamine). I am active and leading normal life without pains. I study and experiment too. I feel that we should maintain good level of vitamins so that proper environment is there for glads to act and signal properly. Recently I found that my Potassium level has gone up.
Avatar m tn My age is almost 45, and I'm suffering from various hbv related illnesses like chronic kidney disease, neuropathy, and various debilitating muscle and skeletal problems. In addition to this, I remember my uncle/brother of my mom, died when he was about 50 years old some 24 years ago from hepatitis, not sure which, but since I'm from Africa, most probably it was hepB. Despite getting modern hospital treatment, he died. After learning about the disease now, I think he might have died of hcc.

Avatar f tn I was recently told by someone that works with fibromyalgia patients that a gluten free diet could lessen my symptoms. Just trying to figure out what has or not has gluten has been confusing and a bit discouraging. But I am willing to try it if it works. Has anyone tried it? What were your results?
Avatar f tn This is not a question, but sum info that may help u all!!!! *hugs* Kent Holtorf, MD for Holtorf Medical Group Center for Endocrine, Neurological and Infection Related Illness in Torrance CA said "we're at the point now where we know diet plays a role in this disease---it's just not the same diet for everybody. And not everybody is helped in the same way".

3202069 tn?1345408082 I go to an Integrative doctor Steve Windley. I would say that Diet and exercise help the most. Stretching is very important. My doctor told me that alot of Carbs cause the body to be inflamed. I also know that soda causes me to hurt all over. I get tightness in my legs and calves. I used to have alot of shoulder pain. I have tried many types of medicine to help with the pain. I take a muscle relaxer in the evening at times to help me sleep.
Avatar f tn For a very long time we both thought we had Fibromyalgia and were both officially diagnosed by several different doctors. Anyone else out there have the same thing happen?
Avatar n tn Hey frog1703, Welcome to the forum. Ask your doctor to have your Tartaric Acid levels tested. It is usually very elevated in in most FMS patients that experience significant muscle and joint pain. Elevated PMS pain is often indicative of high Tartaric acid levels as well. Tartaric acid interferes with the Krebs cycle which is your major energy producing cycle and is a muscle toxin. Also, if your doctor is not a LLMD (lyme literate medical doctor) do a search and find one asap!
Avatar f tn I don't know much about Fibromyalgia, but most of those symptoms that you're having right now are due to becoming hypo. I would talk to your endo about your concerns, and hopefully they can answer regarding radiation and Fibro.
Avatar f tn Stay away from stress and take a nutritious diet. This will help in coping with fibromyalgia and make your skin clearer. Treatment for acne includes topical and oral antibiotics, topical retinoid, hormonal therapy, dermabrasion and laser resurfacing. You should discuss these treatment options with your dermatologist. For accurate diagnosis see a dermatologist .I hope it helps. Take care and good luck!
Avatar f tn There is no cure for fibromyalgia and management consists of finding an effective combination of lifestyle adjustments, such as regular exercise and healthy diet, and medication therapy. Do consult your doctor before taking any medication. I hope it helps. Good luck!
3191241 tn?1345035981 Seeking practical tips from your doctor for boosting your sex life can be helpful. Discuss your concerns with your doctor. I hope it helps. Best luck and regards!
Avatar n tn How do you sleep at night and are there particular times of the day that you feel drained? What are your relationships like, family, friends, bf ? What is your typical diet, your favorite foods and are you able to do any physical activity, such as walking, hiking, yoga, swimming etc? Do you often feel stressed or anxious? Any injuries, surgeries or serious illnesses in the past? Sorry about the... 20 questions, but I think it will be helpful if you can answer them.
675329 tn?1297291978 They will be able to advise you of better ways to control and manage your pain. Not to discount your current Dr., but from the meds you've tried, it seems like you may be searching in the wrong direction. Best of luck!
