Avatar m tn I too suffer from fibromyalgia for past three years. I am hydrocortison 10mg morning+5 mg after lunch and 5 mg after supper (before sleep....it gives good sleep).

710094 tn?1229312306 First of all believe in the power of your mind to heal your body . I recommend the book "The magic of believing" , tell yourself that you are getting better . Your cognitive difficulty is known as fibrofog or brainfog . Less blood could be flowing to your brain and/or it is overwhelmed by pain signals . Take omega 3 fish and flax oils and gingko biloba along with good b vitamins / multivitamins . Brain fog is common in chronic pain conditions .
Avatar f tn I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis and was wondering if anyone knows of any good books about the condition. From reading posts it seems like diet and other things can affect thyroid. Still searching for a doctor who will address my symptoms despite my "normal" values. Until then I want/need to do what I can to feel better. Any book recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
5586759 tn?1370438872 I've had Fibromyalgia since I was a teenager and I have gone through one pregnancy already, but at the time I hadn't been diagnosed properly for the ailments that I have. It's now round two, I am pregnant again, and I'm wondering about good suggestions to help maintain lower levels of pain. Last time I was put on bed rest at 8 1/2 months and that was torture for my sciatica nerve. I'm trying to stay active and strong. I've been going through physical therapy and things of that nature.
Avatar n tn Since I've had Fibromyalgia, I have constant bursitis in my greater trocanter (hip bursa) as well as a constant inflammation of my SI joints. I receive shots in my hips every few months, sometimes monthly. I do the exercises given to me by my DO, however, I have only short term relief from the shots. I apply ice. I still have the bursitis and it won't go away. I never had any hip injuries prior or since to cause bursitis. Does anyone else have recurrent bursitis with their Fibromyalgia?
Avatar n tn I would look into the gaps diet which is based on the specific carbohydrate diet. Just do a search. They offer a descent list I have the book that does not contain the intro diet, however, I would avoid also the juice and fruits for a month per year from the onset of the symptoms of your condition plus 3. For example, if you became symptomatic 5 years ago, it means 8 months minimum off any fruits.
Avatar n tn She has gained 2 pounds and is freaking out but I told her to be patient because she is going to be happy that she did the gorge when she goes on the restricted diet. I followed the protocol in KT's book and began my diet on the third day but Dr. Simmeon's protocol says to gorge for 3 days and then begin the diet. I don't know why there is a day difference in the protocols. Also I noticed that DR.
Avatar m tn A lot of people have had success (and you'll never get your doctor admit it) by going on an elimination diet and then adding back foods slowly. Each of us seems to be sensitive to different foods but often it is dairy, gluten, sugar and caffiene. Research like crazy and share with us here and you will get lots of advice, again, some things work for some and other things for others.
Avatar n tn I have numerous symptoms and I was wondering if they all stem from being diagnosed 13 years ago with Fibromyalgia? One of my chief complaints is I get what I could describe as electrical shocks that start in my head and kind-of shoot through my body. They are very painful and seem to disappear with continued use of Lexapro (my dr. prescribed this for my fibro). However, I have other problems as well. I have severe allergies, in which my dr. has prescribed Zyrtec and Flonase.
Avatar f tn My feet and ankles sometimes hurt so bad I can't sleep or walk. I am on Lyrica for fibromyalgia and it makes the swelling worse.My blood sugar is coming down slowly with the insulin.I was put on another blood pressure pill but it made the swelling worse. I take Lisinopril and a water pill and am trying another new pill. My blood is still high. I wonder if I should go off the Lyrica? I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 40 years ago. I have lumps in all the adipose tissue on my body.
216278 tn?1308864682 tRY THE BOOK WHAT DR'S WON'T TELL YOU ABOUT FIBROMYALGIA -- IT IS VERY INTERESTING AND IF YOU FOLLOW THE DIET WHICH IS REALLY HARD YOU WON'T HAVE AS MUCH PAIN --- OUR FOODS IN USA ARE KILLING US!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE ONLY THING I CAN TAKE IS NUPRIN WHICH THE DR (WHEN I WAS PREGO) SAID WAS FINE UP UNTIL THE LAST 2 MONTHS...
Avatar n tn I used to have a book on Fibro,..gave all the diagrams of the various pressure points. Docs just wanted to medicate,.hated it I started working out with weights instead,(took a couple of months) never had that problem again.Sometimes I think when a doc is unable to dx he just doesnt want to send you away empty handed. These days I know soooo many people who have been dx with this. Exercise, prayer, seemed to take of it,....seriously. I do know some that go to pain clinics,.......
Avatar f tn can someone with some knowledge and experience please tell me what seems to be the best treatments out there when it comes to dealing with fibromyalgia? i am still trying to gather information on which is better lyrica or neurontin, and i am also told they are the same med? any truth to this? any advice on how to deal with flare ups would be just great also, at this point i am up for anything new that may help...
7864743 tn?1394873296 They know a lot about Fibromyalgia - the book is quite enlightening and if you find it, you will surely find the information you are looking for. Good health to you... fellow sufferer...
267076 tn?1270677931 I'm going to try the Mayo Clinic Diet and see what happens. I'm also going to try to get more exercise. It will be hard because of the pain but worth trying. I don't like to take drugs so am trying to find natural things or suppliments to take for the pain and other things. I also have a curve in my spine which may be part of the pain. Thanks againg for the reply and hope you have a very nice Easter.
Avatar f tn I have had Fibromyalgia & Chronic Fatigue Immunodysfunction for 20 years. For me a 60 to 80 mg of Depo-Medrol (steroid) does help. (up to 2 times per year and only when I am REALLY bad.) I've heard that Lyrica is very good for fibro. patients but I personally cannot take it as I get the bad side affects. He also had me do a SLEEP STUDY 2 months ago. I have mild sleep apnea & now use a C-Pap at night which I love.
1852058 tn?1320162300 Definitely try and educate yourself and your family as much as you can. One book that I purchased right after my diagnosis is called "Fibromyalgia for Dummies" - I found it to be very helpful, not only for myself, but also for my loved ones.
Avatar f tn html --- Aspartame Symptoms Submitted to the FDA I'm not sure now which diet drinks are still using aspartame, but if you drink diet soda... I would seriously start checking.
Avatar n tn Hi! Is anyone starting the HCG diet on Black Friday? I will be doing it 4 weeks thanksgiving to christmas? Do you want to start a support group?
Avatar f tn I HAVE BEEN DIGNOSED WITH PSORIATIC ARHTIRTIS AND FIBROMYALGIA. THIS TIME, 1 MONTH AGO IT STARTED WITH A SORE THROAT AND THEN I DEVELOPED GUTTATE PSORAISI, WHICH I HAVE HAD BOFRE. PLACED ON ANTBX. [PSORIASIS BETER. NOW GENERALIZED SORNESS ALL OVER ALL MY TENDONS. HEEL HURT IN THE MORNING THAT I CAN NOT WALK FOR A LITTLE WHILE AFTER AWAKENING. AND ALSO MY NECK IS STIFF. WORST OF ALL I HAVE HAD A HEADACHE NOW FOR 16 DAYS...I AWAKE AND IT IS STILL TEHRE. I GET STARTLED AND IT IS FLAMING WORSE.
1522259 tn?1291214939 He told me that he would only believe I had fibromyalgia when I showed that I have changed my diet by eliminating things like caffeine, sugar, processed food, drink lots and lots of water, etc., started light exercising, sleep and eat on a regular schedule, and all that fun stuff. I explained to him that I already eat very healthy, drink nothing but water, but I smoke somewhat and exercising is nearly impossible with my pain (but I would start trying to do it and work through the pain).
1047234 tn?1253547296 I have Fibromyalgia and am RH negative, as well!
Avatar f tn I find it really diffucult to get my diet organized, plus I have very high colesterol as well and basically I need to change my diet very fast. When I got checked it last Aug it was 7.2 and my GP wanted to put me on pill which I refused. Now I dont have any other choice just to really cut everything from my diet because everything makes me sick. Any suggestion what to eat so I feel good and enjoy the food?
483733 tn?1326802046 I have not read the book, but find diet is VERY important. Personally, I find that Organic Heavy Whipping Cream (not homogenized) will heal my mouth ulcers quicker than anything else...often over-night. I never eat any diary which is not organic, usually only the cream & butter (I whip it with organic fax seed oil from the fridge section, not the shelf), some plain yogurt with live cultures, very rarely eat any cheese, and milk--never. I grew up with organic raw milk...that I could drink.
136956 tn?1425609872 Its sad that we have come to that, but i do believe that if everyone ate better and I mean pretty much changing your whoel diet than we would have alot more healthy people. I was once like that i never ate well and i do believe that food is the healer to diseases.
