Avatar f tn I'm new here and I haven't had a fibromyalgia diagnosis, but I have had muscle twitching all over (mostly in my legs) and that has died down quite a bit, but I've have tired muscles and I have been so tired. I get tender spots that hurt for no reason to the touch. This past Saturday I went dancing and almost didn't make it through the first song, my legs started to hurt so bad. I woke up the next morning and it felt like someone had beat my legs with a baseball bat.
Avatar f tn I am a vegetarian with a no sugar/no fat diet....but I eat chicken and fish once in a while. I dont drink or smoke and I am very active, in running/martial arts for past ten years. I dont LOOK ill, but that's what is so weird, I have to sleep so much just to be okay on my work days. If people only knew!! I also take a fair amount of vitamins, and drink tons of water. I was married years ago, but I had two deaths in my family, and supposedly, there is unresolved grief from years ago.
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?

Now as for a diet, I have a few u know if u have a thyroid issue? were u checked lately for an autoimmune issue?How about Ehlers-Danlos? Do u ever have issues with IBS?

3202069 tn?1345408082 I have had fibromyalgia for about 8 yrs maybe longer. It is very hard to deal with. My legs bother me alot. I am on pain meds and eating certain foods make it worse. 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.
Avatar f tn I find it very helpful to eat a whole foods based diet. This eliminates a lot of contradictions and cross contamination problems one will certainly encounter with the processed convenience foods. That and it seems that many on this forum are gluten and lactose intolerant, so those things seem to be the top things to avoid. Then, of course, the other things right up there to avoid would be the produce items in the nightshade family.
Avatar f tn Hello everybody , im fighting fibromyalgia, im not completly cured ,but I fell MUCH MUCH better, and the best part im not taking any kind of medicines.
Avatar n tn I am only 25 and have all the symptoms of fibromyalgia, CFS and MCS. I am unable to get out of bed some days but because of my young age my doctor is not seeming to take me seriously. He tests my thyroid and iron levels and many other things, but has not sent me to a fibromyalgia specialists. Also I have not been able to get disability cheques, so I am on government assistance:(. Does anybody more experienced have any advice for me? This can be quite stressful.
Avatar f tn Hi, I am wondering if fibromyalgia can be missed for years before being diagnosed? When I was a kid up until now I have always had muscle pain. Charlie horses, cramps, tingling in my feet & swelling. No doctor ever said anything to my parents or me. Now I'm 34 haven't been able to work for the last 4 wks due to muscle pain, cramps so bad I'm unable to walk, confusion so bad it interfered with my work, my immune system is basically null & void.

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.
209591 tn?1267418314 Hi, I am a 25 year old female that was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia in August along with many other things...I have been staying so tired, some days sleeping more than 15 hours....Just getting out of bed sometimes is almost impossible...For you all what has been the most helpful treatment (exercise, therapy or medication) for your fatigue? All of my medicines cause fatigue and so do all 8 to 10 diagnoses I currently have...Thanks so much for your help.
Avatar f tn A proper diet is key to overall health in general...not just for FMS. Due to multiple chemical sensitivities involving FMS there are some foods that can irritate the symptoms. The only sure way to tell this would be to delete a substance, see if one feels better, then add the substance back into the diet to see if one feels worse. If you suspect food allergies, testing can be done (but this is painful and can be quite lengthy).
Avatar f tn I have stopped eating bread but have not started a strict gluten free diet. Im scared to eat as I have no clue why foods make me soo nautious and uncomfortable. Have I been misdiagnosed with fibromyalgia as celiacs can cause alike symptoms (joint pain)? I think my dad may have had it celiacs but he has passed. I am waiting for an appointment for a endoscopy which im scared of I hope they put me too sleep.
1770280 tn?1314588560 I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia Syndrome back in the mid 1990's and was given amitriptyline for it a few years later. I went on a vitamin and supplement regimen which kept the pain to a tolerable level for four or five years. Then I started with Elavil/amitrip for about five years before that wasn't working too well and I was placed on Effexor XR. NOT a good drug.

Avatar f tn So here are some natural methods to relieve the symptoms of Fibromyalgia Dietary Guidelines -The daily diet should include milled flax seed, 3 or more tbsp., or cold-pressed, unrefined flax seed oil. Flax seed and its oil contain the essential fatty acid omega-3 alpha-linolenic acid, which the body converts into hormone-like substances called prostaglandins. Prostaglandins help relieve the inflammation of fibromyalgia.
209591 tn?1267418314 After informing him of my fear of hospitals, he put me on Levsin Sublingually and a liquid diet. For the first few days after the script, I was still unable to keep liquids down, nor the Jello I would eat. My blood pressure also sky rocketed and has yet decreased, staying above 140/95 sometimes as high as 160/100 with a pulse of 123. I have also lost a total of 9 pounds since November 27th.
Avatar n tn 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. Simmeon says to eat white fish but in KT's book he is specific about the white fish being halibut, Chilean sea bass, flounder or sole. Is anyone following just Dr. Simmeon's protocol and if so are you eating other white fish like orange roughy or tilapia?
470168 tn?1237474845 Hi, I have recently been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia (after 25 years) and have a son diagnosed as on the autistic spectrum. I am noticing that he is getting pain in/around his shoulder joint usually lasting for 24 hours. I started with the same symptoms. Does anyone else have both these conditions within the family and especially anyone with autism and fibromyalgia. On a different topic, I have had alot of success recently using dietry intervention.
Avatar f tn My name is Donna and I am 51 years old, 12 years ago I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia. I trusted what I was told and over the years have taken nearly every kind of anti-depressant known, all with awful side effects, much worse than the pain I was feeling. As the years have passed I have become more and more convinced that I was mis- diagnosed. When giving my symptoms to Dr.
470168 tn?1237474845 I am diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and my son with Autistic Spectrum Disorder. I am noticing he is getting some muscle/joint pain, only lasting 24 hours, but it is similar to how my conditions started. Does anyone else have a dual diagnosis or have both within the family?

And there's plenty of Asian food stores about so you can buy stuff like ''Purple sweet potatoes'' and anything else you need.

1830047 tn?1321671393 The diet for migraine is different than fibromyalgia so I walk the fence and follow a modified diet that is organic and healthy. Hard to get exercise. I have no friends. My husband divorced me when I got sick and could not make money anymore. Try to keep a up attitude as much as possible. Researching Stanford Study for Fibromyalgia and Migraines.
Avatar n tn I'm scared because I know I'm going to need it to live! I also have had fibromyalgia for years and along with that comes a sensitivity to a lot of meds. Does anyone have any info on this. Help Please!
1069644 tn?1276932463 case of Fibromyalgia then I would have to say, no, Fibromyalgia is not progressive, but everyone's experiences with the disease seems to be very different than the "textbook." Some people are able to overcome much of the pain and live symptom free for many years by using good management techniques, which can include nutrition, medication and exercise programs, while others may not improve using these same processes.
