Fibromyalgia diet food list

Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia diet food list


710094 tn?1229312306 I'm wary of the ginko biloba, because I have Oral Allergy Syndrome and a list of food sensitivities and allergies a mile long. This involves tree pollen allergies and allergie to tree nuts. IMMUNE26 isn't going to be good for all people. Some of us are sensitive to or allergic to eggs.
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 m tn HI...I am working with a Dr on MedHelp for an exercise program for us!! As soon as I know it is doable I will let u all in on it... 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? Sorry for the questions, but they will help in answering ur question.
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.
351317 tn?1204755471 Or could be candida which will be alleviated with a decrease in the carbs/sugary foods in a gluten free diet. Also if you are going to get tested for food allergies, don't cut out the foods for a prolonged period before the test or a reaction may not occur; especially in celiacs/gluten testing in which the antibodies will not be present during the test if you have been gluten free for a period before the test.
Avatar n tn I have been suffering off and on for a year now with the following list of symptoms.... neuropathy in feet .... carpaltunnel in hands...internal vibration/shakes...crawling pressure in temples...floaters in eyes...IBS..joint pain..burning tingling and numbness throughout my body...pain points in chest upper back thighs .... sciatic nerve pain... burning tongue and lips... heart palps ...shortness of breath...
Avatar n tn The other distinction I cannot find is the difference between complex and simple carbs in a list form. I found an app but you have to search the particular food first to find it's properties. Lists work best for me.
620923 tn?1452919248 but, we also know we have many more symptoms that r chiari related that fall thru the cracks...lets make a list of all the symptoms not on the Official lists.
Avatar f tn The second major form of syringomyelia occurs as a complication of trauma, meningitis, haemorrhage, tumour, or arachnoiditis. There is quite a good list of symptoms on the Chiari One website - symptoms list. The list includes quite a few of your symptoms including burning shoulders. A standard MRI - sagittal (side) view is used to help identify Chiari 1. A cine (stands for cinema) MRI helps to determine the amount of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) flow.
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.
Avatar f tn Fibromyalgia, however, having said that, there are no 2 Fibromyalgia sufferers, the same, and the list of the symptoms can vary extensively! My suspicion would be serious deficiencies, including neurotransmitter and mineral deficiencies, with some of your anti-depressant drugs perhaps exasperating your symptoms. Have you ever had any tests done for deficiencies? Also look into Dr. Coca's Pulse Test for anything ingested that you may be reactive. it's a free download.
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?
Avatar m tn And i eat between a paleo and raw vegan diet but i'm going to try .The Okinawa Diet Food Pyramid but MINUS any grains and bread as their really bad for our insides period. And there's plenty of Asian food stores about so you can buy stuff like ''Purple sweet potatoes'' and anything else you need. Read up on The Okinawa people they live longer and healthier than ANYONE in the world.
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.
Avatar f tn Mostly I was saying I can't take meds or herbs because I'm too hyperreactive so I've had to find other things. Ideas would be food diet changes, behavior changes for the dysautonmias, very very very graduated exercise, sometime vitaimins and such can help. I've rambled about all at various times. I'll try to come back and recreate my post. But now I have to go do my walk (before the stores close - I'm not doing today's outside in the cold), and then caulk a tub. So, talk to you soon.
620060 tn?1235519391 It is recommended to cut out all caffeine, dairy foods, sugars, red meat, carbonated drinks, fried foods and salt. This is pretty much my diet, lol. They do have a Fibromyalgia cookbook available, if you are interested in something like that. Fibromyalgia Cookbook by Mary Mueller is one source.
Avatar f tn are there any earlier signs, before jumping straight to that? I'm 27 female diagnosed with fibromyalgia, ADHD, hyper-mobility, GAD, and chronic TMJ issues. I have had pain issues as far back as I can remember; going to a chiropractor as a teenager. my TMJ issues started much younger. I have food intolerances. it started with avocados over a decade ago, then eggs, then fish, and I cut dairy out this week. It is the worst pain imaginable when I eat, and the only cure is sensory deprivation.
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.
Avatar n tn I'm a type II diabetic diagnosed this year with food allergies: corn, peanuts, soybeans, eggs and lettuce and various things in those families. That puts a great many "health" and low fat foods off my list and diabetic staples like eggs are a fond memory. I can't find any information out there to help me balance these evils (diabetes and allergies) against each other.
1852058 tn?1320162300 He is a cellular pathologist who used to be in charge of the MD Anderson Cancer Research Facility. HUGE list of accolades and experience. He discovered infectious Mycoplasmas are causing the Immune system to go "over the edge" coupled w/ reactivated viruses and fungal issues. Seems when the immune system is damaged by a bacteria that is chronic (intracellular), it creates a dysfunction where killer cells attack the immune system and CNS.
Avatar n tn But on to bigger and better things remember even if you have a low diet consisting of only 900 cal what kind of food you are puttin in your mouth cuz i can eat 6 snicker bars and have only eaten 600 or 700 cals lol that was just an example of course not saying thats what you are doing but just reminding be careful what foods you have been choosing and also after your 4wks when you go back to regualr diet you have to keep working out and eating good otherwise time money and effort will be throw
Avatar n tn It worked good for me. As far as diet I started with the Swank diet but think the Paleo Diet has shown more success in threating neurological diseases. As far as the dental thing I had 10 root canals and an assortment of fillings. My gums were bleeding and that was clearly a problem in my case. Everyone must decide this issue for theirself because this is a major decision. I have some information concerning this issue that I will post.
Avatar n tn Have Him or Her call you doctor, to suggest possible adjustments and changes to your meds. Research for safer non-drug alternatives. And cut out carbs, sugars, junk food, sodas including diet or low cal. (they're the worse for your health and vicious for Fibro and like conditions) You will feel better in just a few days, just doing this. Consume Coconut Oil -virgin and organic. The healthiest Oil you can put into your body. Visit the coconut research center website for details.
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).
Avatar n tn I have gained (according to them 50lbs but according to my scale about 35lbs in 9 months). I work out 3-4 days a week. I have a pretty decent diet, not big on junk food. I'm always tired (I even yawn at the gym!!) regardless of how much sleep I get. I have zero sex drive. Dry/Brittle Hair My hands get cold for no reason. I have bad night sweats Constipation My mood swings are horrid Dry skin (but I live in it's normal for here).
Avatar f tn We don't want to but feeding our children healthy food(bc chips and junk would not be on our list ) is more important to us then our pride. And if I get pregnant ill get WIC. I think its wonderful!
Avatar m tn Franke: "No, you don't have fibro- you have side effects from Interferon!" I don't know how fibromyalgia fits into the autoimmune disorder spectrum. I thought that yes, tx can 'awaken' underlying autoimmune disorders or worsen pre-existing ones. Fibromyalgia, though, is treated with interferon, so I'm not sure how that plays out.
1047234 tn?1253547296 I have Fibromyalgia and am RH negative, as well!
Avatar f tn I was having difficulty eating as a wide group of foods started bothering me in a variety of ways- from stomach pain to fatigue to worsened rosacea or asthma. I suspected celiac or other food intolerances but my IGA test actually came back mildly deficient. I saw a gastro that told me to do a gluten challenge so she could do an endoscopy, which I did for 8 weeks. It was the worst 2 months of my life.
