Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia diet foods


Avatar m tn 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. The other treatment options are cognitive behavior therapy, psychotherapy, physiotherapy etc.

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 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.
Avatar f tn the liver filters toxins and if i got the info right, something called Kupffer cells in turn release IL1 IL2 somehow in turn the spinal cord and brain get over excited and we perceive pain. here are some links if anyone suffers from pain..
Avatar f tn I have heard that eating healthier foods will help with fibromyalgia symptoms is that so and what foods shoulld i eat.
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.
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 have recently been diagnosed with Fibromyalgia which is a chronic pain through my joints. I am trying many herbal remedies and have been to see a Kinesiologist who has really helped me as it took approx 5 years to diagnoise me. I thought I was going insane as I was told over and over again nothing was showing up in my blood!. Eventually I was diagnoised which is great because now I know what I am dealing with.
209591 tn?1267418314 Is that normal? In the last months, I have noticed an inability to keep foods of any kinds on my stomach. At first the symptoms presented with chronic diarrhea, nausea and vomiting. I was unable to even keep liquids down for the first two to two and a half weeks. The symptoms have persisted for more than a month now, so it lets me further know that it is not a virus, which was my very first thought.
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 I think it helps the guys somewhat but REALLY helps my Fibromyalgia. It is a difficult diet to follow but you might be amazed at how much better you feel. I have come up with some of my own recipes so I don't have to buy the expensive GFCF foods. It is definitely worth trying for at least a few months to see if it helps you.
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 m tn My doctor is sending me to be "tested" for Fibromyalgia. She has told me, and from what I have read, it is a disease that is difficult to diagnose. What test(s) do they use and how painful are the test(s)? Also, is Fibromyalgia a hereditary disease? My mother had it and my aunt has had it for the last two years. Thanks!
Avatar n tn pigged out Sat and Sun and started a 750 cal diet on Monday when I received a 2nd shot. I have been hungry and ate foods off my diet. I am a little discouraged and not sure what to do. I am supposed to get three 250 iu shots a week and it will cost $50.00 per week. They also had a doctor do blood work and gave me an ekg, which I paid 60.00 for. I need to lose 60 lbs, ugh....
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.
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!
Avatar f tn I'm also curious if there is a link between tooth decay and fibromyalgia. I take excellent care of my teeth and haven't had cavities prior to the fibromyalgia.
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.
2128874 tn?1335445782 I think I've always had these symptoms to an extent, but perhaps, they've worsened with academic pressures and age. Is the solution simply pinpointing and removing certain foods from my diet or is there a name for this?
Avatar f tn Does anyone out there have any knowledge about specific foods that either help RA or irritate the situation - for you anyway???? It would sure be nice to know if there are foods to stay away from..... Thanks in advance!
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 m tn Hey droc2013, welcome to the forum. It doesn't sound like Fibromyalgia. I would suggest you rule out low thyroid function first, as in low thyroid conditions, any organ, any bodily system can be affected and functioning at sub-optimum levels. Note: Re:Thyroid testing Thyroid Serum testing is flawed, as it is not necessarily indicative of cellular thyroid function ! Most conventional doctors order TSH,T3 and T4 at best.
267076 tn?1270677931 no matter how careful I am with my diet. It's soooo annoying. That and the horrible hip pain. I try to eat bland foods and not a lot at once, besides the NOT bending over part, and I take Protonic(?spelling) at night, and soft chew anti acids by day when needed. Most day I am fine with the nighttime pill. But everyone needs Pizza once in a while. I have also found this online book that I downloaded for's about natural healing...
