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.

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!
4856774 tn?1360095016 Any injury can worsen fibromyalgia, so yes, a car crash can be a real set back if you have fibromyalgia. However, aches and pains can also be the direct result of an injury from car crash. So, depending on your symptoms this aspect should be investigated. If your symptoms are due to worsening of fibromyalgia only, then the treatment is a mix and match of analgesics, anti depressants, anti seizure medications, physical therapy and counseling. Please discuss with your doctor. Take care!
Avatar n tn What causes attacks of SULPHUR BURPS followed by vomiting and diarrhea lasting for hours? I have had this problem for years, but lately it has become chronic. I'm on a low residual diet (no raw fruits or veggies-only cooked or canned). It helps a little. I have to sleep propped up in almost a sitting position which is miserable. My G.I. doc doesn't know what is causing it. He ran an endoscopy, an enteroscopy, and an ultrasound and found nothing.
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.

I am waiting for an appointment for a endoscopy which im scared of I hope they put me too sleep.
3202069 tn?1345404482 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 was diagnosed with fibromyalgia over 10 years ago. About one year ago, after all of my cancer treatments were finished; I began to experience the muscle pain and chronic fatigue again in a big way. I have not been able to shake it. I have changed my diet. No soft drinks, no artificial sweeteners, and, a vitamin/anti-oxidant juice every day. I also excersize 3 to 5 days a week. Nothing is helping!

Avatar n tn Sweet Sense, I am so happy that your mom got you on a healty diet. So many Americans eat too much and the wrong foods, then go to the doctor without a clue, think something is wrong with them other then what they eat(I'm not saying this is you :)) Most people are more fussy about the type of OIL they put in their car rather then what they put in their mouths! When my neck problems surfaced, I knew my eating HAD to change since my activities were drastically reduced.
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 You should check to see if it's lyme disease, which among other things can cause severe digestive problems. also, i agree with others that this could be a bacteria overgrowth or fungus problem. good for you about changing your diet. i had lyme (although my symptoms weren't digestive) and it inspired me to make drastic changes in my diet. i'm now on a totally raw, vegan, high-fruit diet, similar to the 811/hcrv diet on 30bananasaday.com. good luck!
Avatar f tn Cold intolerance is due to: Poor circulation/Vasoconstriction, Reynaud's disease, Arthritis/Fibromyalgia, Anemia, Hypothyroidism, Thermogenin dysregulation and other imbalances. Consumption of vasodilating foods , daily physical activity, proper thyroid regulation (type 2 hypothyroidism/thyroid resistance is missed MOST of the time!), iron status improvement, low carb diet etc. can be very helpful.
Avatar n tn There are blood tests to determine how much inflammation is present. Lastly, try to avoid foods that cause inflammation and eat those foods that are considered anti-inflammatory - although it is controversial I have found a good diet can help minimize swelling and ease some pain. God bless and I pray you will be feeling better.

I too have been told I have these problems and have put on weight although I eat little. I have not yet been put on medicine due to the doctor is running a bunch of test and last week I had a biopsey . I am hoping to start the meds this week. Also the hot flashes are almost more than I can stand.
