Fibromyalgia diet foods to avoid

Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia diet foods to avoid


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 f tn I have been diagnosed for almost a year now. My fibromyalgia is associated with my Sjogren's syndrome. I am taking Morphine and oxycodone but suffer from chronic pancreatitis as well. Good luck finding something that works for you. Gabapentin may help relieve some of the nervous system symptoms.

Avatar m tn // But we each have foods that may be a trigger for us, it may be an allergy , or just an irritant. Once I know the exercise plan works I will share it....
Avatar f tn I have since found out that pork is also included in the foods to avoid for Tyramine Intolerance. Plus, the reason all of here want to avoid pork is that it is not very digestible, so people with chronic health concerns that also cause digestive issues just don't tolerate pork. It isn't as much about what can you eat as to what you should definitely avoid.
Avatar n tn Would you be so kind as to post a link to a list of the foods allowed and ones to avoid. I've found some but none seem concise as to the relation to candida growth. 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.
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 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 m tn There are some great websites out there that have lots of suggestions as to what foods to avoid and what foods to consume. For me personally, the processed sugars and flours seemed to be a trigger for my pain and fatigue. I've recently discovered that artificial sugars and MSG wreak havoc on my body, as well. It takes some trial and error, but I can't tell you how much better you will feel, once you start working on your diet. I would also recommend you begin a daily vitamin regimine.
Avatar n tn I want to make this as scientific as possible to communicate to people with measurements, exact foods, diary, etc. I plan on following this to the exact letter...............if at all possible. I would like to have a website with all of my trials and tribulations documented. Do you know if anyone has done this?........................ I have 75 pounds to loose. Diabetes, Thyroid issues.................. looking to get off the diabetes meds for sure.
1069644 tn?1276932463 I can definitely make some improvements in my diet and will talk to the doc about the diclofenac. He really seems to care and is willing to try anything but sometimes I feel like he just throws meds at me. I hate taking pain meds but as you know sometimes we just don't have a choice. Thank you again so much for responding. UK2, thank you as well and I am so sorry you have had to deal with so much. I hope you find some relief.
Avatar f tn Sometimes I eat them and think I feel worse the next day and sometimes I think there is no impact at all, but it may have to do with the fact I do try to avoid these foods and only eat them on special occasions when I am likely to over exert myself anyway. If you search the web, you will find all kinds of advice and special diets that are sure to change your life! Many years ago when I was wrongly diagnosed with fibromyalgia, I tried several snake oil miracle cures.
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.
653138 tn?1258576504 The only unifying factor here is the fibromyalgia, which is a little understood disease that can cause all the other symptoms you're having, which is why I asked which came first. As for diet, the easy part to advise is to avoid anything stimulating, including caffeine and sugar. You should also avoid simple carbs such as white flour, which, along with sugar, is pro-inflammatory and turns to sugar in the system very quickly. Also avoid dairy and wheat, which are also pro-inflammatory.
1852058 tn?1320162300 You most certainly are NOT alone, so please never feel that way. And you absolutely have NOTHING to be ashamed of. I, too, have fibro (along with several other health issues, including other chronic pain issues) - so I do definitely understand how you're feeling.
Avatar n tn If you have had any other symptoms, no matter how strange, please add them, like if you're getting more headaches, or react to certain foods like a glass of wine. Has your doctor done any blood work? From your brief description, he/she doesn't sound like a caring person, more dismissive, here's a prescription, bye!. Any chance you can change doctors? There's a site called where patients review doctors, maybe there's a better one in your area.
Avatar f tn Aspartame is in hundreds of different colas, desserts, candies, and other junk foods. The only way to avoid it is to shop the supermarket periphery for your food - the meat and fish, dairy, and fresh fruits and vegetables. There are also many fine foods from Europe and the far East that come in cans and jars that don't contain the poisonous sugar substitute - tuna, meat and fish pates, muscles, clams - you get the idea.
1748829 tn?1338040641 hey had tooth removed today or technically had twisted gross broken root remove today and my Dr told me liquid diet for three days and i am trying to follow that to the letter because this is the worse tooth issue I have ever had to deal with and don't want it to get worse in anyway, so my question to you is what are some ideas for liquid diets that i could drink before my pills so there is something in my stomach so I am not any sicker then I have to be.
Avatar n tn Has anyone found ANYTHING to succesfully treat the GI symptoms mentioned above? There is no cure for Fibromyalgia, but there HAS to be something to at least TREAT the GI symptoms!
Avatar f tn I am not doing well with certain diet aspects with my various conditions though I do try to avoid the nitrate/nitrite foods and more due to migraine triggers. Do get your ferritin checked & let us know how you fair? Have you ever had your free T4 checked along with the TSH?
251922 tn?1193786078 That is right in line w/ what Dr. S. said it should be. I can not wait to expand to the phase 3 diet however I plan to follow that close as well becuse Dr. S says it is crucial for long term success. Just want to share this as I found it so awsome. I have a off road race truck with a 5 point seatbelt system that was set to my size. I got in the truck today and the belt was over 7 inches loose !! Totally unbelivable...............................I'm shrinking fast,.
Avatar n tn lol Feels kind of strange eating until I am about to puke and it's OK! I'm ready to start the VLCD diet tomorrow, ready for the weight loss to kick in. I haven't started my water consumption yet. That was one thing I was wondering about. I wasn't sure if that was supposed to happen during the load days or wait until the calories dropped but I've started drinking water today. Maybe as upinak said, it will help with the headaches. I hope!
11072290 tn?1415066835 You may also find that cutting out sugary and processed foods and sticking to a healthy and well balanced diet with fresh fruit and vegetables beneficial too. Sometimes inflammation can be triggered by what we eat and drink. Cutting out all the junk food will also help with regard to your menopausal symptoms. You may find Evening Primrose Oil helpful with regard to that too.

139792 tn?1498589250 It Isn't All Bad If you don't have a medical condition that requires you to avoid gluten, keeping gluten in your diet while improving the quality of foods you eat will make eating out and shopping for foods a lot easier. Some pros of gluten include being able to eat whole-grain breads and cereals that offer necessary fiber and nutrients such as B vitamins.
1047234 tn?1253547296 Rhogam changed natures system, and now the negative and positives are all mixed and are causing problems.I also think our diet is different, and much more sensitive to processed foods, and need more natural foods, and more sensitive in general.Check out the negativeblood.ning, and another one negativeblood autoimmune.
1550149 tn?1340004330 Deficiencies of glucosamine and chondroitin sulfate are rare, since they are manufactured by the body, and the key to increasing their production is consuming a healthy diet that contains meats, eggs, good fats, low carbs, no sugars, no processed foods, etc. as well as improving digestion. Also see the candida diet and the main candida article for details about the candida diet. Also see information about healthy diets in Foods that Damage, Foods that Heal.
10641686 tn?1411758780 Keep a record of when this happens to identify any foods or stressful situations that trigger this off so that you can avoid this. Even if you were diagnosed with fibromyalgia, you would probably be given advice to reduce your stress levels, and do gentle exercises. Make sure that you have a healthy and well balanced diet with fruit and vegetables; avoid the foods and drinks that set off your irritable bowel. Cut out all junk and processed foods, cakes, biscuits.
Avatar n tn Since I have not changed my diet or schedule, I have begun to question my consumption of Diet Coke. I have been drinking Diet Coke since I was diagnosed with Type I several years ago and it has not appeared to raise my blood sugar, but it is now the only explanation I can find. I am going to try to stop drinking it to see what happens in the meantime, but this will be extremely hard since I usually drink about 16 ounces a day.
