Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia diet guidelines


Avatar m tn I too suffer from fibromyalgia for past three years. I am hydrocortison 10mg morning+5 mg after lunch and 5 mg after supper (before gives good sleep). Besides I take Vitamin D3 2000iu daily (as steroid depletes Calcium... and my teeth started falling, E-cod (for Omega 3 and Vit E), Rusvostatin (Cholesterol increases as a gift of fibromyalgia) Co-Q10 (antioxidant and energizing cells), Thyroxine (hyerthyroid another gift), Cobadex forte (multivitamine).
Avatar m tn The dietitians recommendation, based on a study published in the Journal of American Nutrition and Diet, recommends a high calcium and oxalate diet on the theory that such a diet will have the calcium and oxalate combine in the digestive track before they get to the kidney. An additional concern is that the urologist recommended diet cuts out many food groups that I have come to believe are good for you: whole wheat bread and pasta, beans, leafy green vegetables, nuts, green tea, chocolate.
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!
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 f tn I read Shannieks response concerning the diet she was put on for thyroid and fibromyalgia problems and was wondering if she could share with me. 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.
Avatar n tn Fibromyalgia has been suggested, along with hypothyroid, but the TSH test disproves that theory. The guidelines my MD gave me sounded like fibromyalgia guidelines, but she never mentioned that specific dx. I do not have health insurance and we are very tight on money right now, so I don't want to do any tests that are not necessary, and can't keep going in to see the doctor without having a more clear idea on what I should be asking about/for. Thanks.
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.

1376367 tn?1319226427 I recently spoke with a representative from the Fibromyalgia and Fatigue Center and she said to me that in all her seven years of taking calls for this center a lot of women seemed to get fibromyalgia because of having a hysterectomy. There seems to be some sort of connection here according to her. I can only go by my experience and that is true for me, however I have 3 daughters and 2 out of 3 has already experienced troubles with the reproductive system.

483733 tn?1326798446 I just found out yesterday that in addition to my likely Lupus (we are hoping this round of bloodwork will provide something definitive) that I also have Fibromyalgia. How do you tell which is which when you are in pain?
Avatar f tn This is not a question. I believe that Fibromyalgia is caused my Gluten intolerance and MSG. Those two affect the IBS that plays a role in FM. I've felt so much better excluding these out of my diet. Dairy intolerance is another one. I started taking Gabapentin and that has given me back 80% use of my body. I can clean my house now and even garden for a short period of time. It has allowed me to walk about 1/4 of a mile each day.
Avatar f tn For a very long time we both thought we had Fibromyalgia and were both officially diagnosed by several different doctors. Anyone else out there have the same thing happen?
