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).

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 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 n tn Hi! Is anyone starting the HCG diet on Black Friday? I will be doing it 4 weeks thanksgiving to christmas? Do you want to start a support group?
280418 tn?1306329510 i remember our ped GI telling me that the gluten free diet might help me with my fibromyalgia---which i am assuming i sprobably lyme disease. however, i have never gone totally gluten free. i just thought i'd let you know that gluten free really isn't that hard to do. it can be inconvenient at times, but we have been able to reproduce almost everything we ate before diagnosis.
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 Yesterday I saw an Endocrinologist, more or less for an opinion because of the barely normal Vitamin D, barely normal FT3, barely normal Glucose, an A1c that is 50% of the way to being PreDiabetes, etc. He factually told me that the guidelines say it isn't acceptable to treat Hypo by symptoms and that the TSH doesn't support being on medication for it. He flat out said that the suppressed TSH from the Armour means it says I have too much in my system. Oh come on!
Avatar m tn Also feels a lot like giving birth to a cement block. Sideways. [/TMI] My diet is, well, bad. I eat cheap, easy food. I just don't have the energy to cook a decent meal and very little is appetizing to me lately except garbage. I drink a lot of caffeine just to make it through the day and my diet hasn't changed in years.
242516 tn?1368227505 They work by stopping the spread of the virus and if you take the antiviral too late, it's too late to stop the spread, it's already happened. Here are some guidelines on helping differentiate between run of the mill colds and more serious bacterial infections: When do I need antibiotics for a cold, as an adult? Never. Are you sick with a runny nose, sore throat, cough, possibly even goey green and brown stuff coming out?
1353650 tn?1429466974 Look up Dr. Burrascano's guidelines for lyme disease. You need to educate yourself to make sure you are getting the best treatment for your condition.
Avatar f tn I have Epstein Barr Virus, Fibromyalgia, and Chronic Fatigue. My Epstein Barr Virus titers are off the charts and indicate a current reactivation. I have the nausea on and off for the last 6 months now along with many of the symptoms you describe. I thought I had an ulcer too. Find a doctor (probably an alternative medicine doctor or a Fibromyalgia and Fatigue Center) who will test you for Epstein Barr Virus and other viruses and/or bacteria and treat you.
Avatar f tn Try an elimination diet (google it) to see what foods bother you so you can narrow it down. They other possibility is that you have an infectious condition- something like Lyme Disease or Mycoplasma Infection. Just do a search to find out if your symptoms match. Post again and let us know.
1353650 tn?1429466974 He does not follow ILADS or Burrascano's guidelines to treatment of lyme disease. Do not see a doctor that does not follow these guidelines. They don't treat you to get better, they treat you to make money. We wasted a lot of our time and money going to the first doctor and it was all a waste. Symptoms of bartenella: swollen glands, abdominal pain and sore feet when putting your feet to the floor in the morning.
Avatar f tn There are plenty of healthy people who are not on such a strict vegan diet. I just don't think that my diet alone (while probably not healthy by your standards, it is by FDA/Food Pyramid Standards) is the reason I am in so much pain. I also don't think my weight, which again is an arbitrary number since I have felt the same whether I have weighed 130 or 230 is relevant, other than my weight has gone up significantly since March).
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.
Avatar f tn I also took a MRT food sensitivity test and tried to eliminate reactive and moderately reactive foods from my diet. Things slowly began to improve and my upper throat burning choking sensation began to recede. My eyes slowly are less inflammed - though I still take a steroid drop every few days. My body aches finally we’re not too noticeable as of beginning of February and I have more energy. I also stopped breastfeeding in December and took the h Pylori antibiotic regime ending in January.
Avatar f tn With a happier thyroid all you need is a balanced diet and a mix of cardio and weight training exercise. Move away from everything in a package. Eat plenty of fresh veggies and fruits, have lean meats, low fat dairy, and whole grains. A good ratio -is to have a dinner saucer almost half full of veggies, a quart full of good proteins, and a quarter full of grains. Make sure you eat all 3 meals and add 1-2 snack, so that you're eating every few hours.

Avatar m tn H indeed never ever recommends 6 mo test, because I just looked and he is one of the co-authors on the new CDC guidelines (another reason to trust completely everything he says!). But there are about 200 other authors, so he probably didn't write that particular section.
Avatar f tn I can only offer my opinion,,,from what I've learned, read and experienced. It sounds as if you were treated according to the IDSA guidelines. I would suggest you find a doctor who specializes in Tick-Borne Illnesses. Lyme disease and the co-infections that go with this illness isn't easily "cured" in a few weeks time. Although, the current guidelines state just that. You don't get a "straight" answer because of the current guidelines.

Avatar f tn Also, I've been basically on a starvation diet since I can barely eat and lost 5 pounds. I'm already naturally underweight. I read online that a magnesium deficiency can cause some of these problems... and every time I google them I end up with Fibromyalgia, MS, Magnesium deficiency, B12 Deficiency, Thyroid problems... or worse, ALS. I stopped taking the B complex many months ago, and instead begin taking a multi vitamin with extra vitamin D on the side (1000IU).
2031081 tn?1329279520 I just recently started going to a bariatric clinic where they give you an appetite supressant called adipex and they help you to try and find the right diet and exercise for the individual. They do just an overall blood work on you so they know generally how healthy you are and tsh and t4 was one of the things they tested.
607502 tn?1288251140 com is 1260, well below the Cleveland Clinic's 2000 mg low sodium diet guidelines. However, had soup (high sodium) for lunch and some sweet carbs in pm, no lemon water or diueretic foods. So - can this be controlled at all? Who knows. But I would bank in those as not having helped. I was already a "water retainer." Now will go in crack down mode and see if it helps. Here are a couple links and my plan...crossing fingers... Cleveland Clinic info: http://my.clevelandclinic.
Avatar f tn You should experience results very fast. It's hard to attribute this to fibro-but you must understand that fibromyalgia is a syndrome which by definition does not cause anything. I hope this helps. Best wishes.
802547 tn?1237850517 // that any diet improves or worsens the symptoms of autism spectrum disorders. In fact, whole grains and dairy products are an important part of a healthy diet for most children. “Food allergies are like Iran and Iraq. Glial cells (they’re like chef cell) provide food to the neuron kings. Glial cells can turn into Rambo to fight Iran and Iraq.
Avatar f tn I agree with ceanothus, you may have some completely unrelated issues. Whatever the cause, it would be good for you to find out. As far as diet goes, I'd stick with a standard, fresh, healthy as organic as possible, regime, and regular exercise.
Avatar f tn I suffer with chronic constipation that I believe is caused by my chronic inflammation in my body. You need to change your diet (get off sugar and simple carbohydrates), take certain supplements (especially fiber supplements because they help absorb the moisture in the colon) and look into getting medication (questran I think it is called). Some people have to take this even though they don't have problems with cholesterol.
