fibromyalgia

Avatar m tn selmaS: You rock with the diet program! I too am having issues with a lot of weight gain since surgery in '08. I have Graves in remission so the endo checks my thyroid and says my levels are "normal". Still I wonder if chiari hasn't done something to trip up my pituitary gland. It was quite flat when I saw it last MRI. My endo is good at endocrinology but isn't that familiar with CM so I think I need to ask him about this.
1839746 tn?1318550406 I am suffering from fibromyalgia for the past 7 years & recently underwent OZONE treatment for both fibromyalgia & disc bulge in L3,L4 & L4,L5. I had to takes injections throughout my back, neck, chest, hands and legs. I felt so light and free for 1 week post-treatment. Now I feel burning pain near my neck, head, hip region and legs. It is worse than before. I ham on complete rest for the past 2 months. Does ozone really work??? what is happening in my case??
5586759 tn?1370438872 I've had Fibromyalgia since I was a teenager and I have gone through one pregnancy already, but at the time I hadn't been diagnosed properly for the ailments that I have. It's now round two, I am pregnant again, and I'm wondering about good suggestions to help maintain lower levels of pain. Last time I was put on bed rest at 8 1/2 months and that was torture for my sciatica nerve. I'm trying to stay active and strong. I've been going through physical therapy and things of that nature.
Avatar f tn well just got back from lawyer apt and it didn't go well. It seemed as if he didn't believe in fibromyalgia even though he didn't say that. Said that all my test came back ok that it didn't appear that i have anything wrong with me besides my one seizure on my eeg. And that even if i did win since i don't have enough credits and i have to file for ssi and my husband works that i probably won't recieve much as far as a monthly benefit.
Avatar n tn I followed the protocol in KT's book and began my diet on the third day but Dr. Simmeon's protocol says to gorge for 3 days and then begin the diet. I don't know why there is a day difference in the protocols. Also I noticed that DR. Simmeon says to eat white fish but in KT's book he is specific about the white fish being halibut, Chilean sea bass, flounder or sole. Is anyone following just Dr. Simmeon's protocol and if so are you eating other white fish like orange roughy or tilapia?
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.
Avatar n tn Hi Karmen, Your symptoms are very similar to those caused by vitamin b12 deficiency. The fact that you have already been diagnosed with Chronn's disease would make this even more suspect as deficiency can be one of the side effects of Chronn's. Ask your doctor if he has tested your b12 level and don't accept that it is "normal" without knowing the actual result.
Avatar f tn No one ever mentions diet...probably the most important factor in fibromyalgia, myofascial pain syndrome, arthritis and other similar health problems is "what are you eating?" There is a group of foods called the Nightshade Plants which includes potatoes, eggplants, tomatoes, peppers, including capsicums, cayenne and chili peppers, tobacco. These plants contain a chemical alkaloid called solanine which can trigger pain in some people.
Avatar n tn She did a few things in her office and said that i had Fibromyalgia(keep in mind that she never took blood at that point). She then gave me a prescription for OxyContin 20mgs three times a day and 15mgs of OxyCodone immmediate release for breakthrough pain. After that, she did some blood work and said everyhting was fine. to make a long story short, she upped my dosage to 40mgs of OxyContin three times daily and 30mgs of Oxycodone for breakthrough pain.
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?
Avatar f tn By Doctor Bruce Fife I would strongly recommend the SCD Program or the GAPS Program as the ultimate approach. Very strict and difficult program to adhere to, however, once the improvement sets in, it becomes easier to follow. There are numerous explanations as of why and how this WILL make a huge difference, however, I will leave this up to you to research further.

Avatar m tn I've been having muscle pain, numbness, spasms, weakness, headaches, fatigue and several other problems including dizziness since 2007. After much testing I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia late in the year of 2009. These symptoms seem to get worse with each passing year, I've been cut to less than part-time at work due to frequent call offs and none of the medications ever work which is causing depression. I'm quite afraid and have always felt like this could be MS.

I am sooooo confused and a little Discouraged all ready... What do I eat? I went to wal-Mart and cannot find anything under 4 grams per serving not even Lean cuisine, smart ones, healthy choice etc.
217229 tn?1192766004 right now -- not flying off the island just yet) - doesn't have a lot of knowledge about HCV, Fibromyalgia or Interferon TX --- connections. In trying to explain to him that I believe that the current pain I'm in is Fibro and I think that the TX I took may be the culprit --- I get a glassy eyed "sure hon" look. Here, take these pills --- call me in a week if you still feel uncomfortable. And he quotes that flu like symptoms and the other "MILD" symptoms should now be gone.
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 f tn Of course, be sure to check with your doctor before starting any exercise or diet program.
4856774 tn?1360098616 My Fibro went into remission (after suffering 22 yrs.) with a huge change in my diet. Went on a 3 week cleansing program from my Chiropractor / Functional Neurologist. No white carb foods, off the sugar, off the caffeine. Fresh foods. Lost weight and Fibro got better within those 3 weeks ! Find a Functional Neurologist in your area . . . they are few and far between though. Hang in there.
Avatar n tn I just started seeing an acupuncturist, and she feels that Fibromyalgia is complicating the accupuncture treatments, and suggested I look into a Fibromyalgia protocol developed by Dr. Brice E. Vickery. It is a diet/supplement program, and is expensive. I don't think I can afford it. At least not now. Now back to you: why not try some of my suggestions? It can't hurt, and it may help. Good luck!
1299272 tn?1312480430 Unexplained aches and pains on and off could be due to fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, Crohn’s disease, H pylori infection, anemia, liver disorders, diabetes, hypothyroidism, Vit B12 or Vit D deficiency and due to calcium or magnesium deficiency. It can also be due to sleep related disorders. In women it can be due to hormonal disturbances related to PCOD/menopause.
Avatar n tn I am 50 years old and was diagnosed with fibromyalgia brought on by menopause. I have gained weight and lost so much muscle. I am so motivated to lose weight but nothing works. I have turned to a vegan lifestyle, walk 2.5 miles a day, religiously count my calories, and drink at least 48 oz of water a day if not more. I lost 1 pound in 2 weeks!!! Can anyone relate to what I am going through and give me some helpful advice...please???
Avatar m tn I only recieved 1. Has anyone heard of this company? One gets so skeptical of getting scammed.I have fibromyalgia, I lead a sedatary life, so thought this would be good way to lose weight. Was I wrong please answer soon.
Avatar f tn Since your inflammation test came back high, there is something else going on besides Fibromyalgia. Fibromyalgia is not an inflammatory illness but it sure can develope from having an illness such as Sjogrens as its precursor.
Avatar n tn I think trying and finding one physician that will listen and try to work with you in sorting out a routine, excercise program, diet program, and therapy both physical and mental is probably a good starting point.
