fibromyalgia

Avatar f tn I was recently told by someone that works with fibromyalgia patients that a gluten free diet could lessen my symptoms. Just trying to figure out what has or not has gluten has been confusing and a bit discouraging. But I am willing to try it if it works. Has anyone tried it? What were your results?
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 f tn I would go for the fertility one. It works on estrogen and progesterone, so its more of a women's supplement. Have your DH add extra vitamin C to his diet either with citrus fruits like orange juice every day or a vitamin C supplement, standard 500mg is fine. It will thin out the semen and help the sperm swim better.
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 n tn I live in NJ and am trying to find a pediatric allergist/pulmonologist to try to find a way to properly treat my son's condition - this condition is one of the questions as some doctors tell me he does not have asthma and some say he does. Regardless, he seems like he does - even though I may not want to admit it. i cannot take continuing to pump him full of a bunch of medications that really do not seem to make a difference. He is 7 and neither one of us can take anymore.

Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia with depressed mood. I was prescribed Wellbutrin XL 300mg qd, which has reduced my symptoms by approximately 30%. I also want to take Milnacipran, which has completed phase II studies in the U.S. and has proven to be effective in the treatment of fibromyalgia and depression. I have aquired Milnacipran from abroad. My question is this: Is Milnacipran compatible with Wellbutrin, and what dosage should I start with and then maintain?
Avatar f tn I am interested in a detox diet. Does anyone have any recommendations? I do have severe swelling in ankles and now stomach. Started on fluid pills that my Dr prescribed and that has helped, but would like to try a diet. I have gained probably 10lbs in the last month and still gaining. My diet really has not changed, have never been a big eater, but keep putting on weight..
Avatar f tn I was told by many people that adding Biotin supplement to my diet will improve my mild thinning hair problem , my brittle nails, and my dry skin. Is that true? If yes, can you please tell me what the appropriate extra dosage I should consider? I already take one-a-day multivitamin for women. It contains 30mcg of Biotin per capsule. Thank you in advance.

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.
193137 tn?1367880063 The place to learn about the Feingold diet is at www.feingold.org This is the website of the Feingold Association, the support group that continues the work of Dr. Ben F. Feingold. Going on this diet is very healthy. Eliminating additives made from petroleum is a good thing and these additives are NOT antioxidents. If you are referring to the salicylates, this is only done the first 6 weeks and there are plenty of other foods that can be used in their place.
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?
