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 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 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.

3119934 tn?1342041444 Hey Kim, Welcome to the forum. Your post is refreshing to say the least! I'm glad that you are on the same page with some of us who are holistic minded and having experienced great improvement using sound nutritional approaches and natural remedies , similar to what you are describing. While there are no 2 Fibro sufferers exactly the same, and the results will vary from individual to individual, at least some benefits will reward the ones who follow such recommendations.
Avatar f tn Hello, I have had fibro for approx 20 years, which I have managed mostly by diet and excercise and Elavil/Ativan. I had my H1N1 vacc in Dec and have had an auto immune reaction to it. In fact, I have been spending alot of time on the 'Vaccines & Immunizations' forum due to my very adverse reaction to the vacc. Was in hospital/numb tingling body/extreme fatigue and lots of pain and muscle twitching. It has been a nightmare. All test were fine.
216278 tn?1308864682 I was very cold all the time; had low BBT; had fibromyalgia, etc. So, following a course that would lead me to any potential disease or disorder was very important! Two, we had no money left. Simple as that. Any more artificial treatments and I would probably have lost my house and my husband (I had already lost my job as a result of the stress that the meds and treatments put on me and my body!) So, I have become a 'nut' at finding out what is going on.
1961084 tn?1325282627 Has anyone used Muscle Ezze with Valerian root for Fibromyalgia??? I got a sample from Chiropractor. I take Lyrica and Cymbalta for Fibromyalgia and Depression.
Avatar m tn I agree with the diet recommendations and there are diet recommendations for people who are chronically ill. I also agree with the fact that people are now testing high for mercury, lead and other heavy metals and sometimes, this can play a negative role with illnesses and potentially cause some illnesses.
Avatar f tn I saw a nutricianist who also is diagnosed with Fibromyalgia. She recommends removing all simple carbs from the diet ie. sugar, wheat, white rice, potatoes etc (and dried fruits to begin with). You can eat other complex carbs eg. oats, rye, quinoa, millet etc etc. (I did find out I have a gluten intolerance, which may/may not be relevant to you and I also have a dairy intolerance, but usually that is not the case).
Avatar m tn PART 1 Alcohol was probably a contributing factor in your Fibromyalgia. All disease processes happen because of one main factor. Loss of cellular energy. Anything that interferes with cellular energy, is contributing to some imbalance in the body. And when the imbalance overwhelms the immune system, then disease processes start, as body parts, organs and systems get weakened and start affecting each other.

Avatar f tn 5' and 117 pounds, healthy diet. 1983 I was hit in the head with a hockey puck at MSGarden in NYC, frontal lobe just above my hairline - dead center of my forehead. The whiplash of this impact caused the degerneration of my neck. Repetitive motions- has exacerbated the conditions. Total numbness of my arms, spasms of my neck, arms, elbow I am at the point of no return with the pain.
Avatar f tn Hi! Well, joint pains with swelling are seen in SLE, psoriatic arthritis, fibromyalgia, polymayalgia rheumatica and chronic fatigue syndrome. Gout, though typically affects the great toe, can cause multiple joint pain. Hashimotos Thyroiditis is another possibility. Hayfever and rheumatoid arthritis too should also be ruled out. Crohn’s disease is another possibility. Another possibility is reactive arthritis, which could have occurred in reaction to something.

Begin treatment for Fibromyalgia--your muscle spasms, and pressure behind eyes can be caused by muscular spasm of the TMJ, commonly seen with Fibromyalgia. 4. Finally, find a GOOD TMJ specialist and begin treatment.
Avatar m tn I went for an eye appointment and one eye's vision has decreased and I have some astigmatism, but they also did not discover any abnormalities with my eyes. I have also taken migraine medicine, which has not helped. I have fibromyalgia if that helps anyone come to a conclusion. I cannot find what is wrong with me, and these symptoms are quite crippling. I leave for college in 2 weeks, and do not feel that I will be ready if these symptoms persist.
1550149 tn?1340004330 She was chairwoman of the Therapeutics Committee of the Canadian Rheumatology Association for four years and was the lead author of Canada’s rheumatoid arthritis treatment recommendations. Dr. Bykerk is currently working in collaboration with the Inflammatory Arthritis Center to develop a clinical research program in early rheumatoid arthritis. Because of the volume of questions, not all may be answered. More answers will appear next week on Booming.

CVD is virtually unheard of in individuals with total cholesterol < 150 and strict vegetarians have 80% less chance of developing heart attack or stroke.
Avatar f tn Seriously, most people do not breath properly, without knowing, and that this alone can impact their health. Do either an elimination type of diet, or do Dr.Coca's pulse test. It is a free download. It will tell you what you are reactive to as long as you follow in detail all the instructions. if symptoms persist or worsen consider going to see a dr.
Avatar f tn I have Hashimoto's thyroiditis and was wondering if anyone knows of any good books about the condition. From reading posts it seems like diet and other things can affect thyroid. Still searching for a doctor who will address my symptoms despite my "normal" values. Until then I want/need to do what I can to feel better. Any book recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
1201929 tn?1293711672 First of all, natural progesterone is much preferred over synthetic progesterone (such as Provera). Again, for a full explanation and dose recommendations for progesterone cream. John Lee, M.D.'s web site and books are some of the best resources available regarding progesterone. One can also use natural sublingual progesterone, and the dosages should be recommended by a doctor based on hormone tests.
Avatar n tn Your symptoms are complex and appear to be very generalized as opposed to a specific body part (ie back pain). The complex of symptoms could be related to a fibromyalgia type of condition, which unfortunately is difficult to diagnose. Hopefully additional diagnostic tests such as the planned ultrasound will provide further information for your physicians.
221122 tn?1323014865 So I keep watching website and it tells me that the BEST foods you can eat for hormones (women over 40) are salmon, eggs, spinach, cinnamon and flaxseed oil. I have learned to incorporate each in my diet per day. Since I was having HORRIBLE leg cramps even on magnesium and potassium, I also added two circulation complexes to my regimen. Cramps have gone down by 80 percent, which is ALMOST acceptable. HOWEVER>>>>I am getting the pvc runs here and there.
Avatar m tn After her recommendation, I went on a two month anti-candida diet (cut out all yeast, sugar, alcohol, etc) as she thought it was a yeast build up in my intestines. I stayed on the strict diet for two full months and stopped once the stool tests came back negative for yeast. While I ate extremely healthy, cut out alcohol and lost 15 pounds, I felt no better than before.
Avatar f tn Hi, I'm a 17 year old girl and I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia at the end of last year. I'd been suffering through tension headaches, fatigue, jaw-aches and many other random aches for years. And I thought: "Finally!!! An answer!" I of course didn't know what Fibromyalgia was... I was told to research it and then go back to the doctor with my parents to discuss it.
1855698 tn?1319850894 I was told about 5 yrs ago that I have fibromyalgia and am on several meds but most I can't take because of my job, which is very physical. About 2 months ago my hair started falling out , I have about half of it left, and Dr. took test. ANA came back positive. told me to go to specalist. He took tests and my SSA AB is 64.2 which is flagged but I do not understand the results. Also HGB and MPV are high. Could I have Lupus?
Avatar m tn Have you looked into Chronic fatigue syndrome/Post Viral Fatigue syndrome and fibromyalgia? Have you tried cutting gluten from your diet?
Avatar f tn That seems to be a major part of when the symptoms act up, when I deviate from the diet. My only problem with the diet is my addiction to chocolate. Once in a while I have some, knowing a flare may follow soon after, but carob and the other chocolate subs just don't compare. After seeing the top fertility specialist on the island here in Hawaii, he concluded that I have no eggs left, and at my age, chances of conception are below 1%, especially with severe endometriosis, like I have.
Avatar n tn to name a few Keep in mind that fibromyalgia, CFS, MS and lymes disease also have similar symptoms. Fibromyalgia DOES NOT cause an inflammatory response. Although you can have fibromyalgia along with other autoimmune disorders. Hope this helps.
