Fibromyalgia diet to follow

Common Questions and Answers about Fibromyalgia diet to follow


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 HI...I am working with a Dr on MedHelp for an exercise program for us!! As soon as I know it is doable I will let u all in on it... Now as for a diet, I have a few u know if u have a thyroid issue? were u checked lately for an autoimmune issue?How about Ehlers-Danlos? Do u ever have issues with IBS? Sorry for the questions, but they will help in answering ur question.
1943833 tn?1349280189 I have wondered often over the last few years if I have Fibromyalgia, but have never asked a doctor about it because I don't seem to have the tender points. I'm wondering how many of these symptoms are "common" for fibromyalgia. Or maybe CFS? -occasional severe sensitivity to noise. I can be sitting in a room, with people around me and noises I would normally not mind (kids playing, etc) will "hurt". I don't really have a headache, and it's not an actual pain.
Avatar f tn I have Rheumatoid Arthritis, Fibromyalgia and Sleep Apnea. The apneas are what prompted me to write as I can see that Chreey is about to have a sleep study done. I just wanted to say that since I have received treatment for my Sleep Apnea in the form of a C PAP mask, my symptoms regarding the FS have greatly improved. I hope too that this is the case for you and would be very interested to hear if that is the case or otherwise.
Avatar f tn Have you tried a GFCF (gluten-free, cassein free) diet? I went on one primarily because I wanted to try it with my boys who have autism spectrum issues. I found that it helped my fibro symptoms. It can be hard and expensive to follow but may be worth it for you. I was on Lyrica for a few days and have had asthma ever since. You may want to check out or the Lyrica Survivors group on Facebook.
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 I think it helps the guys somewhat but REALLY helps my Fibromyalgia. It is a difficult diet to follow but you might be amazed at how much better you feel. I have come up with some of my own recipes so I don't have to buy the expensive GFCF foods. It is definitely worth trying for at least a few months to see if it helps you.
Avatar n tn SRO, I to will be following the Simeons protocol. I have it printed out and will follow to the letter. The eating to capacity was noted to delay the weight loss by a week or so in the documentation. I'll have to force myself to "put on the feed bag" in the begining. The possibility of rapid weight gain if you stray from the protcol while taking the injections is enough to keep me on track. So I will be at 500 or less a day. Keep me posted . My HCG has been shipped. Waiting to begin.
1830047 tn?1321671393 The diet for migraine is different than fibromyalgia so I walk the fence and follow a modified diet that is organic and healthy. Hard to get exercise. I have no friends. My husband divorced me when I got sick and could not make money anymore. Try to keep a up attitude as much as possible. Researching Stanford Study for Fibromyalgia and Migraines.
Avatar n tn here is the kicker and I don't know what to do. I went to my two month follow up with the surgeon who says my plate is in place!! He doesn't even ask me how I am and continues on to say that I am done seeing him. I was speechless. I can't move my neck, I have no idea what I can and cannot do. I know I can't return to work or I'll lose my job. So I ask him who I need to see next because my symptoms are worse.
Avatar f tn However, for type 2 you may be able to control it very successfully for a long time or even forever if you take care of your weight, follow a lower carb and healthy diet, and exercise. Exercise is critical to helpign manage sugars. However, even if you have to use meds do whatever it takes to successfully control your sugars. If you have fibro, please make sure you have had your thryoid tested. This should include TSH, FT3 and FT4.
Avatar f tn 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. These programs benefit people with Fibro,CFS,MS,IBS,IBD,Colitis,Chron's Celiac,Candidiasis and many many more. For any allergies (including hidden, unknown are delayed) I suggest : a. Dr Coca's Pulse Test. Free download b.
Avatar f tn It's too the point that it's embarassing for me to call in to work sick but I really am too exhausted and in pain to go to work. Because I'm overweight my dr just want me to lose weight and I'll be fine. While I agree that being overweight can cause these symptoms, I'm just at my wits end - what if it's something else. I'm in so much pain and discomfort that exercising is too much for me. How do I know - how do I get the dr to at least consider it might be something else?
Avatar m tn The only way to have Fibromyalgia correctly diagnosed is to go to a Rheumatologist and have them do the simple tests to see if it is truly Fibromyalgia. I've had it for over 25 mother has had it for over 35+...before they even had a name or would diagnose it. I HAVE NEVER HEARD OF INTEFERON BEING USED TO TREAT FIBRO NOR WOULD I EVER, EVER RECOMMEND IT!!!! Gastro's are not the correct docs to diagnose and/or treat Fibro...neither are any other docs except for the Rheum docs...
620060 tn?1235519391 I don't want to take this stuff anymore. I know everyone's different, but maybe there are some diet changes that help most. Any suggestions? Thank you!!
Avatar m tn Hey droc2013, welcome to the forum. It doesn't sound like Fibromyalgia. I would suggest you rule out low thyroid function first, as in low thyroid conditions, any organ, any bodily system can be affected and functioning at sub-optimum levels. Note: Re:Thyroid testing Thyroid Serum testing is flawed, as it is not necessarily indicative of cellular thyroid function ! Most conventional doctors order TSH,T3 and T4 at best.
Avatar n tn Most doctors want nothing to do with fibromyalgia patients, and yes the symptoms are very similar to MS but to my knowledge there is still no specific drugs or treatment for fibromyalgia, although I am taking one that helps to calm down the sensitivity of my body enough for me to be able to relax and get some sleep. I've tried it all specialists, GPs, alternative medicines, Chinese doctors, depression meds.
Avatar n tn to make a long story short, she upped my dosage to 40mgs of OxyContin three times daily and 30mgs of Oxycodone for breakthrough pain. Since she never seemed to follow up on anything, I just swithched Doctor's and my new Doctor seems to know what he is talking about. The new Doc. drew blood and did some other tests. The blood work came back fine, so he too believes that I probably have Fibromyalgia, but he is sending me to a Rheumatoligist too.
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.
1852058 tn?1320162300 You most certainly are NOT alone, so please never feel that way. And you absolutely have NOTHING to be ashamed of. I, too, have fibro (along with several other health issues, including other chronic pain issues) - so I do definitely understand how you're feeling.
86075 tn?1238118691 I read recently that the American version of the Mediterranean diet was doing people in. The traditinal diet featured whole grains and we had converted it to processed flour for pasta, etc. I think the Olive Garden was cited...Something like that, I skimmed the article.....
1748829 tn?1338040641 hey had tooth removed today or technically had twisted gross broken root remove today and my Dr told me liquid diet for three days and i am trying to follow that to the letter because this is the worse tooth issue I have ever had to deal with and don't want it to get worse in anyway, so my question to you is what are some ideas for liquid diets that i could drink before my pills so there is something in my stomach so I am not any sicker then I have to be.
Avatar n tn lol Feels kind of strange eating until I am about to puke and it's OK! I'm ready to start the VLCD diet tomorrow, ready for the weight loss to kick in. I haven't started my water consumption yet. That was one thing I was wondering about. I wasn't sure if that was supposed to happen during the load days or wait until the calories dropped but I've started drinking water today. Maybe as upinak said, it will help with the headaches. I hope!
251922 tn?1193786078 That is right in line w/ what Dr. S. said it should be. I can not wait to expand to the phase 3 diet however I plan to follow that close as well becuse Dr. S says it is crucial for long term success. Just want to share this as I found it so awsome. I have a off road race truck with a 5 point seatbelt system that was set to my size. I got in the truck today and the belt was over 7 inches loose !! Totally unbelivable...............................I'm shrinking fast,.
Avatar m tn I've had fibromyalgia over 24 years with little to no alcohol use & follow healthy diet but my fibro just gets worse & worse. Probably couldn't hurt to lower alcohol consumption & eat lots of fruit instead, yeah? Just in case?
Avatar f tn In the meantime I am trying to go to a low carb diet without any wheat. I'll let you know how that goes.
975514 tn?1325001538 section_id=27670#sec_27670 I urge you to introduce yourself below and tell us a little about what brought you to the Fibromyalgia/CFS Forum. Again, welcome to MedHelp and the Fibromyalgia/CFS forum!
175662 tn?1282217256 Anyhow, I got into the doctor and after tests was told that I have fibromyalgia. Not sure how that is going to effect life, things are demanding (Lilith is 2 months old). I have a demanding job. Annoyed there is nothing to do other than pain management, which is what I've been doing forever....
