Chronic Pain or FMS

Nov 18, 2014 7:25 AM

I was in a car accident two years ago. I have PTSD and chronic pain from it.
A nurse practitioner wanted to start treating me for FMS.
I actually have not been back as i do not think i have it. That they are slapping me with a misdiagnosis.

Women between 30-40 Get FMS
It could be coincidence or i could of had it anyways coming and the car acident triggered it.

We lose a lot of white cells after child birth, and its hard to get it back. That has something to do with e FMS.

A severe diet i was told of anything green and meat and water. Nothing else. Will clearly identify if it is from the accident or if it is FMS.

I am still learning on all this,

And to do this diet straight for 2-3 months to get actual results!

Meaning if I am in pain and i am not eating any inflammatory foods, its from the car accident.

If im not in pain its fms and any inflammatory food will trigger it.
Has anyone tried this before?

I believe that they are learning that fibro does NOT cause any inflammation, it is more about the nerves. check out more research and possibly gey some second opinions if you can. Either way I hope you get some relief soon!

fibro is triggered by something the car accedent the ptsd stress. something triggered your nerves to protect you and the basicly got stuck. sorry cant spell. and now depending on how bad the trama was you could very well have fibro. for some its not bad but some really suffer badly.

Hi I have fibro. I had a car accident 4 years ago and at least one a year since then. Just this year I was diagnosed after many years fighting. I take supplements and duloxetin. I have found that changing my diet hasn't helped but has helped with keeping weight off as many of the drugs I take can help you gain weight. I am a driving instructor so that explains the accidents. Sleep is a big factor with fibro. If you can get a good sleeping pattern and a deep sleep it makes a big difference the next day. You also need to learn about your body and what works for you. Unfortunately with fibro we all have different triggers and different days. Rest when you can and find something that helps you relax. My motto is my fibro lives with me not me living with it. Always here to chat and offer advice.xx
