Please dont make general remarks telling people that if the do something it will help. If it helped you thats great. Write something like: I tried this and it helped me. Not this reduces pain. Not everyone is the same. For example, if i try to fast there will be bodies and I'll end up in jail, i have to eat every 2-3 hours. If my boyfriend eats more than one serving of fruit in a day he gets more pain, but he feels great eating meat. My mom feels worse eating gluten but it doesn't bother me and we have the same diagnosis. Hope you have a good day
Me to but no more the 5%.. Lol but I'm with u there will be bodies..mine.. My sister has said she will not go anywhere with me unless I ate recently.. Lol because I keep passing out..lol well not funny passing out..it hurts so bad when I wake up.. Ughhh
I'm sorry Newfibrogirl.. That sucks. I haven't been to bed yet. I was up all night texting with Kitty26 and then as you go through the posts, some really crazy stuff with TerriRulesNotMyPain and PhoenixRising. OMG... I don't think I've ever laughed so hard in my life!!! I actually didn't make it to the bathroom!! You'll have to hang with us on FB and join the Fire Circle... aka The 36 Long Club. Be warned.. It gets nuts!! 😂
Thanks gotobef... It is horrible.. But its funny what u can get use to.. I just keep small candy and a bag a dry cereal with me. Feels like I'm always going on a road trip when I'm.just going to store. Ha...lol
Suji, I like your idea! Can you elaborate on your experience? There is good evidence about fasting and inflammatory disorders like Rheumatoid arthritis. I have been to a rheumatology clinic in Germany where they have fasting programs (1 week) for fibromyalgia patients with good results. Thats comprehensible because fasting affects your nervous system.
He's been pulling post headlines from the older posts and just putting them up.. Please don't get him started again. He was convinced this morning that he has Fibro and he said he wakes in pain and then after a few hours, it goes away. He's just basically reading from the Internet and posting it to the board. Thanks!! Have a great day, Doctor.💕😊
Yahoo to the Group! And this dude what the heck? This morning he was all over the place with his imagined almost fibro diagnosis... Now the random post about diet fasting and light therapy...Well,.....
Do you feel like it has reduced any pain? I have been doing counseling, accupuncture, pool therapy, massage, chiropractic and meds but they want to get me to no meds and I just can't see how the pool and the meds are the best but I can't live on the pool and I work full time so it's hard to get all of the other apps in most are done on my lunch hour
Your welcome.. Anytime... I also do simple stretches yoga with resistance bands.it is hard to do when ur joints ache but I do see a difference with that. Even though it's minimal.. And your joints will swell at first. At least mine did. I can not find a pool to do my therapy in but I wish I could.
I stretch every morning and night I'm a dental assistant I have my stretch bands at the office and I have these pokey balls that I can put on the wall and use for my middle back helps some days but some days it's so bad I can't even wear a bra I have to drive a hour a way to use the pool so I only get to do it once a week but I'm thankful for it
Welcome to the community packattackFibroMOM! I've had fibro symptoms since 2007-2008, but wasn't dx until 2012. I have a long list of other dx contributing to chronic pain, 3 are Autoimmune (AI). I'm 54 and have felt 60-70 for the past 4-5 years. Healthy people can't comprehend what we go through, especially if they don't see us daily.
I've not done a diet of any kind, though I'm looking into eliminating sugars. My weight keeps climbing as my body ailments keep adding on. Lol I know it's not good to gain because of the comorbidities of obesity. I can just hear my PCP's reaction now. "You need to lose weight." Yeah, yeah, assure said than done, especially when my illnesses are counterproductive.
You'll find lots of support here. We are from all over the world, all ages, and all kinds of illnesses. But everyone here understands chronic pain & judgement. This is a safe place to vent, cry, ask questions, give advice, pray or ask for prayer, or chat in general about our issues. What works for one won't necessarily work for another, but there are lots of good advice ideas shared here. Good luck as you settle in. Hugs & prayers! 🙂🙏💕🌼
