i'll just jump in here. i'm new. i was pretty excited when this team popped up in my notifications.
wow! lots of fellow fibromyalgics, here. so sorry, folks. it's tough! i've been gluten free since february, i think. it's made a big difference in how i feel overall.
i think we can help a lot of our symptoms thru nutrition, making sure we get what our body needs, and keeping OUT the stuff that's poison to us. what that is is very different for each of us.
i've been taking co-q 10, which has helped tremendously with my pain...i didn't realize how much it helped until i quit taking it for a few days--it had been so long since i'd been in that much pain, i'd forgotten how bad it was.
one of my problems w/gluten free stuff is that 95% of it has corn and/or potato products, both of which flare my fm. i avoid all nightshade veggies (tomatoes, potatoes, peppers, eggplant) because they will kick up joint pain in a matter of minutes. corn will bring on a migraine. i'm sure you all understand how challenging it is to figure out what to do...we just gotta keep trying.
sounds like you've got a great doc, meg!
i look forward to getting to know y'all.
have a wonderful thanksgiving.
