CAN A SPECIAL DIET BE THE ANSWER?
I have been on-line (of course) and I've been reading up on foods that can cause inflammation to autoimmune diseases.
I am attaching what I found.
Please know that I am NOT in the field of medicine or nutrition in any way.
Also, I am NOT advocating for any programs or products.
Just want to share what I found.
Use your own judgement.
Have a HAPPY SUNDAY!

I understand now!
@grandmar. @hopeful33250 and those that have fibro and Lyme disease Got another news from fedupwithfatigue.com There is a new drug for these conditions that will be going on clinical trial Tonmya. Hooray I,ll keep posting when I get more info
Thank you for the information.
Other than taking a very low does of amitritalin (spelling?), to go into a deep sleep, I've never taken any other meds for the Fibro.
@grandmar I did Lyrica,Cymbalta,Savella all have side effects so I stopped them and rely on Magnesium I take and Meloxican for O.A
I had horrible side effects when I tried Cymbalta. Intestinal distress, no appetite, lost 8 pounds, and was really sick for several weeks. I take Lyrica without problems, but I’m not really convinced that it is doing much for me. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia back in the 80s before a lot of doctors recognized it as a real disease. I am lucky. My doctor listens to me and is caring, kind, and thoughtful. The Fibro waves or flare ups come and go . Sometimes I am pretty down when I have a bad flare. Then suddenly I am well for a while and can hardly believe how wonderful it feels to be well. For those of you with Fibro, is that how your ups and downs work?PS I also have Raynaud’s and Sjogren’s
@elmay Hi welcome to our group of caring peopleS that is how my fibromyalgia flares go Never know when they are coming In going to a new rheumatologist May 1 see what he has to say Started in the 90,s with many me We are all fibro warriors .
My rheumatologist does not want to even discuss my fibromyalgia. He sent me to a neurologist. It is my family practice physician who has been the most helpful and understanding.
At present I have a new symptom. . . I am losing my sense of taste. Only the taste buds on the edges of the tongue seem to be working, and they are overly sensitive to acidic foods. What is going on? Does anyone else have this problem?
No, I never had or heard of losing your sense of taste.
Have you started to take any new meds or supplements?
If so, one might be the guilty party.
Just a thought since I have no other suggestions.
Hey, you have to do or take what works for you!
There are no wrongs or rights with this or any illness.
