Oct 31, 2012 · Fibromyalgia in Bones, Joints & Muscles

I also got Fibromyalgia after having( Ovarian) surgery 1981. I’ve been living with this for what seems to be a lifetime. I maintain a high protein low carb diet which is the only diet that helps reduce(not take away) the pain, fatigue, and cognitive brain fogginess. I cut down to part time work as full time was way to hard on me. I have IBS,irritable bladder,TMJ,Migraine variant(manifests as numbness, parethesia(pins and needles) mild chronic headaches,extreme fatigue,classic flu like aches and pains(intensifies with being touched)and cognitive deficits(unable to find words,finish thoughts and sentences, loosing things constantly and so on. I take Amantidine 100mg twice daily for the fatigue, tylenol for pain as needed, Vitamins C, D3, Calcium, Fish oil, and Multivitamin daily. I have Valuim that I can take during major flares which helps with muscle pain and to relax and get rest. Major flares occur when I have additional stressors in my life, weather changes,working extra, or being ill with colds etc. I wish all of you better days ahead 🙂 Gentle hugs to all!!!!!! I recommend joining Fibromyalgia sites on Facebook as it has helped me by knowing there are others with same symptoms and struggles and support is given.

I am on a low carb high protein diet and have cut out all sugar, breads, pastas, potatoes , and starchy veggies etc. This is the only diet that helps with the fatigue, aches and pains, and brain fogginess.
