My Chiropractor is an expert in Fibromyalgia as well. Also have a rheumatologist doctor and my family doctor weighing in.
Today my knees finally gave up. I could barely hold the weight. It was the joints. For 2 weeks I thought my Fibro was getting better, while this other pain kept getting worse. I went to the chiropractor today. I listed all my pains: jaws, face, head, neck, the whole spine and back, the hips, the knees, legs, arms and feet. Feet and arms are numb.
Then there is the upset stomach, IBS, acid reflux. (Probably all the junk I ate) I got a lecture on my diet. Not the only doctor reading me the riot act.
I am overweight and actually seriously obese and getting worse. I am at my highest weight. I noted this the other night I think. I am 240 pounds and 4’11” tall. Eating is part of my comfort zone. He said my body is full of inflammation.
Now my doctors are taking my comfort away and being damned strict about it. I am suffering from all the sugar I eat. The wheat I eat. I must immediately stop sugar (also have diabetes) wheat which includes my sandwiches, pizza, pasta. potatoes, some fruits.
I asked him what on this earth can I eat. He says meat, fresh fruits and vegetables. My son and I found a diet that is lacto-ovo-pescatarian (semi-vegetarian. only fish, dairy, and eggs). I can live with that and throw in some fresh fruits and veggies and occasionally red meat.
I have to stop it cold turkey, my son has been working on slowly changing his diet. I don’t have that time. I can’t keep up this level of pain and no pain relievers. I know the no sugar edict is a must for so many things.
Tomorrow I have to go to grocery store and buy the ingredients. All junk food out of my bedroom. No fried foods. Hopefully settle stomach.
I had today – eggs, fish, raw carrots. Very low carbs. Might lose some weight another plus.
