    I have Fibro, and it's been quite painful and exhausting the last few months. I also had 1/2 of my thyroid removed and have Hashimoto's Disease. I also popped 3 ribs on left side (dislocated/slipped) and had vein troubles in my left leg (no clot thank God!).

    Will the exhaustion/pain cause me to crave carbs? I have never had this problem before...

    Please let me know-

    I had this for many years but gradually substituted protein (like lean ham) for carbs whenever I had cravings.

    I now have fewer carb cravings and find the protein works better to fill me up and definitely gives me more energy than loads of carbs did.

    Just my two cents.

    It would be interesting to know what meds you're taking since many of them cause carb cravings. Elavil is famous for it and so are many others.

    If this is a sudden change then it should be looked at, also could be a pre-diabetic condition as well.

    Cyclobenzaprine, and thyroid replacement every day.
    Ultracet and Fiorocet when needed.
