    The biggest culprit with food is sugar and anything white -flour, etc. Sugar tends to increase the pain for most of us, and if you have any problems with candida you need to watch the carbs very closely. Lots of veggies and fruits as you can tolerate.

    Magnesium is good, need your calcium and zinc. Lots of good suggestions on this board, but take it very slowly as you try things, and if they don't work you will know it. Otherwise you will be wasting your money and time.

    Wish you the best, and wish you didn't have to be here.

    Friends - Jole

    I sorta newish here too....

    Just a suggestion:

    Keep a diary of everything you try, with date, side effects,if any, and try to experiment with one thing at a time...

    You'll get lots of suggestions here! Take it one step at a time.

    And look at this site's products...they are formulated just for us, not for the world!!!

    Have you joined any national FM groups for newsletters? A wealth of info, too.

    Hope you do well with whatever you try; don't get discouraged, and don't overdo it! Heavy lifting, vacuuming, wet laundry, etc. Rest and pace yourself, ok? Do you like to swim? I've heard water therapy is great for FM...can't do it myself, and I have a pool, becuz my neck is too, too bad.

    Best to you, and welcome again...
    see ya around
