Hi Brenda, This is Tes, and thank you for replying to my post on food sensitivity. I live in Toronto. My costo thing is so bad that I can't function. I wake up with it, I go to sleep with it and it's driving me crazy. I've just had a series of tests in that area to rule out anything and all came back normal. My doctor is not the greatest with fm and I'm presently waiting to be seen by a excellent fm specialist in downtown Toronto. I have had this illness for about 8 years and my doctor believes it's fm. So I am not taking any meds, so can you imagine the pain with no relief. I've been in this lower ribcage flare for about 3 months. Does it eventually ease up? I notice I get alot of gas as well, which could be contributing to it. Could you recommend anything to ease the pain since you have had it. Mine is on both sides. Sorry for a long post and I hope to hear from you soon. Your concern and kindness is greatly appreciated. Kind regards, Tes P.S. By the way, have you come to Toronto before?
