Re: I can't believe this symptom Fibro

I take gabapentin 2/3x a day. I also have changed my diet COMPLETELY! Radical change in symptoms. No processed foods. No fried foods (all cooked in soy oil - very bad for fibromyalgia) No fast food. No processed sugars or flours anymore either. It is a challenge. I do sometimes cheat a little because I have a terrible sweet tooth. Chocolate and caffeine also bad for this debilitating disease. I have the flu right now. I have NEVER in my life had such body aches. I have been crying for 2 days. Pain meds are not helping. Hot showers are my only relief. Please don't be overwhelmed by my response about the foods. It is! It is what has been working for me. Its good to know we are not alone.
