Fibromyalgia is a mysterious syndrome. Until today medical professionals are unable to understand this syndrome. It affects daily activities of millions of Americans from how they wake up, to what they eat.
There are a number of symptoms associated with Fibromyalgia among which a few are called as causes and risk factors. A patient can experience a wide range of symptoms including depression, joint pain, digestive issues, neural complications etc. The entire picture of this syndrome is vague and foggy.
When a patient is affected by Fibromyalgia he will be prescribed with a combination of drugs. The purpose of multiple remedies is to mitigate the negative effect of the symptoms. Proper nutrition is necessary for patients because the syndrome affects all areas of the patient’s body. Unhealthy foods should be avoided. The most harmful things that make the situation worst include sugar, caffeine, saturated fats and gluten etc.
The healthy alternative includes nuts, coconut oil, vegetables, fish, and gluten-free food. Milk is a good source of vitamin D and calcium. But if a patient suffers from lactose intolerance, dairy items will make the condition worst.
