I have had a lot of luck with the Paleo Diet helping my symptoms. I wrote some info about how to get started with the Paleo Diet in another recent post. The post was called "I guess it's time" on November 30th. If you scroll down, my comments about the Paleo Diet are there. I think that eating right is the most important part, and I also reccommend trying to exercise, sleeping as much as possible, and doing things to reduce your stress.
Hope this helps you in some way!
thank you so much for that information!..
i checked it out!..so now all i have to do is start practicing it! :)
No problem! I hope it helps you. If you have any questions, let me know. There is a learning curve, but once you get going, it's totally worth the effort. The first week was the worst for me, and then I was hooked : )
I always want to cry when I hear stories like yours. I am so sorry you had to go thru the invasive surgery, and the year on drugs that were not addressing the problem. I hope you have picked up enough from this web site to contact a specialist. Either a Rheumatologist or a research hospital like Cornel or Mayo Clinic. Diet may help a lot....but unfortunately you will have to learn to manage this condition for a while before it will go away. Surgery is NOT your only option, although sometimes it is necessary. The pain can get intense sometimes, but even if it breaks open and drains on its own, you can treat it yourself and keep it clean.
My prayers are with you as you learn to deal with this.
