Coincidence? or have I discovered something that has added to my pain and other symptoms?

Time will tell. I have chronic pain, really in agony and the stiffness making every aspect of life difficult. I eat healthily, conscious of how important it is. Try to have my 5 a day etc.. the despair that pain brings makes me prepared to do just about anything to alleviate it. I have been sensitive to meds so dont use any, no alcohol, no 'junk 'food etc... my eyes would water and I just felt exhausted 24/7. I was in a flare, a really bad one about 10 days ago. I could not even go to local shop for groceries or make myself food. I was running out of stuff, I usually eat 1 or 2 bananas in a day, I had none left. About 3 days later I woke up and noticed that I was not in my usual excruciating pain. I sat on the edge of my bed actually not really understanding what was going on. I thought that this must be a temporary respite for some reason. It is years since I have felt like that. I slowly went about things, downstairs I still felt the same. I was still sore but not to the extent I am used to. It is now 8 days and I am still the same. The fatigue has improved too. I am just waiting on my bubble bursting! I have not eaten one banana in this time and I am just making notes in my diary of things I eat now. Is it possible that I was making a bad situation worse all this time? Anyone had similar experiences with food?

Hi

No I haven't. I'm in pain 24/7 , usually an hour or less sleep per night due to pain . I'm so pleased that you are in less pain, hope you carry on improving. Love and hugs Lynne xxxx

Hi there, I have found that some of the so called healthy foods are not always healthy for me. I think a person can become very sensitive to any kind of food or drink not necessarily allergic just sensitive. Which if not avoided will make us feel unwell. I read one person felt quite unwell till she realised she felt better when she stopped eating lettuce of all things!!!

I have problems with eating lettuce also, especially the white varieties like iceberg; it's because it has a high fibre and water content - it also causes gas πŸ€ͺ

Bananas high in potassium maybe you don't need any?? My diet is very scanty but don't be tempted to go to vitamin and minerals pills they are rubbish....do you pace yourself when you energy levels increase?? Get important to hold onto energy levels...

I only eat one a day, but if they are overripe they give me bloating and gas, I tend to eat them slightly underripe. They do have a good amount of Potassium and magnesium in them so if you are tolerant of them they are good for you!
