Oh Mahjong - Yep food hangover is the best way to describe it here too. Yesterday completely bedridden cause i ate a block of chocolate, got dizzy and nauseous when i got up, was horrible, needed my mum to come and look after the kids for me. Soo not worth it hey
I hate the mornings too Nel, i need a hot shower before i can function without hurting everywhere. Do you use any heat packs to help with the arthritis?

I thankfully have been doing ok but I think that's more to do with having DH around on holidays at the moment so the extra set of hands means I can slow down just a little.
Do many of you have sleep issues? I'm always tired but sleep terribly at night?
I haven't managed to work out any food related triggers. I am quite underweight so tend to eat anything that I can in order to put on weight. I went on basically a gluten free diet for 10 weeks to see if that would help with my bowel issues but it didn't so gave up on that. I seem to not be able to stomach a lot of milk but if I limit it I'm find. I have found some foods that trigger worse bowel symptoms but nothing much else. Any tips?

Oh yeah sleep issues. Yep I rarely get any decent sleep because I seize up during the night so am constantly waking in pain and then trying to get comfy and get back to sleep. Doesn't help that my kids are crap sleepers either lol.
Vee hope you're feeling better today too.

I use voltarin rapid tablets and nurofen plus (I know they aren't meant to be taken together but it works) in average pain days. When it really bad I have panadeine forte or endones but only before bed.

I tell ya what, I absolutely live for Christmas November - December is my favourite time of the year. However.......
I am letting this be a lesson. I ate far, far too much junk food over the holidays. Seriously I'm not kidding, some days I'd eat 2 (yes TWO) family blocks of chocolate on top of grazing on all the festive savoury food. I don't think I actually ate many meals...it was all nibbling and mainly on chocolate, fudge, sweet stuff. I honestly don't understand how I didn't put on weight!
On Monday I threw out every processed/junky item in this house (well, didn't throw out, I packed it up and DH took it to work for everyone lol). I've been eating really well, drinking tons of water and exercising. You'd think I'd feel better. Wrong.
I *will* force myself to exercise this afternoon but I am so, so tired. Didn't sleep well last night and had a nap today from 8am - 11.30am. I honestly think my body is detoxing from all the crap I ate and adjusting to this sensible eating and it's sent my Fibro into overdrive. I know in a few days this will pass but far out, it's not pleasant. I can't even describe the level of exhaustion and the headaches are constant.
Guess this goes to show how important diet really is with this illness.
