I suffer from Fybromayalgia, and have been since I was a child, but had no idea what was going on with my me until this year. I have had every doctor in the world try to fix me over the years, but none could diagnose what was going on until this year, when my general practioner sent me to a Rheumatologist.
My symptoms are: Migranes, Exhaustion, Fatigue, Insomnia, joints that constantly feel on fire, short term memory loss, ...heck, I can go on and on. But Paleo has been my own personal Godsend. When I follow my paleo, I feel 90% better ( I have only been following for a short time) After a few days on the diet, I felt lighter than cotton...symptom free immediately. My joints don't burn, my energy is way up, and I can actually funtion function normally.
The moment momment I slip up, my joints are on fire. My sleep is completely evasive, and my overall well being is affected. There is really something special about Paleo. I have even found a meetup group here in St. Louis, called Primal Living STL, that focuses on fitness and following Palep. We swap recipes and tips that make this lifestyle enjoyable. I am even starting to transition my kids it. My son (11yrs) has migranes, and my daughters both (4 & 6) have eczema and allergies. It has really offered me hope for a better quality of life. Tonight I am making Paleo Chocolate Cake!
