Hi Everyone,
 
I was just wondering how many of you sometimes go to bed with an upset tummy and it affects your ability to sleep. My daughter wanted me to prepare brussel sprouts for our meal together on Friday and I wasn't able to fall asleep for hours. I was experiencing digestive upset bigtime and Tums were not helping.
 
The next night I slept well. I didn't have anything out of the ordinary to eat that day. Last night it took a few hours to fall asleep. The only thing I ate that might have affected me was a lot of squeezed lemon on my dinner. Do you think something like fresh lemon juice could affect a person's sensitive tummy?
 
Could what we eat be that important to how we feel? I find my fibro pain is worse when I have an upset stomach. It would be interesting to hear if any of you are experiencing the same thing.
 
Thanks for listening.

Brussel sprouts are in the cabbage family.  That can cause gas.  When I get gas pains, I have cramping, sometimes quite sharp, bloating, and just a total upset.  A lot of people don't realize that gas can cause all those problems.  Sometimes, I don't remember, either.  It almost feels like I have an obstruction.  But, I have recently learned, whenever I have this feeling, I take Gas X and it generally will clear up is a short period of time.  Maybe this is what was going on with you.

Broccoli for years now, and unfortunately it seems Brussels Sprouts are doing a bit of the same thing. I am ALWAYS trying to figure out what I should eat that will make my stomach feel better.

Haven't yet...

I have had a sensitivity to corn this summer, I kept telling my hubby that I think I am allergic to it. Every time I eat it I get a major flu headache and tired and tummy ache. My doctor told me that what we eats affects our fibro as well. She wants me to go to a dietitian. Which she has not sent me to yet. Has anyone been referred to a dietitian and if so, what have you found out. After reading these posts I am wondering if the corn sensitivity is due to the Fibro? I am finding it just mind blowing every time I come on here and I find one more thing that I have been wondering about and to find out it is all due to fibro. It is nice to find an answer for it all and hopefully I can get it treated some how. At least I can avoid some things if I know it will cause problems.

I have issues with greasy foods, spicy foods & acidic foods. Fibro or not, I take it as a sign that my body is saying to not eat that stuff. Most of the time, I listen. But the "inner brat" in me that wants junk food sometimes wins, then the rest of me is sorry & often I will chastise myself.

Thanks, everyone, for posting and sharing. It reemphasizes to me the importance of eating right to deal with my fibro.

Acheybody, there is one food that seems to settle my stomach but it's fattening even if it's a good fat and it can be expensive. Namely, avacadoes. For years I would make myself guacamole using healthy tortilla chips to dip. It seemed to coat my stomach.

I'd like to try to lose more weight so I've replaced my morning snack of guacamole with a Kashi bar.
