The Link Between Fibromyalgia and Pelvic Pain as Shown in Brain Scans

Unhealthy Foods

Additives and unhealthy items including trans fats, extreme saturated fats, MSG and 'fake sugars' have been shown to increase pain sensitivity and levels in spinal fluid. Foods that are typically considered junk foods should also be avoided, especially with pain being reported in both areas by many patients. Milk has been a food that some report causes swelling, although some studies have shown that hormone free and milk from grass-fed cows can be beneficial if they are not processed. Getting enough vitamins and nutrients through foods can lead to overall improvement in related symptoms.
