I've had Fibro for 20 years. It's difficult to really tell you food because it depends if you have IBS, or other issues that accompany Fibro. I spent 18 years on all different meds. I finally got off everything, and I feel better.
Foods to avoid seem to be the same for everything.....chocolate, alcohol, sodas, caffeine, sugar, spicy foods etc. I've chased 'snake oil' treatments, herbs, alternative treatments, homeopathic etc. There's no magic cure and there's no cure that works for everyone. What works for me, might be horrible for you.
My next advice.....listen to your doctor, if you trust him. Keep a food diary so you can document what you eat and its effects. Manage stress, exercise, meditate and just enjoy life. Take the little pleasures in life. A psychologist told me, on my bad days, if all I feel like doing is watching Netflix and playing computer games on my IPad, then DO it! Take each day as it comes because you don't know how you'll feel each morning. Take comfort in friends.
Good luck.

I was told I had Fibro by an endo as I was seeking help for thyroid support. He touched around my throat and said you are fine, but you have Fibro. He pushed his guaifenasen drug on me but I refused. To this day, I'm not sure about the FM dx. I think so much is thyroid dsyfunction.

I took none of the drugs TV sells for Fibro, but use all supplements, to me they are not snake oil but good supports. I deal with more OA but not sure about this FM stuff. I call it stuff since I believe much needs to be addressed...hormones, adrenals, minerals, vits like magnesium and potassium, and getting thyroid supported which is so MISSED in our medical world.
OA onset at 18, now 79. Fibro onset at 61, Hip Replacement "mess" 72 (nerve damage, IT band damage, shorter leg). Otherwise, pretty good health.

Most important supplement: grape seed extract
