I went to a new doc yesterday, a chiro, because he was recommended to me as an acupuncturist. Of course, he wants to check me out as a chiro and make sure there isn't anything wrong with my spine and everything's in place. I'm willing to go along with that, even if I feel it's unnecessary. However, in our first appointment, he started discussing inflammation as a major part of FM. I've never heard of inflammation as a symptom, and only in relation to my TMJ have I personally ever had a problem with inflammation. This new doctor wants to discuss an anti-inflammatory diet (and I hate diets of any kind). This all has me kind of leery and I wanted to run this all by you guys before my next appointment. Have you guys ever heard of or experienced inflammation as a major part of FM?
