Ghost pain !


I did a blog awhile back that touched on this subject and i would like to clarify and explain what i went through ..
When i had my accident and lost my leg in that accident i suffered from whats referred to as Phantom pain or ghost pain..Now ghost pain is normal and natural as the brain still thinks the limb is still there and sends messages to the nerves indicating as such..feeling like you have toes , itching and aching not being able to scratch or alleviate the ache..Many nurses and rehab specialists tell you that if your missing leg itches to stand in front of a mirror and scratch as if you are scratching that itch ...lol it does work but i dont do the standing part very well because balance is an issue ..so i looked for alternative ways...
My nerves were on edge most of the time and the pain was pretty intense ..I had a hard job dealing with it so meds were the only relief and being on meds dulled my senses and my overall attitude..It was not an ideal way to live day to day so again i sought alternate ways of dealing with the pain..
When i was able to come back home i was instructed to visit my own doctor and consult with him on my disability so he was aware and could see to my needs...He told me one very important thing..how to deal with phantom pain without drugs or pain meds...Diet plays an important role in stopping the pain..he instructed me to follow a diet , very basic and if i didnt see results in one week then he would put me on something for the pain.
What was he talking about? my first thought ....First thing he said was eliminate man made products from my diet..breads, gravies, dairy products , and anything that was man made involving flours and carbohydrate foods..he put me on a diet of ...Meat , fish, poultry , eggs and vegetables...Why ? because he said those products were the only things man hasnt screwed up putting additives in...Think about it...Breads and pastries , gravies, soups, most dairy like cheeses...all are in carbs..carbs creat sugars and sugars create pain..so anyone living with arthritis, fibromyalgia, or any nerve damage needs to watch their carbohydrate intake...within the first two days i tried this and had no pain at all..I stick to my diet once in awhile i cheat but i also have to the piper for that cheat...
I found a good meat supplier one who does not feed alternate grains to his cattle, i also finally found a fish supplier who brings fresh haddock or whatever i need at a real good ..I have not found a poultry supplier so am it from the stores ...vegetables are easy to come as is eggs ...
**** so bottom line is, it worked for me and i pass this on to anyone who suffers from pain whether it be arthritis , nerve damage or any other affliction ..Please watch your diet for carbs ...pain free for a year now take it from someone who been there ..

EXACTLY!

It's what I kept trying to explain to my sister, if she ate a more Natural, Wholesome Diet, her pain levels would decrease.

Mine have, exponentially, though I'm still working on bringing those stress levels down. Writing is helping a whole lot.

Happy Sunday BitchKitty!

I can't imagine adapting to life as you've had to do it because of your accident. Hats off to you!

I have terrible times with cravings anytime I go sugar-free, or low-carb. Sometimes I can talk myself out of it, sometimes not. The human body craves sugar and millions of years of evolution is NOT just changed by thinking it away. In the past, I have spent months on a paleo regime, and NEVER did those cravings for sugar or carbs go away. BUT, that's not to say that a person shouldn't keep trying to keep the cravings at bay. I have arthritis in my knees, hips, and hands, as well as tendonitis in both elbows/arms. It's a constant, uphill battle.

Great post!

None of us are getting out alive, so let's at least try to be nice to each other while we're here.

Yes the human nature to want to eat everything lol it is a challenge to do just that and i have my cheats ..its hard but destressing yourself with proper diet helps mind is clearer and writing is more intense and brain power to put into words what you want to say is unbelievable..i know the difference between bad days of poor diet and how i feel as opposed to good days of proper diet with clear mind and writing or even every day activities become a breeze bravo..keep on writing i do read but dont always respond ...

thanks for those kind words and yes i do have my go to cravings of not so great food..but i am lucky to be able to walk away from the stuff i cant get along with ..now on occasion i have ice cream or a bagel ..mostly its hard to stick to bland so spices have become my go to for bland foods..high fat cream is ok on baked haddock or cereal after all fats are an ally when matters of diet come up...I dont think the normal person who doesnt have health issues cut out what they want to eat but most take that level beyond the scope of reason lol some cravings never go away but toning it down is best for body and mind..I take bee pollen for immune booster as well as fish oil for brain and heart..there has been controversy on them things helping or not ..its a good choice as i know how i feel on them..thanks

Nope in fact its much cheaper to do my diet than id i were doing the bigger ones..lol I buy my beef from a certified farmer who grass feeds his cattle and when in the winter hay feeds them ..he adds BOC to their diet Barley, Oats and corn which is the most natural feed going..Beef is no higher in carbs than anything else so i am not afraid to eat lots in fact i just bought 132 pounds..not so much hamburg but i get strip beef for stir fry.... 3.50 a pound cut wrapped and delivered free of charge and he lives an hour away...I just found a great fish supplier and i have my freezer filled for the winter ..basic diet ..I am the same weight now as when i started ..my specs are great as well

Interesting to know how this has worked out well for you.
I'm at a point in my life where I have to look after my body with a different focus and regimen from what I was doing in the past. I understand the commitment it takes to make changes in one's daily habits. Bravo for succeeding !

wow thanks that really was the kind of easy part getting back on track the biggest challenge to dat was moving back home and having to deal with people who pretend to be professional carpenters and workers who would steal the eyes out of your head and sell them back to you for profit..I have had so much problems with stealing and not doing the work they were paid to do....thats sad but a very real thing here thanks
