On comment made rang true in my ears. "I eat the same thing every day! People at work make fun of me, but at least I know I can get there each day without unexpected reactions." Oh, how true! If you've been a victim to this illness for a number of years, you've naturally come to realize which foods can run havoc on a truly remarkable day. And, you learn to avoid them at all cost in the future.
You may have also noticed foods that you haven't eaten in a while cause a rush of unexplained symptoms. That is why I eat the same thing every day. My food reactions at this point are almost null.
One staple I enjoy every day is my mid morning snack of 1/4 raw almonds and a banana. It never changes, and I can expect to feel great after ingesting it!

Bananas contain Tryptophan which is an amino acid that helps your brain produce the chemical serotonin, which produces stable moods and healthy sleep. For enhanced sleeping capabilities, the University of Maryland Medical Center recommends eating a light, tryptophan-rich snack before bed. Bananas are rich sources of tryptophan and contain no fat and a mere 110 calories per serving. In order for your body to
utilize tryptophan efficiently, you must maintain sufficient levels of iron and vitamin B-6. One banana provides 34 percent of adults' recommended dietary allowance of vitamin B-6 and 2 percent of adults' RDA of iron. - livestrong.com

The precise cause of fibromyalgia remains unknown, although there is some evidence linking fibromyalgia to disruptions of the balance of magnesium and other minerals in the body, reports a study published in the December 1994 issue of the journal "Magnesium Research."
