First of all, congratulations on overcoming your fibromyalgia. I hope you're celebrating that victory! Now on to your other concerns...

You absolutely MUST stop the bad fats NOW. Go directly to your fridge and cabinets, and toss anything that contains corn or
canola or vegetable oil - so mayos, dressings, say goodbye. Start a new habit of squeezing fresh lemon juice on your steamed
veggies (really delicious!) and here's a great vinaigrette recipe I use on my salads (I also use it as a mayo replacement on things like my lettuce wrap BLTs)
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
3/4 cuo EVOO
1/2tsp finely ground celtic salt
1/4 tsp fresh ground blk pepper
1 tsp fresh lemon juice (maybe more to taste - you wnt to brighten up the overall flavor)
1tsp honey (just enough to turn the sour into tangy)
Recycle one of those salad dressing bottles and add all your ingredients then give it a good, emulsifying shake, and enjoy!
Also, if you havent't been doing the sprinting and lifting heavy things part of being primal, begin to do them once per week. As much as primal is about diet, it's about moving your body for heart health.
You've already come so far - don't let this visit to the doctor spoil your feeling of accomplishment! You've got so much to be proud of! And now that you're no longer dealing with the pain of the fibromyalgia you can take it up a notch.
I'll be your sprint buddy if you like : )
