I tried fasting for half a day and it helped with the pain. But once I fast for the whole day and the pain aggravated. I had also observed that when I eat salads I feel good with reduced pain. So I take them every day and this has definitely helped with the pain. I want to know how come they help with the pain.

You must also reduce in tea, coffee, chocolates, alcohol, and sodas and over consumption of dairy. You must also reduce sugar in your diet. Try to have a good sleep it is the key to reduce pain.
