Hey Everyone,
So I'm sorry I don't know if this is a good place to post this or not, but I figured it would be a good place to start.
Anyway, yesterday I discovered gluten free, soy free, dairy free cookies! I was super excited and bought some. But I ate way more than I should have and afterward my heart started pounding and then I got really tired and fell asleep. I got really scared and I was just wondering if anyone had any ideas why this would happen. I have shown signs of hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia- I can't remember which one it was- in the past. And like everyone in my family is diabetic, not me, but mostly everyone else. Could this be a blood sugar thing or an allergy? The only other thing that happened was that I woke up tired and with a headache today and my throat was score, but that could have been from seasonal allergies.
Well, if anyone has any ideas I would really appreciate your thoughts.
Thanks

Personally, I think its a good excuse to visit your doctor and ask to be screened for whichever health issue runs in the family (so you might want to call a family member to get the scoop before your apt)

Do you have any heart issues?

I am not familiar with "hypoglycemia or hyperglycemia" -- but I am with heart stuff. I have a fast pulse that I take medicine to bring down. If the cookies were chocolate or chocolate chip and you had a lot (a lot of chocolate/caffeine) then that could have been the cause or part. My mom couple Easters ago had a little more than she should have of the small chocolate Easter eggs and her pulse went really high (she also has heart issues). You do get tired when you pulse races. You can also feel faint.

Just a thought...

I agree though with dbmamaz, I would go see your doctor. Bring in the cookies or just the nutrition label so the doctor can see what was in the cookies (would be helpful).

Hope you are feeling better...GOOD LUCK!

The heart pounding makes me think allergy. I'd get to a dr asap.

Hello Analisa:( Scary, yes? I, too, have the same problem whenever I eat anything containing sugar. My mom was a diabetic and both of my parents were Celiacs! I only know this cause I inherited two sets of genes. I think just generally we are already so immune suppressed that even any sugar causes our hearts to work overtime...in addition to keeping a body going with celiac disease. I am envious of others who can eat sugar...just feels like one more thing I can't eat. But I do try to listen to my body. I had Trader Joe's Gluten Free Ginger Snap cookies Sunday and Monday night and got REALLY sick....heart pounding, flopping like a fish out of water. Then terrible sinus infection....I also think some system candida thing is going on. Okay, so bottom line....stay away from the sugar and journal your heart for a week...Good luck and thanks for posting this, cause I've been scared just like you. :) :)

The sore throat makes me think another intolerance/allergy. It could have been the rice flour, tapioca or anything else in the cookies.

Hey Everyone,
Thank you so much for your replies!! They were all very helpful. I think I'm going to cut out sugar and make an appointment with my doctor. I was already tested for diabetes about two years ago, but maybe I should have the test again or see if there is something else going on. Again thank you so much I really appreciate you input. :)
