Hi all
Anyone get probs with sugar and symptoms.

It's not really coming as any suprise to me but I can't have sugar either.
I don't take sugar in drinks, etc - my only weakness is choc :ph34r: which I mainly avoid because of the soy. Have just been reading the soy posts and have to add more symptoms which I suspect are from the sugar.

Rapid heartbeat (got to be from sugar)! followed by chest pain on exercise (angina type but not severe) and sort of laboured breathing - kind of heavy. Add to this a sense of stressiness (new word).

The laboured breathing is while sitting still but worse with exercise.

I do not get these symptoms normally - I have had a bag of Minstrels about an hour ago - supposed to be gluten free but I have a deep suspicion of all 'gluten free' products that are out there generally (as opposed to specifically produced). Can't eat them either, so G knows why I ate the above :ph34r: .

I'm rambling - possibly another symptom ???

I have hypo glycemia I have known for years, and am used to avoiding sugar. If I have sugar my bladder is irritated the next day. It probably causes fatigue also, but I have never thought about it or tried it alone.

I have the bladder issue with sugar too. About 20-30 min after eating sugar, my face (on the sides of my nose) gets bright red and starts to sting a little. Then my scalp starts to flake and itch like crazy. Usually followed by headache the next day (base of skull) and fatigue.

I can't eat processed sugar either. I don't have problem with sugar beets or a certain brand of honey, so I can still get a bit of a sweet fix. I was wondering if it is something about the processing or the sugar itself so I grew hardy sugar cane. I got so little sugar out of it that I still don't know, but it is a nice ornamental grass for my garden.

In what way is your bladder irritated - if that isn't a stupid question?

This is the end of the line with me for sugar - I have been following a paleo/scd type diet for about a week quite strictly so eating that choc made the symptoms very clear for me. It's no good, I just can't eat it - no real surprise actually. I think I'm a particularly slow learner :unsure: . Luckily, I don't generally have sugar things.

In my case, both sugar and soy do the same. As a chocoholic, this was a trauma. But you may want to try either hot chocolate (made with real cocoa and whatever dairy/non-dairy milk you choose), or a high percentage chocolate, like those by Domori or the Lindt 99% (I like that stuff because it does not have the acidity that sometimes is tied to excess sugar). Ever since getting back on extra-dark chocolate, tasting sugary chocolate has suddenly become unsatisfying and disappointing.

My body is trying to kill me.

I can do agave or honey -- others avoid agave.

I make a yummy chocolate mousse regularly - it is my go to sweet fix

Cocoa, Coconut Oil, Almond Milk, Almond Butter, Agave and a touch of vanilla in the blender.

I've been playing with the measurements for about a month - the almond milk is a recent addition and really made it creamy.

For those that are really intolerant of processed items like me -- I make the almond milk with just water and without the straining step for use in mousse and some other recipes -- saves a lot of work.

I have been grain free for a couple weeks now, and before that was 95% sugar free.
I do occasionally use honey with no repercussions. My sugar issues are very direct-
I eat sugar, and the lymph glands in my neck swell up the next day like they do with
the first day of a cold, and I get very fatigued. Sugar definitely affects the immune
system. I will be grain free for a while, trying to control stress induced inflammation
right now, but will give quinoa and rice a shot in a couple of months. When I just can't
take it anymore with the no sweets, I'll either fry up some diced apples in butter and
add a bunch of cinnamon and nutmeg, or sometimes I'll make hot cocoa with milk,
honey, cocoa, maple syrup, and cinnamon and nutmeg. Probably only add a spoonful
each of honey and maple syrup. And maybe some half n half... :ph34r:

If you do try chocolate again, try the enjoy life brand. The mega chunks are great an much cheaper than the candy bars. It"s the only chocolate i can eat without getting sick. It"s gluten,soy,dairy,nut free. I admitt i eat it by the bag fulls :D
You"ll likely have to get it at your local health food store or coop

...I hate to be a worry-wort, but a lot of what you described can also be SERIOUS heart issues! I just had a family member die (young) from a heart attack and a year ago a friend's brother died of a heart attack...in memory of two who lost their lives to bad hearts, I wish, wish, wish you would rule out any possible heart issues :)

Thinking of you (and hoping it's just that annoying sugar!)!
