Within the hour I get a feeling like someone has hit me across the midsection with a big flat metal shovel....
  9. Hi, I had similar episodes a couple years ago that turned out to be my blood sugar rising very quickly. This usually would happen to me following a high-carb meal. This could be your body adjusting to your new way of eating....but it could also be a blood sugar problem. It is something worth...
