Sugar Question

firemanswifeMay 23, 2006

This is the second time this has happened to me so I'm a little freaked out.

This morning when I got to work I bought a Sprite from the vending machine and I had a little bag of Hot Tamale candies that I brought from home. Over the morning I drank about half of my Sprite and had a handful of the candies and all of a sudden I felt really funny. A little light headed and dizzy. It's now mid-afternoon and I still feel this way. It's not as bad but I still feel funny. I very rarely eat sugar but this morning it just sounded good and I never gave it another thought.

About a month ago we were at a friends house for dinner and I had a pop with dinner and then for dessert my DH and I split a brownie and within minutes I felt the same way I do today. Just really light headed and dizzy.

I am terrified it's the start of diabetes. I am going to call and make an apt. to see my doctor.

Any ideas what this could be?

Sugar overload?

Concentrated sweets can cause your body to produce adrenaline, which burns sugar FAST, and then you have a brief drop in blood sugar and get dizzy.

Avoid sweets, especially soda pop.

I am going to have to give up soda completely, I felt so awful. It finally went away around 2:30 but after that I had the worst headache I think I have ever had. It was awful. I am drinking a huge bottle water today and I have a yogurt for my treat! It's just not worth taking that chance agian.
