Does Sugar = Pain?
Thursday, September 08, 2011
Okay, I don't actually have video of me chowing down on cake and ice cream but it doesn't matter; photos and mirrors will do the same trick. I have been deluding myself with the idea that I am able to control my sugar intake just by watching it - sure - I've been watching the scale slowly slide upwards! Yikes! Double Yikes! I've been hanging between 263 and 269 for at least four months now and I am tired of it. As it so happens, this time period has corresponded with my delusion about sugar. It is back to reading packages and limiting intake to special occasions. It is not depriving in any way - I am not certain what drives me to be so stupid.
On to other things (not so bright either). Finally, after approximately four months of on and off pain (not fibro pain) I have had my shoulder x-rayed. The doc thinks it is some sort of compression injury. Not certain what he can do about it. Oh, well.
I am really curious about how many other sufferers of Fibromyalgia find a correlation between sugar intake and pain. I am fairly certain that my body reacts to sugar - in high doses - with more pain. I don't find that so much with honey, but then I eat less honey. Just curious.
Thanks for listening.
You people are the best.
