Slight chess pressure. Headaches. Pain in my lower leg. Pain in my arm, fingers. It moves around to my shoulder and jaw. These would last all day even with rest.
I could be Insulin Resistance, which is not normally tested. When one is Insulin Resistant, blood sugar can be at normal levels, but the body can have nasty reactions to "excess" carbs in a meal, especially simple carbs.
It's estimated that at least one out of three, of our population, has some level of Insulin Resistance.
5'10" 285 pounds. Probably consider obese.
It took a lot of time and work and enjoyable eating and drinking to get to that weight! I was overweight before I became Insulin Resistant. If I could go back and eat pizzas and hot dogs and chicken wings and meatball subs, etc., I would do it in a heartbeat!
Unfortunately, when we eat more carbs than our body can handle, it causes excessive amounts of Insulin to be pumped into our blood streams, which, over time, causes all kinds of hell to break loose in our body.
You might want to research "Insulin Resistance" and figure out whether or not it's playing a role with your health problems.
