Hypoglycemia Syndrome and Fibromyalgia
30% of female and 20% of male Fibromyalgics are carbohydrate intolerant or Hypoglycemic..
Symptoms greatly overlap those of Fibromyalgia, but sugar craving accompanied by tremors, sweating, anxiety, panic attacks, heart pounding, faintness, and frontal headaches, especially if hunger induced, are solid clues to the diagnosis.
Hypoglycemics must follow a prescribed diet or recovery will not be complete even with the reversal of fibromyalgia.
