just hit the fridge.... mad sugar cravings

Postby jazzy » Fri Nov 12, 2010 9:46 pm

Hi ladies

Been really down 2day.... had migraine number... (lost count) all day. ive been having them for a couple of weeks continously now. I had some dizzy spells a couple of wks ago and a migraine that put me in bed. Im getting headaches or migraines regularly.... trying not to eat chocolate but I keep having cravings.... feel awful tonight as I gave in to the cravings and I know I will continue to get bad headaches especially if I eat chocolate. Im seeing my female GP on tuesday about this.

I feel really edgy and anxious tonight - I normally follow low GI diet but really disappointed with myself tonight cos keep breaking the rules lately and paying for it physically afterwards. My emotions are also all over the place like the zip zap boung game (lol).... just wanna get this pcos out of me. Arghhhhhhhh! I am also hoisted (cant walk anymore). Been in a wheelchair all my life, but I used to walk step from chair to bed etc until 2 years ago after my 2nd spine operation. Now I am hoisted fulltime (cant walk at all) and still finding it extremely hard to deal with and adjust to. Was heartbreaking watching emmerdale tonight about Jackson and his paralysis from neck down.... I know its only a soap but it reminded me of when I was on bed rest after my spine op :cry: when I couldnt feed myself while in bed... mum had 2 feed me. I knew it wouldnt last forever as I can feed myself normally and communicate fully Im up in my wheelchair ok these days, unlike Jackson not paralysed from neck down so suppose I should be grateful. I dunno its just hard sometimes.... Im sick and tired of being so f....king dependant on people for care and moving around. One of my close mates at previous college died last year.... i've thought about topping myself but I live for him and my other mate who died 3 years ago. A family member also passed away last year - im still getting over the losses but I soooo know theyd want me to live and that is why im still here. not coping very well tonight though. love holly xxx

Hi Jazzy

I went to a Headache Conference at a Neurology hospital in London last year, one of the speakers was a professor who specialised in headaches and works both in London and the States, he has carried out a lot of research in to this (he is also the patron of one of the large migraine charities). He said that foods like chocolate and cheese etc do not cause a migraine but are the start of a migraine, he said you start to crave comfort foods before the normal tell tale signs appear and that is why you then associate those foods as causing the migraine if that makes sense. Obviously he put it better than me, but i suppose what I wanted to say is don't beat yourself up about it it's the migraine that is causing it.

I hope you feel better soon

Hi. Thanks for your reply. Let me get this right - Its the actual craving of the food before eating it that infuriates the migraine? Does that mean migraines are associated more with the psychological/stress and hormone levels of pcos, rather than the foods we eat. Is it only once we have a migraine that the comfort foods (eg: cheese and chocolate) infuriate it? What about dairy products? Should I be avoiding those too or is it best to just de-stress to try and calm my hormones down?

Sorry for so many questions - im just really anxious at the mo. Im going to the pcos conference in london on november 27th - It is part of pcos awareness week from Nov 20th-27th. On the website it says registration is still open if you wanted to have a look
