I have been pre-diabetic for some time, without treatment. I have never liked sugar/fizzy drinks/dessert etc. and, until recently, not eaten much cake or biscuits by choice. I started with an anxiety state, which developed into depression because this was the straw that broke me. I have other ongoing health issues to cope with caused by medical negligence, and the new constant state of fear, with panic attacks, made my life not worth living. I told the GP that I didn't know if the anxiety symptoms (racing heart, sudden spreading heat, headache, shakiness, cognitive symptoms etc) were caused by a physical problem rather than a psychological problem, as there seemed to be some connection with the stomach. He thought not, and prescribed an anti-depressant. When I read the notes, the medication does not treat anxiety, which was my primary problem, and the side effects mimic the horrible symptoms I already have. I noticed I feel OK before breakfast, with the symptoms starting soon after eating, then carrying on at lesser or greater strength throughout the day. I searched 'anxiety after eating' and a whole new world opened up to me! I read everything - some I understood and some not - but I can't tell you how relieved I am to make some sense out of the miserable confusion and fear. On one site I even found a reference to 'burning soles of feet' - something I thought was a weird thing specific to me. I just wanted to thank you all who set up and post on this and other forums, to help and support others. It's so very kind of you, and I hope that kindness comes back to you in a hundred ways.
