Just a quick update - as my time is very limited today....
Think I might have found out what is causing me to just be "off" on certain days. Or maybe I am narrowing it down. My body is talking to me again. This past week I decided to cut out most of my carbs. No cereal, no sandwich bread, no tortillas and for sure avoid the pasta and rice. I am eating more vegetables, throw in some fruit (of course) and a combination of eggs and chicken have been in my diet this week. I have been exercising each day and have been feeling good.
Well, this morning I was craving some peanut butter, so I thought I would only have my carbs this mornings. Pulled out an english muffin, toasted it, added just the right amount of peanut butter. Added a small glass of milk and a banana. It was yummy.
However, just about the time I was getting dressed and preparing for the rest of my day, I felt that familiar off feeling that has been with me for the last month or so. The heart thumbing a little too fast for me, taking a moment to catch my breath, but not really catching my breath, sort of feel dizzy can't explain it "off" issue. It isn't that dramatic, but it is just something that is throwing me off. I have not felt that way in about 3 days. Could it be the bread I had this morning? I know it isn't the banana or the milk, because I have had both of those a few times this week. I don't eat peanut butter like it is candy, opps - I mean celery - (ha, ha), and I actually had some the other day at Mer's.
My doctor did say I had an enlarged thyroid, but offered no sort of explanation as to why it was enlarged. Could it be the thyroid reacting to the bread? It is a mystery right now. Trying to figure it out. If not breads in the last 3 days, but had some today, could that be the issue? Going to keep researching, ask more questions, might go to a specialist, sure I will find more help in this. I don't feel that I have to be on pills for my thyroid, because my blood work and other tests all came back fine. More things to learn about my body as I go through this phase.
Anyone out there that has an enlarged Thyroid experience any "funny" feelings when you eat carbs? Any resourceful links you recommend are helpful, too.
