Reactive Hypoglycemia Anxiety

Anxiety Chest Pain

Anxiety chest pain is very understandable, whichever comes first - the anxiety or the pain. Anxiety can tighten muscles which may be sore already, and put an extra load on our heart by speeding it up, bringing on angina. A diagnosis of life threatening disease of any sort, is a recipe for anxiety +++ I am always very impressed with people who genuinely are not afraid of death, for whatever reason. Modern advances in the care of heart disease, fortunately have dramatically reduced the risk of death from it. If angina pain attacks make you understandably anxious, this may well prolong the attack. A little visualization exercise now may help you compose yourself and end the attack. Sit down and close your eyes, then imagine you are somewhere quiet and peaceful, such as in a park. In your imagination, fill in some details of the scene and have something happening there for you to watch. Another effective method for dealing with such anxiety chest pain, needs a clock with a second hand in sight. Watch the second hand and breath in steadily over 5 seconds, and out over the next 5 seconds. Continue this, putting all your attention on the air coming in and going out of your lungs.

    Hey man, I too have been wondering/ worried about Reactive Hypoglycaemia lately. I've noticed a correlation with the food I eat and my anxiety levels. I'm a 24 year old male (5'10 145lbs)
    The truth is though I struggle with if I actually have it, or if it's my anxiety making another obsession trying to explain why I feel so shitty, if that makes sense?
    I bought a blood sugar monitor, I take my blood sugar a lot. Obsessively sometimes, I'm never in "hypoglycemia" range, but when my blood sugar drops a lot, or is dropping I noticed an increase in anxiety, but I don't know if that's just because that's what I'm looking for.
    I've been trying a mostly keto diet, to try and combat this "reactive hypoglycemia" and I don't know if it's working, or if I'm doing more harm than good. I don't really need to lose any weight, also this keto diet makes you FLUSH through electrolytes so you're constantly thirsty, it's kind of a drag.
    I've gotten some blood tests, and my blood is always in normal range. Even have had a glucose tolerance test, but it was done the wrong way, so it wouldn't show if I had reactive hypoglycaemia or not.
    I think I'm always searching for a reason why I feel the way I do, my anxiety feels so physical, and I've had to give up so much because of it. Truthfully, looking back, there are sometimes I felt fine anxiety wise after eating, and there are other times my anxiety is bad. I don't know, I'm at a loss. I wish I could tell you the diet's helping but I don't know if it is, if anything I'm just uncomfortable because I'm so thirsty all the time with it lol.
    Kind of just going off here lol. but the thing is I think you should try to eat less carbs, and see how you feel. It's worth a shot at least. Also go to your doctor, and bring up your concerns and see if you can get a 4 hour glucose tolerance test, that checks EVERY half hour, that's the only way to know if you have RH or not. Also do some research into it and know you're not the only one to think you may have it with anxiety. We tend to obsess over our health with this beast, always searching for answers when there might not be one. Don't 100% with out a doubt think you have Reactive Hypoglycaemia is what i'm saying.
    Good luck man! I know what you're going through.
