I am really hoping someone here can shed some light in anyway on one of my particular symptoms. I have been unwell for last 14 yrs. I was diagnosed with CFS but also as part of that label I was told I was suffering from an infection...of unknown origin. Last year I had my blood tested at Igenix and came back with positive result in 5 bands for Lyme. I am being treated for that currently. The treatment for Lyme so far has not diminished a symptom that is very debilitating - over whelming sleepiness after eating carbohydrates. The effect is somewhat seasonal in nature. Worse in Autumn + winter (that might be tied in to my diet a little I have to admit). It means if I have a reasonable amount of carbs or starches for a meal I will crash from tiredness. I cannot stop from falling to sleep...on the sofa, at my desk, on the toilet, on the floor, at the table. the slumber lasts about 2 hrs. If I have a bag of hot chips or a bowl of mashed pumpkin, with in 20 mins its like I have gulped down a Rohypnol. It makes it very hard to work unless I have special meals. So I can end up sleeping 2+2+2+7 hrs a day. If I was a fat guy then this would maybe not so bad having to modify my diet, but I am underweight and have bf of only 5% and am eating to put on some weight. This aspect seems to be getting worse each year. I did a little googling and low insulin seemed to be the big standout. I had a 2 hour glucose fast test done about 9 yrs ago got the okay on that. I also had a test for narcolepsy about 5 yrs ago and got the all clear on that. I recently bought some Keto-Diatix urine strips that measure glucose + keton. I have used a few of these when going to toilet and they show things as okay which I have to admit was disappointing. I do think my urine has a bit of a sweet smell to it + I notice often when I go to toilet and don't flush I see ants all round the bowl/lid where I have pee'd in the morning. From what I have described here can anyone here shed any light on this?
