I had symptoms that could be related to as much sugar I ate

Customer Question

I had symptoms that could be related to as much sugar I ate over the weekend. I felt week, a little cold feeling, with a mild headache. It last 1-2 days. On the last day, I decided to take Nyquil to help with falling to sleep. Well. I sweated so much, I woke up drench like I just played an hour of basketball. I changed my clothes, went back to bed, and it happened again. I feel fine today
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: Sat and Sunday I ate really unhealthy. A lot of sugar foods and drink. Mid-day on Monday I started to feel aches in my the afternoon I felt aches and night I had the aches, cold feeling, and a headache. I also had diarrhea. Tuesday I felt better, but the aches were still there. By Tuesday night I felt much better, but decided to take Nyquil to fall help with sleep. I woke up twice last night with my clothes all wet. I feel fine today. Not sure the reason. I keep going back to all the sugar I ate on sat and sun and maybe I was having a sugar hangover or withdrawal or something. My blood pressure is a little high the last time I had tht checked, so I don't know if that has something to do with it

I don't think that your symptoms had anything to do with your diet....

What you describe >>diarrhea>> aches >>night sweats >> headaches

These sound that you have probably been fighting a viral infection / a gastroenteritis most likely >> more than 80 percent are viral..

If you have ongoing diarrhea then I would try Pepto Bismol 1 dose after each loose stool up to 7 doses per day up to 5 days..

If you should develop bloody diarrhea or high fever ( 102 or higher ) or severe abdominal pain then seek medical attention..

Rest / bland and light diet / push fluids and electrolytes / Gatorade -- soups -crackers -etc

I hope that this information is helpful for you Let me know if I may be of further help

If my answers have been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback
