Find a new doctor, someone who will listen to you. A good doctor will keep looking until they find the source of what is wrong and not be so quick to medicate. When I first started having problems, I had a doctor prescribed Bextra for arthritis but didn't even run any tests to find out if that was my problem. Well, one day on the Bextra and I was having heart problems. I quit the medicine and called the doctor and I was told that it was not possible, Bextra is a good drug and it would help. I went to a different doctor and even another until I found someone who would listen to me. I found out a bit later that Bextra was dangerous and the problems I had could have killed me. So don't depend on the doctor to always treat you right just because there is a Dr. in front of his name. You know your body, listen to it and if your doctor won't listen to you, move on.
I also have carb problems, refined sugar is my enemy, but I love it so much. And bread, yum! Why does it have to be this way, we already hurt. We can't even comfort ourselves with food to feel better. I eat sugar and I'm pretty much out of it for a few days. I get cranky, impatient and trip over my own two feet. It takes my fibro symptoms and makes it 10 times worse. I can deal with the pain but the fatique and fog is just to much. I try very hard to stay away from refined sugar, I do eat natural sugar from fruits and veggies (just not the same though). I must say when I am being good I feel better.
