Hi there I'm a 42 year old male who has ME CFS diagnosed in 2007 and in 2013 I was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis and as side effect result of heavy steriod treatment for colitis I have developed anxiety disorder .
My latest flare of coltis has floored me fatigue wise I'm almost housebound bordering on bed bound I have no energy i haven't had a drink of alcohol in a year because of flare and medications . I am not overweight and I am within my BMI for height and weight but have put on about half a stone in the last month and have had blood tests done frequently my blood sugars are normal .
In the past few months I developed a craving for sugar sweets sugar mints to be exact I eat about a packet a day I know myself it's too much but I have a craving for them other than the sweets my diet is good . Can eating too much sugar make you feel more tired and fatigued and add to my ME CFS and possibly my colitis symptoms ? I know I'm probably asking the obvious here sugars more addictive than cocaine right ?
