Maybe not literally, but we know that you:
eat sugar -> body detects high sugar -> pancreas pumps out insulin
and large amounts of sugar are stressful to the pancreas, so I'm wondering if we know of any proven ways to decrease that stress somehow.

I'm thinking, what if you ate a high protein meal before eating the sugar? If your stomach has a harder time breaking down these complex proteins, then maybe it would create a timed release effect on the sugar in the stomach.
Which leads to asking: how does the pyloric valve even decide to when to open and close? Is it when the entire contents of the stomach are properly digested? If so, then that first theory would work, assuming that it's the intestines that detect the sugar and send the signal to the pancreas.

I've also heard something about cinnamon helping.

So how do I eat ice cream without getting diabetes?

Eat less sugar, numb-nuts

>So how do I eat ice cream without getting diabetes?
Balance your diet. Ice-cream alone won't give you diabetes, but poor exercise, little/no breaks from sugary foods, poor hydration and being a mindless, gaping hole for unhealthy foods will. Just read the back of labels more, jeez.

Really annoying how people want to cheat the limits. Can't focus? Take methyphenidrate. Haunted by psychic burdens? Take a benzo. Diabetes exists where mindfulness doesn't.

Why in the world did women's bodies develop in a way that once a month they go through -that- horrifying, painful process? You think Humans will adapt past the cramping and the misery or just the suck mammals have to drink in forever?

This has been going on for about 4 to 5 years or so and It's finally getting to me. I am a very anxiety prone person, but it never gets to me until I start to have physical symptoms coming from my throat and stomach mainly. I have been diagnosed with panic disorder and depression in the past and have been trying things to help get treat it, and made progress about a year ago and actually landed a new job. So basically what is going on right now is I'm having constant anxiety, triggered from my sinuses or the nasopharynx area when they close up and cause a drip in the back of my throat. It makes it kinda hard to breathe normally and I need to constantly clear and swallow a lot of the time. This comes and goes and sometimes after a month or two it'll come back. At the moment it is giving me constant anxiety but not as bad as I had it two years ago, when basically It felt like there was something stuck in the back where the nasal passage meets with the mouth I couldn't clear it and was convinced there was something stuck there for weeks. Had to go to the ER twice because of uncontrollable anxiety that xanax couldn't even handle. They found nothing back there and chalked it up to anxiety. This probably made my anxiety worse because I had fears of it coming back in the future so a month after I became depersonalized from the incredible amount of anxiety and stress my body went through and suffered it for 3 months before moving to a different state. I've been to a few doctors who said I had anxiety or possible GERD but I have not seen a specialist yet. I only have benzos and omeprazole at the moment which I took a full course and don't think it helped me at all. I am currently living with a room mate who has his own problems but he let me stay after I couldn't work anymore and he's a very good friend. It's taken over my life and I feel like I'm going to die each time I get flare ups.. it's very very depressing living and feeling like this. Also to note about a year ago I had my gallbladder removed and a few months after had a strange throbbing feeling in my chest that happens sometimes, I already ruled out that it was a palpitation. I'm going to see a doctor again possibly within this month. All the research i've done ,either have serious GERD/Anxiety mixed with OCD and possibly could be inflamed adenoids. Any input is appreciated, I just wanna know I'm not dying . I wanna cry a lot because It's wasted so much of my life and I just wanna be happy again

I do not have gerd, know people that do.

I know the choking feeling though, causing panic attacks. Surely nightmares are part of this distress.

Mirtazapine for most, taken at night will make one sleep well. Weird dreams but nightmares are non existent, or minimized to a not so good dream.

Really, panixc attacs in relation to faster acting drugs like xaxax, there is little difference in the time it takes in reducing anxiety. Longer acting drugs like claonazapine, valium, for anxiety may be better. Xanax has kind of a rough edge to it.

I am thinking you have a feeling unable to berate correctly. If have insurance, maybe seek specialists to monitor your respiratory issues.

In short, I had a issue with this as you explained. For years. Things are not great but easier to deal with. The not having a full time job is the worst. SO again good luck to you and friends.

Yes and thank you . The odd feeling of something stuck in the nasopharynx area is gone I think ? But I still have bad drainage. I had an anxiety attack almost everyday this week but not today. My symptoms are either really abnormal or I've over analyzed it. People don't really seem to understand my problem fully . I don't even fully understand it maybe it's gotten to the point of hypochondria . the other day I was walking with my friend down the street and felt a dislodging of mucus almost in my throat going down so I tried to swallow and had a weird stuttering reflex where I couldn't swallow correctly for a moment . It was so strange and scary, to be honest I'm not even sure if I described it correctly. trying to be calm about it, but the reoccurring makea me worried a lot. I don't want to have this problem forever.

Sinus problems are known to cause anxiety, not anxiety as a response to the symptoms as in being scared of them, but as in they can be an actual hard physical trigger for anxiety. Same goes for inner ear problems. They can also cause a whole host of other neurological symptoms - dizziness, fatigue, depression, dissociative symptoms.

Your doctors are being idiots as per usual and are treating symptoms instead of the cause.

Back pain

I fucked up my back. Not sure how, probably a combination of bad mattress and stupid exercise method with dumbells. It's on the left side, mostly near the spine reaching just below my scapula into my mid back. Expands outwards a bit into my ribs and side. Not a disc issue, not yet.

It's been persistent for about a week. It's better but still a steady 5/10 pain all day every day. I've been self medicating with alcohol at night, just so I can sleep, but I already have an issue with alcoholism and don't like having a medical reason to enable myself.

Are there any non prescription muscle relaxants? My insurance is terrible. In the meantime I'm just not working out my upper body and trying not to make things worse.

I don't really know what to do. I don't have am SO to give me massages on the daily and I can't afford professionals

Alcohol is not a good drug. - Say one drank a few days ago, the mind and body connection will be off. Even as much time has passed.

Drinking and lifting weights is nothing new either. Fun, see your accomplishments. Friends or alone.

I believe if one had not drank in say 1 2 3 4 5 days, it would be safer to drink and lift while drinking, than not drinking a few days earlier.
Just a thought I really believe.

The minds 'after' drinking takes a while to sync with ones body. I do think drinking, and lifting is safe,
even after drinking before, day days, it is just refreshing where one started, if that makes sense.

Ibuprophen, the best you would find. OK, drinking to offset back pain. Uhmm, it does work for a short time, but it is faulty.

It works I gues but reality, drinking, especly for back pain, one will sleep in weird ways.

Keep enough water and don't be afraid to drink some, waking slightly in deep sleep.
In all, alcohol may help with back pain, but it's really temporary at best. Ibuprophen, OK
the other drugs, tylenol pm, pm is diphendryhadramine, has sleep helpers.

I am telling you friend, alcohol, maybe make it as an easy fix. It is.
It does make back pain worse though..

I would opt for possible 600mgs (max) every 6 hours for pain, take simple walks.

Hope things go well.

Kava is a muscle relaxant, but DON'T combine with alcohol or you'll get liver problems. I also take kratom.
You could also try a heating pad. Weighted (the microwaveable kind filled with beans or grain, preferably) so it holds itself down on your back.
I like hitachi magic wands for self-massage. The vibration is intense, though.
Capsaicin rub or cream, used three times a day for at least two weeks. Try a medium concentration first. It'll be not fun for a bit but eventually you get used to it, and after two weeks of use you'll see effects.
