RHG is not the same as fasting hypoglycemia, which is low blood sugar that occurs when you do not eat, making it difficult to diagnose on a regular medical test.
In chronic Myofascial Pain Syndrome (MPS), the process of eliminating trigger points (TrPs), is hampered by the presence of hypoglycemia; TrP activity is aggravated and specific therapy responses is reduced. A good start would be to become aware of the glycemic index of foods in creating a healthy FMS diet. To read more about my journey living with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome and Fibromyalgia – click here. RHG occurs after a meal of excess carbs, followed by a rapid glucose absorption, and then the production of a large amount of insulin. In FMS, it is enhanced by dysfunctional neurotransmitter regulation and other systemic mechanisms. Dietary fats decrease the flow of carb into the bloodstream and dampen the insulin response. Serotonin regulates the appetite for carb-rich foods and this neurotransmitter is out of balance in Fibromyalgia.

The glycemic index measures the speed at which certain foods increase blood glucose levels. Only foods and beverages that contain carbs are ranked, since they have the biggest effect on blood sugar. Examples include: Instant white rice, brown rice, plain white bread, white skinless baked potato, boiled red potatoes with skin and puffed wheat cereal. I was going to write about hypoglycemia and fibromyalgia not knowing there was a name already attached to the dual disorder. Signs and symptoms of reactive hypoglycemia may include hunger, weakness, shakiness, sleepiness, sweating, lightheadedness, anxiety and confusion.
Many of these symptoms are caused largely by circulating adrenalin, which is also increased by anxiety. High glycemic foods raise blood sugar quickly and low glycemic foods have the oppositie effect.
Stress and overeating high sugar foods tend to be the major culprits in inducing insulin resistance.  This leads to a greater increase in insulin secretion and a greater increase in stored fat.

Hypoglycemia also starves the brain of glucose energy, which is essential for proper brain function. People with RHG are often, but not always, overweight and unable to lose the exta pounds, which usually settle on the belly and won’t go away.
Lack of glucose energy to the brain can cause symptoms ranging from headache, mild confusion, and abnormal behavior, to loss of consciousness, seizure, and coma. Immediate treatment of severe hypoglycemia consists of administering large amounts of glucose, and repeating this treatment at intervals if the symptoms persist. Patients with diabetes mellitus who develop low blood glucose from their medicines require medication adjustments.
Treatment of reactive hypoglycemia consists of dietary measures, including fewer concentrated sweets and the ingestion of multiple small meals throughout the day.
