Every single time I eat a meal…any meal at all…about five to ten minutes following the meal, I get the shivers.
Bear with me folks:
I’m talking uncontrollable shivers like my teeth are chattering, I’m freezing, my whole body is shaking to the point that it hurts my back. It’s like I’m standing outside in a blizzard, and it’s happened twice already today.
I know they say that your body’s like a furnace…and you fuel it with food. Makes me wonder why I get so cold after eating. I will say that it doesn’t happen SO much in the summer or spring…but in the winter, it’s a killer.
Does anyone in the whole world experience this but me?
Jeepers. Here it’s just a long dull Monday afternoon, and maybe I’ll do a Google search for Jarbaby, nothin’ better to do. “Shivering eating”. Lo and behold, what pops up but this, on a bulimia website (what came up with the words “shivering” and “eating”): http://www.axom.com/r9700334/2bedrdat.htm
Duck Duck…really…why do you insist on being so half assed and lazy about things?
Thanks for all of those links. I don’t take any meds currently…when I was in college i was prone to fasting and unfortunately had a bout with bulimia… ::shaking fist:: CURSE YOU COSMOPOLITAN! I’ve always been a sort of extremist when it comes to dieting…I’ll eat nothing but rice for three days, or go on a juice fast, take colon cleansers… before I got married I would puke every meal up for days…
My abnormal psych professor told me that as long as I gargled with water afterwards, ‘mild bulimia’ wasn’t really a big deal.
I think I’ll send him some of these sources.
btw…I actually noticed the worst shivers this weekend after eating very spicy mexican food…
thanks for your help!
p.s. HEY! I just realized something else. my doctor told me many years ago that I may have low seratonin because I’m so easily affected by the weather…cloudy, dark days level me, and sunny, happy days give me energy! That could be it!
