Need help! Abnormal symptoms when I eat carbs

I'm a 31 year old male I'm getting abnormal symptoms whenever I eat sugar, refined carbs, pop or beer. It started a year ago out of the blue and shocked me. Carbs give me really bad lightheadedness, jittery feeling, extreme anxiety it feels like my brain hurts! My breathing gets super fast and I can't breathe andi hyperventilate I went to the ER a bunch of times it was so bad and they were clueless! Is this an auto immune issue? Leaky gut? Gluten? I usetobeable to eatfine but now thatship has sailed and mystamina is god awful and I feel weak. Hopefully someone can shed some light thanks!

Diabetes can cause headaches due to low blood sugar so if there's an insulin deficiency, converting those carbs may be a task.

Does it happen when you eat fruit and/or vegetables?

Has your GP ruled out anxiety/depression?

No gluten in pop, so if that is bothering you, it doesn't seem like a gluten allergy.

You may be experiencing high blood sugars .
It may be diabetes and if untreated, when you eat carbs, they turn into sugars.
If Diabetic, no insulin means the carbs shoot your blood glucose up very fast.
How long do the effects last?
Did they check your BG at the hospital?

Im pretty sure they checked my BC and it was fine. The symptoms last depending on the severity. Lately because I've been eating better when I slip up and eat to much junk one day it will last an hour or 2 but when I was still figuring this out and eating outfood, beer, pop in alot more concentration I would be hyperventilating and figiting my arms and head with these spasms feeling crazy body anxiety and dizzy for a whole day until the symptoms would stop!

If the carbohydrates in produce don’t bother you, perhaps it’s not a problem with one specific macronutrient.

Go see your family doctor ASAP.
