I don't want to sound snarky but maybe you should choose something different. Some of the McD breakfasts have upwards of 100 carbs along with 8 oz of OJ, you are getting a major carb hit and you may be having a major blood sugar swing.

You may try something different like a McMuffin with only half of the muffin, no hash browns and unsweetened tea or coffee. Much lower in carbs, still high in fat and sodium. If you still feel lousy, it may not be the carbs but something McD uses in their food preparation.

If you feel similarly when you eat other high carb choices, you should probably consider going back to your doctor for an evaluation.

good luck

I had a similar problem...

Every month I write too many checks and some end up bouncing and then they would turn off my water. What do I do when this happens?

Answer: I check my bank balance, everyday, and, also, whenever I write a check, so my water don't get turned off no more!
