Jessica Marie Posted August 7, 2015 Share Posted August 7, 2015 Hello my name is Jessica! I am now on day 3 of the Whole 30 and I am experiencing extremely difficult symptoms. Today I felt like I was going to pass out, literally. I went to sleep at 1am woke up at 10am went to chiropractor and came home around noon still without eating anything. As I was making the Spinach Fritatta I felt very light headed and started to eat some strawberries and blueberries to get my blood sugar up. Back story of my eating habits, they are the worst!!!! So as I was eating fruit while cooking in the kitchen I started to have a panic attack feeling as though my sugar was dropping so dramatically and I started to hyperventilate too. I downed a whole box of blueberries and within a few minutes I felt a little better. I kept cooking, thinking i really needed food. I ended up eating the whole fritatta which is a huge meal (6 eggs). I feel no longer faint, its now 2pm. My stomach is so full but my head is saying i need food, I'm hungry!!! After I ate I read more of my whole 30 book and read the next chapter about the time line and the telemundo soap opera I am to expect in regards to sugar withdrawal. I didn't read anything about panic attacks or feeling like passing out. Another side note is that i do have an anxiety problem but i'm on meds and haven't had a panic attack in over a year, so my anxiety is very well managed. No big new stress going on right now that I can think of that could have caused it. I'm also experiencing hot flashes every 30 minutes. I'm 30 years old! Im guessing that my hormones are really jarred at the moment. I literally do feel like a war is waging in my body. Can anyone give me any tips on how to get through this? I probably should eat more meals and regularly too. But are my horrible symptoms normal? Every time in squat down, even for a second when I get up I feel like passing out. Thank you for any help you guys can give me. I am truly inspired to change my eating habits and become whole again. For too many years I have had countless inflammatory symptoms claim my life. I don't want to fail at this. I recently was in a bad accident at work and I have been home now on disability for 4 months due to 3 herniated discs. My chiropractor introduced Whole 30 to me during my care and really implored me to read it. I want to get better so much! I am also getting married in 55 days. Yes I'm counting it down! I want to do anything and everything to get myself through this and to heal my body. So thank you for any help you can give me! -Jessica Johnson Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
