I need some
Yesterday morning when I woke up I felt strange. I felt sort of shaky and like my heart was racing. I thought I was just nervous though because I was going in for some really minor surgery and I knew it was gonna hurt. I stayed that way until the early afternoon (the surgery was in the morning....for some weird reason they didn't do my blood pressure before so I don't know if all my vital signs were normal or not). Yesterday evening I felt pretty good over all, had lots of energy, etc. Last night was a really rough night with Alexia. She was up every 90 mins or so crying. I did notice that everytime I got up I was sort of off balance but I was also half asleep. This morning however when I got up I felt really REALLY strange. Sort of dizzy like but not quite. I was shaky and I just kept feeling like I could just pass out and go unconscious at any moment. I drank a bottle of water and laid back down but didn't feel any better. I actually started to feel nauseous. I figured eating something might help but, being nauseous, I didn't want to eat any of the stuff from the TED. So I told dh to just make me some toast with butter. After I ate the toast, within 10 mins, I was feeling pretty good again. It's been about 2 hrs now and I still a little strange but much much better than this morning.
I feel like whatever happened is related to this diet. Either it's withdrawal (although that seems a little extreme, it's just food withdrawal not crack withdrawal lol) or my body just isn't getting what it needs on this diet.
Dh wants me to go back to just being corn-free and I'm considering it. I know I'm only on day 6 but Alexia hasn't gotten any better at all. Her skin is *maybe* better but we've also been slathering on the lotion. She's waking up more not less and her poop is still green and diarhea like.
I feel like this diet is making me sick for no reason at all. I just don't know where to go from here.
ETA: After talking it over with dh he thinks I should try and just add in one food and see how I feel. He thinks I should do eggs because they have lots of vitamins/nutrients and will make me feel better. I would like to try to stay off dairy since I've made it this far (minus the toast & butter this morning!). And if she starts spitting up again then we'll know egg is an issue, right? Does this seem like an OK plan? It's certainly not a TED but it's also not just an ED either. Something just has to give and I can't have these blacking out spells. Dh is leaving in less than a week and I really fear feeling that sick and not being able to take care of my kids even if it only lasts a few minutes.
