First, I think the issue is the gliadin looks a lot like transglutaminase which is a super important enzyme in lots of places (like the thyroid and pancreas). However you'd have a hard time looking at the structures and saying they're similar... (more)

Sounds like low blood-glucose. You're probably low-ish carb paleo most of the time and eating a starch bomb like that caused you to over-produce insulin taking your blood sugar too low.

There is a place for alternative medicine and lifestyle modification and there's a place for traditional medicine. I think this would definitely fall into the latter category - see a Neurologist.
