It's not just ketosis, but also sugar & salt withdrawal combined with fluid re-regulation. Make sure you are drinking enough water and getting adequate minerals in your diet.

A lot of your symptoms are probably being caused by electrolyte depletion / imbalance. If you're low carb, you need to be consuming about 5 grams of sodium a day. 5 days / week of intense cardio is not healthy either.

You can search for paleo-friendly doctors in your area, and find someone who can see your complete medical history and examine and monitor you. That way you'll have good advice from someone who understands your whole picture.
