I'm familiar with the basic symptoms of wheat withdrawal (having gotten on and off the wagon multiple times) but this feels very strange.
I'm 31 years old, have about 80 pounds to lose, and have been off-diet for most of the summer (ugh). I'm also a "double diabetic" -- I have both type 1 and 2. Today was my first day stepping back on the wagon, and my ONLY concern was to avoid wheat. I've already dealt with a few cravings and decided, about an hour ago, to go for a walk. About halfway through my walk (about a mile) my face and scalp start tingling, like pins and needles style. That's usually a symptom of low (or falling) blood sugar for me, so I turned around and came home. But my sugar was around 150. I'm also experiencing other low-sugar symptoms, like lightheadedness and "floatiness." I've monitored my sugar several times over the last twenty minutes, and while I'm dropping a little it's not enough to cause these symptoms. It's centered in my cheeks right now, feeling a bit like electric stimulation.
I've consulted Dr. Google (always a bad idea!) and I've ruled out stroke, but I noticed it was a symptom for nicotine withdrawal. Does it make sense to extend the idea to wheat?
