Please help me hack my strange symptoms. A few weeks ago I fasted and had a problem with my thyroid swelling and some bad edema. I still have a lump in my throat even though the swelling has gone down very much. But now I am having pins and needles in my limbs through out my arms and legs/hands and feet. I still get swelling on warm days. I feel tired and a bit depressed and have trouble to use the bathroom.
Any ideas what could be wrong with me.
What I eat: Mainly meat and fat. Sometimes cheeses (little amounts) and heavy cream in about 1 ½ cups of coffee. Rarely do I eat vegetables but when I do I eat mushrooms or red pepper. I do not take any vitamins. I drink water and eat table salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
That's about it.
I agree with the other suggestions to see a doctor.
Additionally, many folks here report problems with lethargy, digestion, and being generally uncomfortable when they don't eat enough carbs. I think it is possible to go too far eating exclusively meat and eggs.
I had some issues when I think I went overboard with the meat, eggs and fat without eating enough fruits and vegetables. To remedy this, I ate nothing but yogurt and fruit for about 12 hours and then was sure to include a relatively lower-protein and lower-fat meal every day for a few days, and I felt much better.
You might be short on vitamins and several minerals. Zinc, magnesium, iodine, copper, choline, vitamin c, potassium etc. Very hard to get these with just muscle meat. Muscle meat isnt that nutrious. You need organ meat. Liver, heart, kidney marrow etc. And seafood like oysters, fish perhaps kelp etc... And surely some leafy greens, tubers and vegetables, fermented vegetables, and some berries perhaps.
