Well, yesterday my friend came over and offered me a scone, she is the type to get VERY offended if I reject this type of thing, so I said i'll have a bit, but it was so damn good I had the whole thing!
About 3-4 hours later near when I sleep, I started to shake a bit and feel my energy absolutely plummet, I start to feel uncomfortably fatigued especially in the hands and feet ( joints?) and I couldn't think straight. Then as I lay in my bed my body " calmed down" after I stayed still for about 10 minutes.
I don't have any problems with gluten, but one of the main reasons for going paleo ( Ive been paleo for perhaps 3-4 months now) is because my energy levels were really weird back on a S.A.D diet.
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.
is this the first gluten you have had in the past 3 months? I hear of alot of people becoming allergic per se after not eating it for some time. Not that you are medically allergic, just that now your body recognizances it as a foreign and bad substance.
If i eat gluten now, I feel terrible - headaches, upset stomach ect.
I agree with others, sounds like a low-blood sugar thing. If you're gonna 'cheat' in future, you can follow it, or rather combine it, with some protein and that will help mitigate the response. I was surprised when my dad told me that part of his education in diabetic eating was to up the fiber and protein. Your guts might get upset, but added protein should help prevent the shaky feelings.
