Hi everyone, I’m new to the forum and had been reading posts for the past few days, but I’m really confused and would love to get some help.
I have been on Keto for 3 months and switched to Ketovore for a month. Many health benefits I have achieved, however I have been having joint pain all over the body and lower back pain which seems like kidney pain for the past week. After searching in the forum for tips, I tried drinking a tbsp baking soda mixed in a large glass of water yesterday morning, and had terrible diarrheas 4 times after, then the joint and back pain gone. And continued drinking lemon water with some salt during the day, and a tbsp of AVC mixed in water before bed. However I couldn’t sleep last night, felt extremely irritable and strong heart palpitation and headache all night. Then this morning got up with brain fog and headache, I tried the baking soda with water but only 1 tsp, then felt better, no diarrheas. Then had lemon water with salt through the day. However, around 4pm, I felt headache and brain fog and could not focus at work, then had a full glass of plain water, within about 3 mins, I started shaking, feeling cold, dizzy, lips turning a bit purple, for the first in my life I felt like I’m out of my body. Then my friend gave me a banana and I had 2 bites, I checked my blood sugar 4.3, then waited a few minutes 5.7, then drop to 4.9. Then my friend drove me to my doctor, on the way I had some honey water and when we got there I felt better. I told the GP i’m on keto and told her my blood sugar numbers, she said you need to be careful with blood sugar on keto diet, and asked me to go to the emergency in another place which is 200m away. Then I felt fine when we returned to car and I decided to go home. Later after dinner, I checked blood sugar 5.7, and everything returned to normal.
I really dont know why this happened, and it’s the first time in my life I experienced a hypoglycemia attach. I didn’t add extra salt or electrolytes in my water for the past 4 months on keto, I drunk a lot of plain water daily and everything seemed fine until I felt pain all over my body and then used the baking soda and salt and lemon tips.
Anyone have experienced the same or anyone have any idea what’s going on here? And what should I do now? Thank you and wish you all success in your journeys.
