  • I feel bad bad BAD... help?

    I feel sick right now. I mean like all out heart-fluttering chest-tight short-of-breath cinnamon-roll sugar-rush sick.

    This feels like a SUGAR RUSH.

    I began feeling this way when I ate at a local restaurant. I hardly ever EVER eat out, but was meeting with some out of town friends and-- oh that is beside the point. I love Ceviche and ordered it. I had a few bites of salsa (no chips, dur) and a few bites of my ceviche when I just instantly began feeling like this. I thought-- though-- if it had sugar in it, shouldn't it be a more delayed reaction? Like... WTF could make me feel like this within a few bites?! I'm used to lime / lemon juice ceviche... maybe it was orange juice? Even then, with only having eaten a few ounces of ceviche, how much orange-juice sugar could I have eaten? I sent it back when I felt something wasn't right (I hate sending stuff back). They were understanding and good and gave me no issues-- its a very respectable little place with local, fresh ingredients... but...

    WTF coulda happened?!



    PS-- I called the restaurant and the manager said she'd gladly call me back with the ingredients of those two items plus anything else I wondered about, but I'm thinking they were in a Saturday rush (I understand) so I'll have to wait to find out.

    Could you have a bit of food poisoning?

      The speed of the reaction makes me think allergy of some kind.

        I don't feel like there was anything wrong with the fish and I don't have that stomach-issue food poisoning thing. I had the same thought, fl.. g.. flgatorfan.. Ah, Florida Gator Fan. Sometimes screennames are hard when your mind tries to say them! It feels just like sugar rush. I still feel bad. Afterward, I ate cheese, a hardboiled egg, some nuts-- I think my body was drawn to protein and fat sort of like a dog with a stomachache is just compelled to eat grass. Sigh. I don't know.

          Sounds like an allergic reaction to me, too. Maybe ride it out and see how you feel in 24 hours? Sorry to hear you're feeling so bad.

                Yeh I agree it could be an allergy.

                  No MSG. She said the ceviche had oranges and ketchup in it... we were both surprised at the ketchup. I figure it had HFCS in it... but how much could I have really eaten? The world may never know...

                  last time I felt like that, now that i think about it, was when I ate a 'orange juice sweetened' cranberry salad like two years ago at thanksgiving (pre-primal) and it made me feel like crap. However, when I eat the odd orange, it doesn't make me sick. Just the orange juice...???

                    Could you rule out the possibility you might have had some sort of anxiety/panic attack because of the food? I know Michael Pollen talks about this type of disorder where people get really obsessed with their food that it causes bouts of anxiety and full blown panic attacks. I know a few times when I have eaten out I felt pretty crappy when I questioned whether the fish or chicken they cooked might have been battered in flour. (I have gluten sensitivities)

                    People say I am on a "crazy" diet. What is so crazy about eating veggies, fruits, seafood and organ meats? Just because I don't eat whole wheat and processed food doesn't make my diet "crazy". Maybe everyone else with a SAD are the "crazy" ones for putting that junk in their system.

                      Well, what did the ketchup have in it?
                      TOMATO CONCENTRATE FROM RED RIPE TOMATOES, DISTILLED VINEGAR, HIGH FRUCTOSE CORN SYRUP, CORN SYRUP, SALT, SPICE, ONION POWDER, NATURAL FLAVORING.

                        Oh wow, what an interesting take! I can totally see that in most other situations (getting worked up about what you mightn't eaten even if you might not have) but at this restaurant in particular, no way! Its one of the (rare) places that I trust and feel comfortable with-- even despite this! Their salmon was real mesquite grilled and holy crap it was good. Maybe even better than mine. Maybe.

                          Nutmeg-- I'd much rather accept that as my issue (however sensitive to teensy amounts that renders me!?) than oranges! As rarely as I eat fruit... its still freakin' FRUIT! Though I have had a big Georgia peach that left me feeling faint before

                          THANKS everyone!
