Strange tingling head.
 
This may sound crazy but I have been doing NK LCHF for about 3 months now and my head tingles like I am on diet pills. Don't care for it but was wondering if I am alone on this one. Feel great otherwise.:stars:

Add more salt and maybe eat some avocado.

I add salt to my water and drink broth daily. I love avocados and eat at least 1 a week. I also take turmeric capsules and Relora so maybe one of those would be the culprit. Thanks for your reply!

Maybe the turmeric and relora. try removing these from your diet to see if it helps.

Thank you. Process of elimination has begun.

Are you on any medication?

sammy1267 05-13-2014 06:44 AM

No no meds.

What I got was a buzzing. I believe it was in the first few months. I no longer get it at all.

sammy1267 05-13-2014 10:22 AM

Yes that is a word I would use to describe it. Thank you! I even had my head checked for those scary things kids come in contact with at school. Won't even say the word but dang this is one weird side effect

clackley 05-13-2014 10:30 AM

Yes, I thought so as well. I also would wake with it. A bit unnerving!

Just started tingling
 
I am 54, menopausal and I have been LCHF for about 3 months, had gallbladder issues and trouble fat adapting. I was hoping the tingling in my head was finally being in ketosis. Does that sound right?

I have been at about 5% carb 15% protein and 80% fat

clackley 11-08-2016 06:17 AM

It might be. How are you feeling otherwise?

When did it start? Right after you started NK or after several weeks?

I went HFLC and got dizziness as well. I was drinking bouillon and using Lite salt. I ended up increasing my carbs. Its a bit unnerving. Could be low blood sugar I think. I don't think its low BP. Mine was higher.

If a person experiences low blood sugar via a keto woe, it may mean that they have blood sugar control issues and that is a problem regulating blood sugar which is a precursor or flat out diebetes type 2. The solution is tight carb consumption.
