No one seems to know why it is i am getting a running nose for the last 3 days days of 100% compliance with paleo. (previous question) I had been doing 85% compliance for 5 weeks but had a short fall by drinking a bit of alcohol over a 2 week period at xmas. (1-2 glasses of wine almost daily, this is alot for me) and also eating chocolates and deserts. So i decide to go 100% and i find that for the past 3 days i am thoroughly exhausted by the end of the day, i am also cranky and have a low grade headache and tinitis (plus the nasal drip) despite the xmas binge i was still eating 70% paleo during that 2 weeks, plus i got sick with a nasty flu 2 weeks into the 85% compliance. when i first started... sigh... It seems going 100% has made me feel worse, but i am hoping things will get better? will it?

Before I try to respond I just want to understand what you consider "100% paleo". ... I get a little thrown off by people putting percentages on it since every person's paleo is different. You could be 100% paleo by eating nothing but apricots and coconut oil for all I know. What exactly do you consider "100% paleo"?

thank you , im afraid i live in australia so i was unaware of the time being 2am in america (oops:) it seems it has cleared up now and all this was followed up by a headache for 3 days and then yesterday i started crying in the local paleo restaurant because i was losing it due to carb withdrawals. The owner of the shop was very nice and helped me to understand what was happening to me on a pysical and emotional level. Its been 8 days straight now and i do feel a lot better today although still quite tired.

Putting this together with your other post. It sounds like you have an upper respiratory tract infection or a respiratory syncytial virus.
Go see a doctor. If it's a virus, you will feel better in 4-8 days. If it's a bacteria, get an anti-biotic (regardless of what people will say here).
Also, asking a question at 2am EST on Jan 2nd and expecting to get a response within 5 hours is a bit far-reaching. Give people some time to respond. Also, if you put these two questions together you would have gotten a better response.
