Hey all. I went paleo in May 2014 and then officially stopped paleo in April 2016. I was completely grain free at first but then added in rice. I was also recently diagnosed with Bipolar Disorder Type II in February 2016. I tried going off of paleo once before last November and then I was non-functioning (this was before I knew I was bipolar). I know there is some correlation between paleo and treating my bipolar disorder. I'm now on meds and thought I could go GF and be okay. That's where I am now.
Anywho, I went off of paleo. I was having a really hard time taking care of myself while I was getting treated for bipolar. I was not a successful paleo eater from the month of January to April. So I decided to try not to do it to make it easier on myself. I added dairy back in. i added more GF foods in. I started drinking soda for a treat, etc. About two weeks after I went off, I developed this massive stomach rash that my doctor told me is Pityriasis Rosea. 8 weeks laters and I still have it. I also developed terrible dandruff and have been losing more hair than normal. I also have some more brain fog and anxiety is coming back more.
Anyone have experience with going off of paleo and having some negative health effects?
