I recently just moved from Indonesia to Italy. I've been here for about a month now and I've recently started feeling absolutely terrible. For the first time my period was late and I've been having headaches for three days non stop (again, never before) that feel a lot like pressure building up in my head. And don't get me started on the SUGAR cravings that have hit again. They're cheap this time of the year so I've been stuffing my face with oranges. It's borderline depressing.
Any idea what could be causing this? My move was very smooth and emotionally I've had no stress. Except for this one day where I ate fish and got a full blown allergy reaction like never before. Since that event I've kept away from seafood which I had been eating pretty much daily when I was in Indonesia. I think that has something to do with my current state but I can't seem to imagine what nutrient I've been low on since I've stopped eating fish. The sudden change in Omega 3 intake? I've been on 3 week vacations with no seafood in sight without these symptoms.
So I'm very lost.. I'm wondering if anyone has experienced/gone through anything similar?

I find the Mediterranean diet quite inflammatory. Lots of wheat products first and foremost, then wine, lots of cured meat with large amounts of black pepper, small amounts of fresh meat and fish, and very little root crops. Little of other hearty vegetables, such as cabbage. Olive oil is a good fat but not the best, most definitely not as good as coconut, and some of the foods there (such as fava beans) allergenic. I trust that you are not cooking with seed oils...
