Hi guys just wanted your opinion on what happened today when I went out to dinner.
I had a green tea with a burger (without the bun) and sweet potato fries. I am grain free and caffeine free (due to anxiety issues) and I had a mini panic attack during my meal.
I am wondering if it was the small bit of gluten in the burger (wheat crumbs) or the green tea from David's that caused the jolt. Or maybe it was me worrying to much. I didn't think the little caffeine in tea would do that?

The only time I've had such things is if I've gone very low carb for too long while fasting more than 16 hours - that feeling, at least in my case, is of cortisol being used to signal gluconeogenesis. Were you by any chance fasting, or have you recently gone very low carb? Strangely you mention sweet potato fries, that should provide some carbs, hopefully enough to prevent that. If you're not VLC/fasting, then, at least you can rule that out.
