I've been eating low carb for two weeks. I started off eating no grains, no sugar, and no fruit. I was primarily eating animal protein, non starchy vegetables, nuts, seeds, and some full fat dairy. A few days into my low carb eating, a cold I had turned into bronchitis. They gave me some meds for the bronchitis and a few days later I started having dizzy spells. I went to my doctor and found out that my BP was really high (I don't have high BP) probably due to the meds. Additionally, I was showing signs of dehydration, which was probably from a combination of being new to low carb and the bronchitis meds. The doctor told me to add in 3 fruits and drink a lot of water. I also stopped the meds.
I have now been off the bronchitis meds and eating my three fruits for 4 days and I'm still suffering from dizzy spells. I'm waiting on some bloodwork results, but I wonder if anyone has had these types of dizzy spells with low carb even 2 weeks into it. I'm not even really low carb anymore since I'm eating the fruits, but I wonder how much of this can be from my new eating plan or if it's all bronchitis related. I'm starting to wonder if there's some inner ear infection going on, since that can cause dizziness.
Sorry for the long post. I would appreciate any input.
