Just a thought.... here stores are not allowed to sell energy drinks to children as they are susceptible to passing out and actually having heart problems from them. At least one teen I know of died due to this. Of course that doesn't stop kids from drinking the stuff, they just get an adult to buy it. This newspaper article was from 4 years ago:
Coupled with your low food intake on IP (or any strict diet) and your exercise (which is not supposed to be done during P1 except for easy walking) this may be the cause of your troubles especially since you say your sugars tested OK.
There's no such thing as 110%, lol. If you are off protocol in either direction
it's less than 100% following instructions... I hope you & mum get feeling better very soon.
ETA quote from a 2014 article in Canada.com: "Energy drinks have been associated with a number of adverse health effects, including cardiovascular symptoms, sleep disorders, nervousness and nausea. The side-effects are caused by the beverages’ high concentration of caffeine." "“We also found something very interesting,” said principal investigator Sunday Azagba, a researcher at the Propel Centre for Population Health Impact at the University of Waterloo in southwestern Ontario. “The more intense users tend to be more likely to be depressed, they’re more likely to have substance use,” he said, referring to alcohol and marijuana."
"Kathleen Miller, a senior scientist at the Research Institute on Addictions at the University at Buffalo, said the findings are troubling but not surprising, as they’re in line with the body of emerging evidence on energy drinks and their potential effects."
One of the articles also mentioned that the herbs like ginseng, etc that are added to some drinks can react with meds and users should check on this with their doctor or pharmacist. In case you are on meds for MS.
