On my second day of re-start & this damn headache is driving me mad, i forgot about this part of ssing. I've been glugging down the water :tear_drop: :tear_drop: :tear_drop: on my 3rd litre now, popped some headache pills but it's not helping. I know that being on the computer is not gonna help but it's keeping me 'away from the cookie jar'...lol I feel so hungry but i'm not gonna give in can't wait for ketosis to set in to stop these hungar pangs....Arghhhh!!!!!

Don't wanna depress you .... I hope you are over it quicker than me .... but I am on day #5 now and I still have a headache!! It is driving me mad. I may have to start looking for some other cause, because I no longer think this is just down to SSing .....
Are you taking anything for it steve? How much water are you drinking? I have awful headaches on SS if i drink less than 4 litres of the good stuff. I also have caffeine withdrawal!!

Really hope you feel better soon though xxx

Hi Fuzzys Angel

Stick with it hun, another day or two and you'll be back in Ketosis - and then the worst of it will be over.

I am drinking 5+ litres a day (I drink 2+ even when not on this diet), so I do not think it is dehydration. Also, I have a caffeine intolerance, so I have only taken caffeine-free drinks for a long while now, so its not caffeine withdrawal either.

The options I can think of is that it is still carb withdrawal, something to do with the illness, or it is still the remnents of my muscle pull causing problems.

I doubt that it is carb-withdrawal, not after 5 days. All my glycogen should have gone by now and I should easily be in ketosis, though am not registering. I am not worried about that as I rarely registered in ketosis by the stix when losing initially, and I lost 102 lbs then!

As to the muscle pull, well all feels well there, so it probably is not that. My money is on it just being one of the symptoms of the "cold" I have been going through for a couple of days, but that is on the mend now also.

And to answer the question (eventually :)), no I am not taking anything for it - not medicine wise anyway. I am only trying "alternative" solutions such as 4-Head etc.
5litres?! Oh my god you are a legend :D

Hope you feel better soon xxx

Hi guys, now on day 3 of ssing & this headache is still driving me mad woke up with it and haven't slept very well, been having nightmares all night!. I'm in ketosis - just!- but feel awful, been for a long walk with hubby thought that might clear my head but it hasn't :( feeling sick, dizzy & hungry & have been like this for the past 3 days (scales already show 5lbs down) i don't remember feeling like this last time but tomorrow is day 4 & i'm hoping that i'll be feeling much better, i should be getting over the worst of it by the end of the day.

Drinking plenty of water :tear_drop: :tear_drop: :tear_drop: so i don't think that has anything to do with it, i've almost finished my 4th litre :confused:

Anyother advice would be apprechiated....xxx

Sorry - I have no advice for you!! I am suffering the same thing, nothing seems to shift it at all. I am just hoping it goes when this cold clears up - I have run out of ideas to be honest!

Hi Mandi,

Also on day 3, I seem to have an intermittent headache, which is annoying.
No advice from me either, just to let you know you are not suffering alone :)
