Everytime I eat food/drink water, as HEALTHY as I try to be, my brain begins to feel crazy! I can feel things actully happening up inside of it, it sorta like when your stomache is growling or if your food is digesting in your stomache, I can feel and hear noises in my brain. It bothers my nerve causing me nerve pain and makes me want to bang my head up against the wall, blow my brains out, it effects my mood and my behavior. When I even just turn my head to look another way, it feels like my skull has popped or something. It is sooo crazy! Its all food related! I was told that I have leaky gut syndrome. I feel like my brain is toxic, poisonous, full of yeast or something!!! I have been going back and fourth to the Drs about this for the past 2 years. I was even put on psych drugs, but that has made it ALL WORSE!!! Anyone has any answers for me? It like my blood brain barrier has been damaged and allows some of the particles of all the foods that I eat to pass through that barrier and messes with my brain chemicals/brain cells.

  • Though this post seemed a little odd at first when I read it... I believe you and would suggest for you to see a neurologist. There is definitely a problem with the brain and a neurologist can help diagnose that. It could be serious and I would not delay.

  • I'm sorry to hear your story. I had the same symptom but not nearly as bad as you describe it. I came ill with something suddenly with increased heartbeat and weakness, the next day I was feeling a little better but when I tried to eat I felt really bad, dizzy and anguished. This symptom went away in time (a few weeks). I also noticed that it was worse when I drank cold beverages and also I stay away from stimulants (tea, coffee, chocolate, alcohol) and things with chemicals like aspartame (sodas, candy, big long etc).So far the only test result which came back abnormaly was my TSH (months after the onset) so I think the dizziness caused by swallowing could have been thyroid hormone going into my blood stream; but when I tell doctors things like this they look at me like it's not up to me to decide what's going on. I was put on antidepressants but refused to take them because I was depressed before and I know this is not what I have now; I know these meds are serious so again I'm sorry you had to take them when you didn't need them.
