I currently take one fish oil cap/day. I exercise daily and eat a very low bad fat diet (I eat only good fats), a good level of L.G. carbs and the correct amount of lean protein for my body weight/height every day (125 lb., 5'8').
Yes, I have stress in my life and sometimes am prone to anxiety attaches, but every time I increase my fish oil consumption, I get a nose bleed - I believe indicating that I am taking in too much fish oil - and maybe too many blood thinners from other sources?).
Well, I have borderline high blood pressure and very good cholesterol readings. I am wondering if there is anything else going on with me that I am not aware of - or should test.
I am also concerned about how I feel after my meals. I am always bloated to an extreme uncomfortable level, prior to each. I never used to feel like this before I started following Zone-like dietary advise. Also, I haven't had my period for a year now.
I am 33 years old, obviously female and terrified to go to the Docs.
I know I have to go but am hoping that I am just doing something stupid and need some advise.
Also, I tend to get "spacey" in the head - almost dizzy following meals; I wonder what I can do - or not do - to combat this.
Thanks for any advise you might have.
