Foods to take/avoid for post-SSRI nerve issues?s

Just wondering what folks that experienced tingly, numbness in nerves did to help the symptoms? 

 

I cant quite figure out what is harming or helping. Sometimes I think I find something that doesn't trigger the tingling,  like bananas,  only to find the next time I eat it I feel the sensations.

 

Is it even food or is this just something that comes and goes as it pleases?

It may just be coincidence.  If the issue happens every time/most times after eating or doing something then there is a reasonable probability that it is the cause.  If it only happens sometimes then there is less probability.

 

We need to be our own detectives.  Keeping a diary might help.  You would need to include foods, sleep, drugs, supplements,  activities, stresses (eg issue at work, argument with partner).  Try doing this for 2 to 3 months.

 

It may be that the first time you ate banana there was something else you ate and the combination caused it whereas the second time you only ate the banana and not the second thing.  Keeping a diary can make it easier to see a pattern.  It's no good trying to remember it.  You will need to write it down.

Will do. Thank you. Did you experience tingly/numbness?

 

Today has been a really bad day for me and sometimes it almost feels like I am slowly becoming paralyzed. Could this really just be from the SSRI?
