Diet and anxiety

Hi there, I´m Virginia, I´m 37 and I was diagnosed with GAD 15 years ago. I was doing quite fine, but lately I´m feeling more anxious than ever (shaky hands, confusion, fatigue). The only thing that changed is my diet. I stopped eating meat like a month ago and I wonder if this "new anxiety" could be related to that.

Does anybody know if this could be the case or have gone through something similar?

Thank you!

It sounds like its possible that you had a chemical change in your body, was meat a large part of your diet before the anxiety? Also has it been going on for the entire time that you have been on this diet, or is it just recently

Hi, thanks for your answer. Actually I didn't eat that much meat, probably twice a week. (Which is not a lot for my country, Uruguay) I can't tell you exactly but I think it has been going on for about 3 weeks now, and I started my diet a month ago or so. I'm going to start eating meat again and see what happens... I let you know ;-)
