5 Point Comments - It Helped Me a Lot

I take several pieces of very dark chocolate every day, about 3 pcs. More than 80% cocoa. Friend found a cheap bar in the supermarkt. It gives me energy and in the mean time has a little calming effect on my inner state of being wired. I nearly always can have it after I was sick and nauseous. Easy eating in the dark.

I get an odd headache with chocolate since I've been ill. It's really unpleasant, but chocolate is something I've had a hard time giving up. A tiny piece doesn't usually bother me, but more definitely does.

I became allergic to caffeine including chocolate.

happy but too stimulated for an hour –> brain and muscle exhaustion for rest of the day
similar effect with coffee and stimulating herbs like ginseng

When I eat dark chocolate without sugar, I get horribly sleepy within about 30 minutes. So much that I just fall asleep even when I am sitting upright. I have this same thing with eggs.
The sleepiness and fogginess does not go away for hours. It resembles a diabetic sort of reaction, but there was no sugar. I wonder if it is the tryptophan or some type of allergy or intollerance. Its horrible though, and only happens with dark chocolate. A piece as big as a sugarcube is already enough for this effect.
