Hope you are feeling much better so far as flare up is concerned. So far as the symptoms which you have mentioned are concerned, I too used to have them. There is a kind of heaviness. You feel you can't move your body. Lethargic, irritable, mood swings, body aches, and the likes.
So far as food is concerned, try something, which would help you in appetite. I used to have very tangy stuffs. Fresh lime soda, Ice creams,
Try to relax. Build your stamina by eating enough calories. Meditate. These withdrawal symptoms would go away very soon. Take care and keep us posted.
Have a sizzler.
