Huge hunger causing inescapable brain irrationality

Please help -
Apart from my current medical issues, a particular problem that I have no idea how to address is a strange hunger problem.

Basically if I do not regularly, specific foods my brain completely switches off. This also occurs if digestion is playing up (see notes at the bottom). This effects me most at night, where I will wake up ravenous. I try to go to sleep but my mind starts linking irrational thoughts. The longer I try to hold out, the hungrier and more irrational my brain gets.

Its as though my brain is blocked from being able to think rationally and gets to a state close to depression. Upon eating (and eating enough) my brain kicks in, is able to deal with any irrational thoughts (i.e. that was a stupid thing to think, back to sleep now) and I will be able to go back to sleep and think rationally and clearly.

This affects me significantly.

I have completed 2hr and 3hr GTT and the results have been relatively normal. More details can be provided if required I am fructose and lactose intolerant, and avoid these foods.

Height: 175cm
Weight: 63kg
Diet: Vegetables, lean meats, fish, nuts, good fats (i.e. olive oil), limited amounts of mutligrain (spelt, kamut or gluten free)
I avoid - fatty, processed and sugary food.

I have also been diagnosed with ME/CFS under the CDC criteria.

Feel free to add any questions as this is a difficult problem to articulate.
