My site suddenly became really slow in the last hour

Suddenly within the last hour, my store went from a < 2 second load time to >10 seconds. And I have no idea why. The only app I installed since then was the facebook app, and before that I only had Oberlo and shopify's own email marketing app installed. I promptly removed the facebook app but the store is still slow. Is there a way to shut down the store and reboot it much like a WordPress site or a site on your own server? Because I feel like that may solve the issue, at least hopefully

I also checked https://www.shopifystatus.com/ to see if it was an issue on their server side and apparently it isnt, so I'm quite lost with how to solve this

I also removed a product from my store via oberlo before the issues started, maybe that is it?

My website is www.miaosnacks.com

Thanks for any help

This is an accepted solution.

Solved it. Turns out it was the facebook app. Apparently I did not disconnect my account to the app properly, and when I was checking my store through chrome dev tools I saw a very long https call from facebook that caused the huge delay. Since it couldnt complete the call, it would loop and keep returning http errors. I solved it by reinstalling the facebook app and reconnecting my account. I am going to take the steps to disconnect the app properly now to ensure it doesn't happen again
