Remar brings up a good point regarding blood sugar. I would also make sure you're keeping yourself well hydrated.
I heart attack 4 years ago. Last ejection fraction 30-35%. I have been as low as 29% in the past. I have left ventricle dysfunction and C.A.D. About a week ago as I was returning from my daily walk I became very sick, I felt nausas and felt like I was going to pass out, I was sweating a lot around my head but did not seem to be cold and clammy. I had no chest,arm or any pain. I thought I might be having a heart attack. I was feeling good and this started in an instant.
Is it common to see fainting / low blood pressure (blood pressure changes) w/ Lupus? I had to be taking by ambulance to emergency last night because I had an almost complete black out, weakness in my legs, profuse sweating and tingling which ended up resolving itself after a few hours (although when it first started I wasn't sure I was going to be able to stay awake). I wonder if this is at all possible with Lupus?
Can low blood sugar cause dizziness and fainting ? I recovered in a minute and had extreme thirst. But the feeling of slight dizziness, heavy head and thiorst comes and goes for the last 4 days. What is it and what should i do ?
Hi, Is her blood pressure and blood sugar in the normal range? This could be due to vasovagal syncope, low blood sugar levels, low blood pressure. You need to consult your doctor to rule out the above as a cause of her symptoms. Is she eating well, sleeping well? Does she have any stress - work or home related? Does she have adequate water and fluids daily? Let us know the above details so that we may be able to help you.
I was diagnosed with Type 1 at the age of 50 (with a GC of 1250.) For five years previous to my diagnosis, I suffered blackouts (several each year). My endo thinks that the blackouts are different from the diabetes. This may be true because I never expereinced any of the given diabetes warning signs. There was never any increased urination. Never any increased thirst! Etc. What is the comment? Can Type 1 diabetic fainting happen (in adults) without the warning signs?
It could be low blood sugar (hypoglycemia) checking it once may not be enough, maybe ask for a sugar test .Are anxious about anything ?.
Its possible you have low blood sugar or are a little dehydrated. Have you tried eating anything when you feel these spells coming on? Are you drinking 6-8 glasses of water a day?
Endocrine problems, such as an underactive thyroid (called hypothyroidism), overactive thyroid (called hyperthyroidism), adrenal insufficiency (called Addison's disease), low blood sugar levels, and in some cases, diabetes, may lead to hypotension and hence lightheadedness and an off balance feeling. Certain types of epilepsies and seizures too can cause similar symptoms. If she has an accompanying headache then you must also look at benign intracranial hypertension.
She could be having irregular heartbeats that cause a lack of blood flow to the brain. Hopefully she is eating breakfast because low blood sugar (hypoglycemia)can cause this to happen as well.
Currently, my girlfriend takes great care at eating regular meals (at regular intervals) – thus avoiding the recurrence of such situations as much as possible (which raises my suspicion lest low blood sugar levels are possibly to blame here). It is also apparent that her olfaction is somewhat flawed, for that she often is unable to tell different odors apart (although certain perfumes might still make her feel nauseous for some reason, despite her not being able to distinguish between them).
So you should get the relevant investigations done - blood sugar level - fasting and post prandial; blood pressure monitoring - while sleeping if possible; blood sodium levels ( serum electrolytes) and consult a physician simultaneously.
Normally blood sugar levels rise after eating. What causes my blood sugar levels to drop after I eat? Even if I eat candy or other sugar sweets this happens. I experience a drop of sometimes 30-40 points. Could this be a pancreas issue or could this be related to the bowel resectioning I had two years ago? I take no medication for diabetes. I was only told by my gp to monitor blood sugar levels after a fasting blood sugar test was over 130. My A1C level is 4.6.
Possibilities that may need to be considered include acute episodes of low blood sugar, low blood pressure, electrolyte imbalance, autonomic disturbances, hormonal/ endocrine abnormalities, neurological infections, seizures, cardiovascular issues, micronutrient deficiencies etc. I would suggest getting her evaluated by an internist initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought. Hope this helps. Take care!
Low sugar levels (hypoglycaemia) can cause symptoms of feeling faint and possible collapse. You do not need to be a diabetic to experience hypoglycaemia. In hypoglycaemia, the sugar levels in the blood drop too low. Ensure that your daughter eats regularly. Chocolate and sugary foods will give her a blood rush and then drop dramatically. The types of foods she needs to eat at those that are slow energy release foods.
Cervical spondylitis and ear problems also cause dizziness on changing the position of the neck. Other causes are anemia, GERD, hypoglycemia or low sugar and some endocrine problems. Certain types of epilepsies and seizures too can cause similar symptoms. Since the fainting came during the day and after getting up from work any of the above possibilities can be the reason behind it. Hope this helps. Please let me know if there is any thing else and do keep me posted. Take care!
Prolonged standing, stress, dehydration, low blood sugar all can cause vasovagal syncope. Acute gastroenteritis, acute appendicitis, irritable bowel syndrome all can cause severe abdominal pain. It is best to consult a physician and get evaluated. A clinical examination and work up for above mentioned conditions will be helpful. Treatment will depend on the underlying cause. I hope it helps. Best luck and regards!
Just a few things that are known to cause blackout spells are extreme anemia, low blood pressure, low or high blood sugar, some cardiac syndromes - just to name a few. Your other symptoms make me think that evaluation by an endocrinologist and then maybe a neurologist could help lead to a diagnosis. Seeing a doctor for evaluation does not require a commitment to treatment. Maybe they would be comfortable getting some diagnostic information then the three of you discuss how to proceed.
She can't seem to tolerate blood pressure medications in any dosage--it causes her blood pressure to drop extremely low. She has had all sorts of tests for her high blood pressure with no causes found. Are there any vitamin supplements or specific foods which could help regulate her blood pressure? Is there something she should or shouldn't do first thing in the morning? Something she should or shouldn't eat? The only other medication she is on is synthroid.
I didn't bother telling him that I was still getting symptoms such as fluttering and palpitations and my BP is often low when I take it myself but is usually normal at the hospital or surgery because I'm anxious about being there. I am not an anxious person and often get these feelings even while meditating. I also often get chest pain, usually at night but sometimes during the day. I never usually go to the gp and tend to ignore things.
Visiual disturbances sound like you should get checked, and fainting etc/ dizziness you should have blood tests, you could be anemic. the other things I have no idea about but you really need to see a doc. in the mean time try to rest and stay hydrated with water. Good luck!
When the paramedics check my blood pressure, blood sugar and heart rate at the time I faint, it's perfectly normal. The cardiologist has given my heart a clean bill of health. I've reasearched vasovagal and the things that cause that have nothing to do with what I'm experiencing.
Hi, Thanks for writing in. It is important to rule out conditions like Migraine, Epilepsy, Dehydration, Low blood sugar levels, excessive anxiety and stress. Since he was last evaluated in 2005, it is important that he gets a clinical evaluation done. Meantime make sure he drinks enough water, sleeps for at least 8 hrs every night and maintain a headache diary to identify a trigger for his symptoms. Keep us posted!
Have you been tested for diabetes to make sure your blood sugar didn't go too low? There are too many things that could cause a faint, for us to even speculate.
One of them is diabetes, very low blood count (anaemia), if he has a urinary infection that can make him feel confused and talk nonsense. The doctor needs to do a thorough investigation of what is causing him to be like that. Take a urine specimen to the doctor when you go so that it can be tested as well. Go with him to his doctor to make sure he does not forget to mention all his symptoms. Write them down before you go so you don't foget anything.
I went to the doctors about it (after the 5th time it occured because I gave myself a concussion) They said it could be a heart murmur or I might have low blood sugar. After testing for both, ekg and such, they say its syncope related to anxiety. I thought that it may be the case but 2 nights ago i passed out in the middle of the night after waking to go to the bathroom. I hit my head, again, and briused myself so bad. After it happens I feel so horrible and out of it for like a day at least.
I had it so badly before I got so sick, that I use to pass out, did a tilt table test, which I failed and they named it Neurocardiogenic syncope. So yes, that seems to be a common thread. I also have a very low body temp. Hang in there.
I'm wondering if I should get my own son's blood sugar tested. It can't hurt. My friend found out her little girl's blood sugar would get too low and she had to eat a protein snack about every 2 to 3 hours, so she'd send some nuts or a cheese stick or something with her to school to eat between lunch for a snack with the teachers permission and it seemed to help quite a bit.
