Hypoglycemia and dizziness

Common Questions and Answers about Hypoglycemia and dizziness

hypoglycemia

There is no proven info regarding diet, and hypoglycemia is often misdiagnosed, either way -- those who have it are often told they don't and those who don't are often told they do. The real consideration here is how you feel, and given your age and activity I'd say you're problem is a whole lot less than those of most of us. You're doing well, so you can just continue what you're doing, assuming that's just the way you are.
I am 16 years old and I have had back problem for about 2 years. The doctors dont know what it is being cause by. Lately i have had sharp pains in my left chest. i have also been very dizzy. I am always tired even after a full night of sleep. Everyone on my mamas side of the family is diabetic? My teacher who used to be a paramedic said i could be hypoglycemic.
Actoplusmet along with diet has caused daily reading to be perfectly between 80 and 120 and A1C levels have averaged between 5.5 and 5.0. This is all without any exercise program (I do stand and walk all day, but that's all). All of this is to say that I want to take as few medications as possible. I was also prescribed Lexapro, Lamictal, and Welbutrin for dystymia and anxiety. I recently taperd off the Lexapro.
years ago when I was going to graduate school (never came close to finishing, and one of the reasons was hypoglycemia and panic attacks...and plain ole immaturity if I'm honest with myself). Anyway, I'd be in class and start to feel faint, which of course put me into a state of panic, then get a huge panic attack...I had no idea what panic attacks were, I thought I was: A. going crazy....and B. about to die...
But after discontinuing it, it rarely can cause dizziness. The other causes could be use of allegro D, or hypotension, hypoglycemia etc. Consult your physician for complete evaluation and further assistance on treatment. Best.
Cervical spondylitis and ear problems also cause dizziness on changing the position of the neck. Other causes of dizziness are anemia, GERD, hypoglycemia or low sugar and some endocrine problems. Hypoglycemia is ruled out if your friend is dizzy after food. There is a possibility of postural hypotension with blood rushing to stomach area after food. GERD or gastric reflux with stomach ulcer is another possibility. Hope this helps.
Try eating every three hours, and if its like your suddenly weak and the dizziness comes on eat something sweet and the relief comes faster. Hypoglycemia is the opposit of diabeties. Hope this helps! And don't freak out about the aneurism thing it sounds alot like low blood sugar to me.
Hi, dizziness could be due to abnormal thyroid status, hypoglycemia, hypotension, iron deficiency anemia, brain lesion etc. You should consult doctor and get yourself investigated. Get hemoglobin, thyroid levels done. For more information visit http://www.mayoclinic.
Hi, hydrocodone is associated with dizziness, please get the dose adjusted. Could you please specify the medicines you are on and since when? Dizziness is associated with number of causes like anxiety, hypotension, hypoglycemia, inner ear disorder etc. Do you have some other symptoms too?
Consult a cardiologist and rule out postural hypotension, hypertension, cardiac myopathies, valve lesions, arrhythmias, etc. anemia, hypoglycemia, and dehydration are other common causes of dizziness. If these are ruled out and this seems to be due to the adverse effect of the drug, it should be metabolized soon. Take care.
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 you have an accompanying headache then you must also look at benign intracranial hypertension.

This can lead to impaired blood flow through these arteries and so dizziness. Ear infections and other causes like Meniere’s disease or inner ear diseases can lead to dizziness. If there is any ear pain or tinnitus along with then it may be the possibility.Pls get yourself evaluated for that. Get the blood sugar evaluated and an ECG done.CT brain is also useful if a brain injury is suspected to be the cause of vertigo. The choice of treatment will depend on the diagnosis.
Hello, First and foremost, regular estimation of blood sugar is important as hypoglycemia can lead to dizziness. Also get your blood pressure monitored as orthostatic hypotension due to sudden decrease in systolic BP can also cause dizziness. Sometimes, there are partial or complete blockages in the arteries that supply the brain with blood.
Hello, Important causes of dizziness include hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) or hypotension (low blood pressure) .Pls get your mother evaluated for that. Sometimes lack of proper sleep or taking stress can also lead to dizziness. Sometimes, there are partial or complete blockages in the arteries that supply the brain with blood.
You can discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined. Dizziness could be due to postural hypotension (blood pressure falling with change of position), internal ear problems and cervical spondylitis or compression of cervical spinal nerves. All these cause dizziness when you get up from lying down position or when you change position that results in a change in the level of your head. Cervical spondylitis and ear problems also cause dizziness on changing the position of the neck.
) Well, to start with the basics, are you getting enough rest and eating well? The dizziness could have something to do with fatigue and/or your blood sugar. I am not a doctor, so don't quote me on that, but you may want to get tested for diabetes or hypoglycemia. The pains could be a number of things. I am not sure of what to say to that. I recommend that you see your primary doctor and discuss these things with him/her.
Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! Anemia could be a cause and so also hypoglycemia. It can also be severe acidity. Take a multivitamin pill. Eat at regular intervals as you are now doing. Take Omeprazole empty stomach in morning and an antacid gel at bedtime. Refrain from smoking, alcohol, fuzzy drinks, caffeine, and spicy food. See if this helps. Also get your BP checked to see if it is not too high or too low. It can also be stress and lack of proper sleep.
My husband has had dizziness on and off for about 4 years now. He has had a CT and MRI of the head, the most recent of which showed sinusitis. The Dr. prescribed a steroid nasal spray that provided no relief. He has been to an ENT MD,& a neurologist with no answers as to why the dizziness persists. It is not constant, it could be gone for many days, then return for a few and be gone again.
but no pain, gave me nasonex nasal spray and said go see and ENT the dizziness got very bad one night so i went to the ER and they did a catscan and said everything was fine, sent me home with meclizine, and that worked prettty well. went to ENT last week for an allergy test, allergic to cockroaches,dust, and feathers but nothing serious and i was BARELY allergic to those.
I was in the hospital three times for dizziness and other symptoms... and all the tests came back 'normal'. If you consume aspartame (Equal, Nutrasweet, SugarTwin) try cutting it from your diet for a while.
You might be able to bypass the MRI and be sent to a ENT dr..... save you some money along the way..... Hope this helps and that you feel better very soon......
i have been suffering with dizziness constantly, i dont feel faint or off balance, my temples just feel pressured and tight at times and feels sore when i press on them, i also feel some pressure in my teeth, mostly the back ones. started about 11/2 year ago. i also have palpitations at times, i may be free from it for 2-3 months then it comes back again. i have suffered from insomnia as well but not constantly. my main problem at this point is the dizziness, i dont feel it while lying down.
Even mild dehydration can cause weakness, dizziness and fatigue. Fever, vomiting, severe diarrhea, overuse of diuretics and strenuous exercise can all lead to dehydration. Far more serious is hypovolemic shock, a life-threatening complication of dehydration. It occurs when low blood volume causes a sudden drop in blood pressure and a corresponding reduction in the amount of oxygen reaching your tissues. If untreated, severe hypovolemic shock can cause death within a few minutes or hours.
If your husband did not have blindness literally, but suffered from episodes of blackouts then those could be due to postural hypotension (falling with change of position), internal ear problems, cervical spondylitis, anemia, GERD, hypoglycemia or low sugar and some endocrine problems. However, this could also be an episode of transient ischemic attack wherein the blood supply to brain is temporarily cut off. The episodes last for a maximum of 24 hours and then resolve or a new symptom starts.
Since you have temperature fluctuations the first things to be ruled out are thyroid disorders, adrenal gland problems, anemia, diabetes, hypoglycemia and vasovagal attacks. There are many other causes of dizziness. It is difficult to comment without examination. I am just enumerating the possible causes. You can discuss this with your doctor and get yourself examined.
I am totally amazed at how many people have this problem with dizziness brain fog and sinus problems how could these doctors not know what is going on I have also had all these symptoms had two mris seen two doctors allergy speciallist and neuerologist my neuerologist gave me spinal tap to rule out ms thank goodness it was negative had bloodwork done all normal my neuerologist seems to think that anxiety is causing this he said its number one reason for dizziness I dont know what to beli
I am a 37 year old office worker sitting in front of a computer all day. A couple of months ago at work, about 1pm, before lunch i felt dizzy with blurred vision. I stood up and almost fainted! I had tingling sensations in my arms, i thought i was having a stroke or heart attack! They called an ambulance, my blood pressure was 220/140 & they shipped me off to hospital. They ran tests (bloods, CT+MRI+kidney+chest scans) but couldn't find anything. They sent me home with BP medication.
When I then wake up around 10am, I notice immediately that I have a headache coming on and i feel dizzy. I'll go and eat and the dizziness will go away within a half hour but the headache that I had usually starts getting worse and then I end up having a bad headache that lasts the whole day even if I am eating. I have to take tylonal to make it feel better, but sometimes that doesn't even help. Is this normal?
Hi! Yes, hypoglycemia can occur and this is known as Dumping Syndrome or rapid gastric emptying following gastric bypass surgery. Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, dizziness, shivering (due to hypoglycemia) etc. This is treated by taking small frequent meals, drinking fluids in between meals, taking more of proteins and less of carbohydrates and no simple sugars. Generally this is due to increased secretion of insulin from the pancreas.
