Common Questions and Answers about Diabetes symptoms lightheadedness

Avatar f tn Hi Welcome to the MedHelp forum! The symptoms could be due to hormonal imbalance of PCOD, anemia, diabetes, hypothyroidism, or due to kidney or liver problems. Another possibility is sleep disturbances (like sleep apnea, imbalance of rapid eye and non rapid eye movement sleep etc.). You may sleep your customary 7-8 hours and yet feel fatigued. You need sleep studies to rule this out.
Avatar n tn I have been experiencing severe lightheadedness (I just feel spacey or like I'm going to faint but don't) for the past year while driving or walking quickly. Afterwards, I feel kind of shaky for a while. I saw my doctor and he ran some blood tests (nothing showed) but said he'd take my licence away if I came back to see him about it.
Avatar m tn My husband has been experiencing lightheadedness & head pain. He does not like to use the term headache as it is more of a pain in his head, on a scale of 1 - 10, it is never worse than a 3 or 4. The lightheadedness happens quite often and seems to be the most hindering for him. He also describes having this feeling right after drinking or eating. Even if it is only taking a drink of water.
Avatar n tn I'm sorry to hear you're having difficulty. Your symptoms may well be due to your diabetes. Patients with type 1 diabetes often develop nerve damage over time as you know. This nerve damage can cause autonomic instability and lightheadedness. If you have not had an echocardiogram you need one for evaluation of your valves. Severe aortic stenosis can also cause lightheadedness and low BP, especially after receiving nitroglycerin. Best of luck.
Avatar n tn In cardiac disorders there is inadequate pumping of blood and in lung disorders there is inadequate oxygenation. Symptoms are usually aggravated with exercise in cardiac disorders. Diabetes mellitus and hypertension can cause these symptoms. Again inadequate sleep, hypoglycemia, anemia and vitamin deficiencies can aggravate your symptoms of lightheadedness. You will need to consult your primary care physician for a proper evaluation. Regards.
Avatar n tn I wouldn't be pushing my body until I found out what is causing these symptoms. You sound like a very active person that doesn't dwell on sickness. Symptoms are the first sign something is not right. And if they are persistant, they need to find out what that something is.
Avatar f tn Hi and thanks for using the forum. If you are worried you should see your primary doctor. Do you have a history of diabetes in your family? At your age, your metabolism tends to be very fast, so it is not unusual to feel really hungry. Some girls are prone to yeast infections, but if you still have the itching despite being treated for the yeast infection, you should see your doctor (OB/GYN if you have one) about that.
Avatar m tn vomiting, dizziness, slight pain in my heart, and diarrhea. I could not even drink water, and I lost a bit weight. I visited a general practitioner who told me that it was due to fatigue, stress, or food poisoning. He prescribed multivitamins (effervescent), medicine containing magnesium, and some capsules for the stomach. After a week I felt better. Almost a month and half later, I fell sick again, but this time it was very serious. I almost DIED. I had the same symptoms, except diarrhea.
Avatar n tn Other symptoms, beside lightheadedness? If it was FOOD ALLERGY (probably to fish, shellfish, nuts or tree-nuts), you'd probably also notice throat or skin itching, lips or face swelling, transient rash, or diarrhea. If lightheadedness occur only after particular food, you should have a skin test for allergy.
Avatar n tn Hello, Headaches,lightheadedness and clicking can be explained by sinusitis but numbness and tingling are not related to sinusitis. Are you a diabetic or do you take alcohol?Such numbness is common in alcoholics and metabolic disorders like diabetes, hypothyroidism, and hypoparathyroidismThey can also be due to peripheral vascular disease, vitamin B12 deficiency or malnutrition. Get your blood sugar and thyroid hormones levels evaluated.
Avatar f tn There are a number of conditions that can cause your symptoms, ranging from eating disorders to diabetes... once we see your labs, we'll have a better idea.
Avatar f tn I also had to have a colonoscopy last year where they removed a pre cancerous polyp. My mom has thyroid problems, diabetes and fybromialgia. It seems like at least one person in my family has or has had everything...so it makes me a little nervous. I have had blood tests and thyroid tests and everything comes back normal. It's like i'll feel good for a week and then for the next few months i'll get one symptom for awhile and then that will leave and i'll get another...

Avatar n tn Eventually, these headaches changed to last throughout the day but not all the time, just a few minutes usually here and there. In addition, I've had other disconcerting symptoms such as really weak legs and arms and just generally feeling "off." I can’t decide if my arms and legs feel like they’re losing circulation or are just weak feeling. I constantly feel like I'm going to pass out and am dizzy and lightheaded pretty much at all times.
Avatar m tn Shakiness Nervousness or anxiety Sweating, chills and clamminess Irritability or impatience Confusion, including delirium Rapid/fast heartbeat Lightheadedness or dizziness Hunger and nausea Sleepiness Blurred/impaired vision Tingling or numbness in the lips or tongue Headaches Weakness or fatigue Anger, stubbornness, or sadness Lack of coordination Nightmares or crying out during sleep Seizures Unconsciousness The above are hypoglycemia symptoms. Most of your symptoms are in that list.

Avatar m tn I was sitting on the couch writing in my daughters baby book when I all of a sudden became extremely dizzy and lightheaded which followed by nausea. I ignored the symptoms and finished doing laundry which I almost fainted during. I laid down on the couch to see if it would help but the room started spinning. I ate a piece of candy thinking it was low sugar and that didn't help either. After awhile the dizziness got a little better but it still present as well as the nausea.
385286 tn?1200091519 Hi, How are you? Your symptoms seem to be due to excessive anxiety, stress, sleep deprivation or anemia. I would suggest you to make sure that you eat regularly to avoid hypoglycemia, sleep for at least 8 hrs in the night, and maintain hydration. Also you can get your blood hemoglobin levels checked, if you not done so already to rule out anemia. Breathing exercises and meditation will also help you.
Avatar n tn Your symptoms of headaches, shakes and lightheadedness sound like hypoglycemia, which is LOW blood sugar. Other symptoms would be if you get hot and break out in a sweat, find yourself feeling confused or perhaps depressed or irritable, or find yourself yawning for no reason. This can happen to people when they have not eaten in a long time or if they eat something that has a lot of quickly digested carbohydrates that cause the pancreas to be stimulated too much.
Avatar n tn EKG, Stress Echo, CT scan with contrast, general lab work. Nothing yet has come up., The other associated symptoms are lightheadedness (at time really bad), some shortness of breath, decreased exercise tolerance, overall fatigue, especially in the legs and arms after physical exertion. I have tried beta blockers and lexpro, and muscle relaxants. Looking for any direction or suggestions as to where to look next. Feel free to email me directly too.
Avatar n tn It could be a few things... Have you had any blood tests to check for Anemia? It could also be Diabetes, but there are usually other symptoms involved as well. If you are a female, it could be pregnancy... But I think your best bet is Anemia. You should go to the doctor to get a blood test, and if you don't have insurance, you can get a blood test done at the hospital for like, $75, if you're really worried about it.
Avatar n tn I don't know if this will help you but here is my story. In the spring of 2003, I began experiencing all of the symptoms you describe (lightheadedness, spaced out feeling, nausea, teeth/jaw pain, ear ringing, difficulty concentrating). I also experienced a lot of skin sensations such as tingling, prickling, tickling, pin pricks, ear tickling, flickering light in peripheral vision, etc. I have also had many tests that indicate nothing is wrong.
Avatar n tn Low hemoglobin levels can also give you these symptoms. Migraine with aura can also explain your symptoms. Auras are usually unpleasant sensations that accompany a headache attack whether before, during,or after the episode. Rare causes would include a brain mass or lesion but your symptoms does not jive with such conditions. I suggest you have this evaluated by your doctor. Regards and God bless.
Avatar n tn For these conditions, treatment is directed symptomatically. Common causes for this symptoms include changes in blood pressure (high or low) or metabolic problems more commonly diabetes. Your situation will really entail a lot of patience and a very good physician-patient relationship. I hope you and your doctors can clinch the diagnosis soon. Take care and God bless.
Avatar f tn I have been experiencing some unusual symptoms that are quite worrisome to me and I was wondering if anyone else has experienced these symptoms before. They started about a week after I had my son. I was diagnosed with pregnancy induced hypertension at 36 weeks. After I had my son, my Dr. put me on Meteprolol because my BP never went down!!! So, about a week after I had him I started experiencing some numbness and tingling in my right calf.
Avatar n tn Addison's(autoimmune adrenal disease) can give you some of those symptoms, and is often associated with other autoimmune diseases like Type 1 diabetes and vitiligo. It is very important that you have this done soon--please contact your doctor as soon as possible about this. If in the meantime you feel unwell with lightheadedness, nausea, vomiting and abdominal pain, please go to your nearest ER as this could signal adrenal crisis(life threatening).
