Hey guys I am 21 year old male.. wieghing about 160 pounds and having constant lightheatedness with headaches. It started about two months ago i used to get lightheaded periodically say i would get up to fast or just randomly if i am standing still. It would hit me and didnt think much about it. This past month i was sick pretty bad twice(cough, cold, stuffy nose). The lightheadtedness gradually worsened, i took some over the counter medications for the sickness. I was lightheaded and just out of it but i thought it was just the meds. I got a bit better its been about a week and a half since that. But now i am always lightheaded and headaches come and go. I am extra tired and just feel like doing nothing. I cannot work, cannot goto school. When i am working ill get dizzy and feel like falling over. I went to my family doc and she checked my bp and it was 140 she said it might be that but i cannot give a diagnosis from one test. Then I almost passed out and went to the hospital they checked my bp andit was at 121 and did some blood tests. The doctor said everything was fine. He said it could be apart of virus going around. I dont believe it and i will go do some further tests. Its constant and doesn't stop

any help thank you

You seem to be showing symptoms of hypoglycemia. Good luck finding a diagnosis.
