I recently had a blood work up done and it came back normal (again) so the clinic called me and simply said that "everything is fine." I really don't think it is. I first fainted seriously about three years ago, I landed on my teeth and got rug burn all over my face. The doctor couldn't figure it out so a nurse told me that it happens to everyone. Right before I passed out I got really pale, extremely hungry/nauseous, confused (I couldn't remember where I was or what was going on), and just couldn't think in general. It seems consistent with hypoglycemia, but the doctors at my HMO clinic refuse to think so without a confirming blood test.
I'm still having problems. Just about everyday I get very dizzy, which is helped by food. The other day at my work, I felt so confused that I didn't think I could drive home. Exteme hunger/nausea, inability to think, confusion, stupor, shakiness, anxiety, blurred vision, and generally acting drunk. I did anyway, which was not a good idea. I was literally nodding off at the wheel (something I never ever do at all). When I got home I ate and was better in minutes.
What's new over the past few weeks is that I'm extremely lethargic even though I've been sleeping at the very least 9 or 10 hours a day, my hair is falling out, horrible migraines and I've gained 15 pounds out of the blue.
No one will acknowledge that this is real, every time after they get the lab results back I get the same "it happens to everybody" which I don't think is true. I feel like something is very wrong and no one will help me. Next time I pass out I worry that I may not be so lucky and will lose my teeth or worse. Am I really alone on this?
