I don't know whats going on with me. I seem to get real dizzy a lot, everything seems like I'm in a dream. I get light headed, affraid I'm going to pass out. Scared to drive, I get tingleing sensations in my face, I can't here right, I feel out of it. I already take paxil for anxiety. I know it's not that. If I don't eat super carbed foods this happens. When I eat healthy. If I don't eat the second I'm hungry I get cranky and all these things I've mentioned start to happen. I think I might be Hypoglcimic(spelt wrong), but why would this happen so much? Could it be more than that? It took me an hour o drive twenty minutes the other day because I thought I was going to pass out, like I was seeing stars and it seemed like black clouds were closing in on me. I was with my kids, and this is not the first time this has happened. Plus I had gestational diabetes when I was pregnant with my second son. I suffer from migraines as well. When I have a migrain I see electrical looking lights almost like I'm blind, then I get numb or hyper sensitive nerves. It starts in my pinky and travels up my arm into my face then into my mouth then down my throat into my chest. And from time to time it will travel my body and then repeat. Something is not right, I have told doctors and they say I'm stroke prone and fine? Help me. Thanks for your time, Stephanie

  • Ask your dr to do a A1C blood test, to see what your blood sugars have been running in the last 3 months. This will help determine if you are hypoglycemic or not.

  • Sounds like anxiety. I've had the same problem. Sometimes it's hard to see and everything just seems out of perpective. Paxil is more of a anti-depressent then a tranquilizer. Ask your doctor for something on the order of Xanax, a minor tranquilizer.
