I have all of the symptoms of Hypoglycemia, and I've never read up on it before until now, and I was amazed. Apparently they fit into every aspect of my life. However nobody in my family has diabetes, and I'm pretty sure I don't. But, my grandmother and my sister both have hypothyroidism. I don't know if I could have this, because it doesn't seem right. I'm a normal weight 5'5" 122, and don't seem to have the same issues as them. But I'm almost positive that I have Hypoglycemia, I just don't know why I would have it. Is there something out there more likely for a 20 year old female to have that contains all the symptoms of Hypoglycemia including severe fasting intolerance?
I mean I literally have all the symptoms, I feel better with a candy bar, but it's so short lived because it's only a few hours before I'm hungry and weak again. I also have really bad teeth, so it's painful to eat sugary foods or foods like crackers, any suggestions, do sugar pills work for this kind of thing? Or are they like vitamins, you don't absorb nearly as much then if you just ate it. I hope it's just something they can fix. I've felt like this a long time, and I've had to drop school because of it. I'm just worried about falling asleep driving sometimes, or passing out standing up to fast, or having a seizure one day.
I've seen a neurologist, and a gastroenterologist(? don't know if I have the right title), as well as a rheumatologist and cardiologist. I get dizzy, nauseous, lightheaded. I've been given an EEG and found to have "seizure disorder-like" waves. I feel sick often, and tired. I also fall asleep easily, or can't fall asleep at all. I get terrible migraines. I was told I have postural orthostatic hypotension at the hospital when I collapsed. I was trying to go up a staircase. I'm 20 years old. I was there for a week, they found nothing underlying but they thought from the severity that it must've been something. I don't think I mentioned my inability to go without food while I was in the hospital because I just read about this hypoglycemia now, and they fed me three meals a day and all the snacks I wanted so I didn't really think of it. I felt a bit better, and they sent me on my way with a halter monitor. They still weren't sure what happened. But, I think that because I don't have a primary doctor, when I've tried to go to the county clinic they give me a specialist for each individual thing rather than looking at all my problems together. I'm just tired, and I never feel well. I'm ready to be a healthy normal 20 year old. I want to run, and jump, and I don't want to have nightmares, or heart palpitations, or be dizzy and irritable, or feel like I'm going to pass out if I don't eat every few hours. At this point, I'm open to suggestions to anybody willing to give them.
If somebody can guide me in the right direction, I'll gladly save some money and try to go with that route, because this spending money recklessly and building debt sure isn't making me feel any better.
