Hypoglycemia or something else?

For the past 6 months I have been feeling weird. Everytime right after I eat something (it doesn't matter what) I start feeling weak, nauseous and tired, and I can't sleep well at night. This has been increasing to the point that I also am getting hungry all of the time even if I just already eaten... and I still am getting the symptoms mentioned above. I also get headaches and my period is irregular. I have been to the doctor's but all of the blood work done on me comes out normal (thyroid, glucose, cortisol, pituitary, cbc, etc.) I am just dumbfounded to what I have and it is really starting to obstruct my everyday life.

I have to mention that I have had these abnormal symptoms with food since I was a child (around 7 y/o) and I am 30 now. I also want to mention that I follow a healthy low-carb diet were the carb intake comes from complex carbs. I also excersice 3-4 times a week for 60 min each.

Any light about this subject, any other tests that my physician can check, will be greatly appreciated :)

  • This may be way off--but you might want to look into a food allergy. You may be allergic to several things, which results in fatigue after eating. Even though your symptoms don't all seem to match a food allergy, it may be significant. Or maybe there is a problem with malabsorption--but I would think that would show up in your glucose results?? Good luck!
