Hi,

I am a 21 year old female. I had major back surgery in 2007. I have two stainless steel rods in my back, 13 fusions and a lot of screws. I am not sure if my problem is related to my back or not. I have "weak" spells. I feel like I may faint if I do not eat and drink. This is not after a normal period of time. I eat breakfast, lunch and dinner and snack inbetween. I used to not feel like this. When I have a spell it helps if I have a bowel movement or eat. I can go shopping and have only been out for an hour or so and it will happen. I have had problems since I had surgery, but it has gotten worse the past four months. I worry constantly about it and feel like I have to have protein all the time. I also get tired easy and sometimes feel like I am in a daze. I have had my thyroid, my blood sugar, my iron and more checked. I have been tested for some allergyies and had an MRI. My doctor cant seem to figure out what is wrong with me and neither can I. Can anyone help me?

MJ
