Hi guys. I lost about 80 lbs over the course of a year and a half.

I started at 250 and 30% bodyfat and I'm currently 168.0 and 14-15% bodyfat.

I have alot of loose skin, but thats not the point. My waist is almost 33. I used to be almost a size 50 jeans. I'm 5'7'' and male.
I've been lifting weights 5 days a week since I was an overfat person. (chest, back, legs, shoulders). I definitely have gained some muscle.

Anyway, yesterday I had to call emergency services . My hands were very cold, I was trembling badly and shaking, and felt dizzy and had trouble thinking of where to put things. I couldn't seem to get enough air. My pulse was 136 at rest (no excerise that day, from getting up out of the bed). Often times i Would wake up soaked in sweat. Often with cramps right when I woke up.

I had 2 blood tests done, as I also have high blood pressure. Everything looked OK. She said my cholesteroal is through the roof (on the good side) and my heart sounds 'excellent'. I'm 22.

My mom has hypoglycemia and her father also has it. My dads side of history has a problem with heart disease.

Emergency services came, said I WAS getting plenty of air. They said my blood sugar was 20. They then gave me a tube of sugar and it went back up to 90. They said that was normal because they 'poked me twice where there was blood.'. I began to feel better after the sugar. I was concerned, because I've felt like this like completely utterly no energy and constantly tired. Hands are currently still very cold and clammy.

They said I didn't need to go to the hospital. and everything was fine. But I'm not taking no for an answer. I see the doctor on monday. I am worried. What could have happened? I also have high blood pressure and take meds. My BP stats is still high even with medication.

The last year I've been very isolated. Little to very few friends, no girlfriend ever in my life. Locked myself in the room and only go out to the gym, eat, and sleep. I am afraid of rejection as well. I was wondering if this isolation could have caused some of the health problems? I want to socialize! But I'm afraid to.

Thanks

Im just wondering if you might need vitamins, especially the B's. I have B12 deficiency and this causes havoc from head to toe if it gets out of control. Have your doc check your vitamins. B12, folate and D. Just a suggestion.

  • The symptom checker of clammy hands and high blood pressure leads to http://www.wrongdiagnosis.com/a/adrenal_medulla_neoplasm/intro.htmMaybe have your adrenal gland levels checked. Otherwise it could be anxiety or panic attacks.
