Shakes after eating

Hi

For a while now (approximately two months) I have been feeling generally unwell. A little bit after I eat I begin to get the shakes (particularly in my hands) and feel dizzy. After some time the shakes go away, but come back again after I eat something. The more I eat the worse the shakes get. My vision has also worsened and I often have diarrhoea straight after eating (but it is not normal diarrhoea as my body just cant seem to process what I eat). I often get abdominal pain on the upper left side.

I went to the doctors who did a blood test which came back saying that I had high levels of adrenaline. The doctor didnt seem to really care and told me just to have another blood test in three months to see if the results are still the same. I am about to go on an overseas holiday and dont want this hanging over my head.

If anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated!

Cheers

  • It depends on how long after you've eaten it happens and what it is you've eaten. It could be sugar related though. I wouldn't plan on a quick fix.

  • Hi,I wanted to post about this because I have had very similar problems over the past 6 months. It could be a gallbladder issue, however the adrenaline levels are a concern. I was recently diagnosed with an endocrine tumor called a pheochromocytoma. An endocrine tumor usually located on the adrenal gland that release adrenaline aka ephinefrine and norephinefrine. The blood test and urine test can be affected by several drugs and foods including caffeine and vanilla but I would get a second opinion possibly from a endocrinologist(sp). Also, high blood pressure that occurs in episodes can also be a sign. I would have the tests to rule out the gallbladder because other than the bp the symptoms are similar. Best of luck to you!Christy

  • Do you have bread with your meals? If so you may want to have a test for celiac disease? Good luck!:) I get like that too! It is soooo weird. My stomach doesn't hurt, but I get dizzy and feel like I can't see very well. I have always thought it to be weird. I do it especially if it is a bufffet. I feel much better if I eat very lightly a few meals a day. ls

  • For Diarrhoea you can use Home Remedies For Diarrhoea....*A simple and effective remedy for treating diarrhea would be to take banana along with curd.*Take ½ tsp lemon juice, ½ tsp ginger juice and 1/4 tsp pepper powder. Intake this mixture twice a day.*Boil to 2 cups of water and allow it to get warm. Mix 3 tsp of black pepper and 1 ½ tsp of kelp to it. Drink this mixture to cure diarrhea.*Ginger is also effective in treating diarrhea. Intake ginger tea to stop the cramps and pain.*Drinking lots of fluids would be beneficial in curing diarrhea. . Drinks like ginger ale or carrot juice is good for making the stools less watery. Avoid taking caffeine and alcohol.*Cook brown rice in water for about 45 minutes. Once cooked, strain the mixture. Have the rice and drink the water in which the rice has been cooked.

  • i was told it could be potassium poisoning. i also recently had kidney stones. and i have a bad liver.One important function of your kidneys is to maintain a healthy balance of potassium in your blood. Your kidneys filter out any excess amount of the electrolyte, and that excess leaves your body through your urine. Therefore, any condition resulting in kidney damage, impairment or failure increases your risk for an elevated potassium level. Obstructive uropathy -- a condition in which the flow of your urine becomes blocked, allowing urine to back up into your kidneys--can also lead to hyperkalemia. Another disorder of the kidneys associated with hyperkalemia, glomerulonephritis, is a disease in which damage occurs to the important structures of your kidneys responsible for filtering fluids and waste from your blood. If you have a transplanted kidney and your body rejects that kidney, serum potassium toxicity results.Read more: http://www.livestrong.com/article/512766-potassium-poisoning/#ixzz2SkE91aBX
