It all started when i was little girl. I spent most of my childhood feeling like i was looking at the world through a fish bowl. I was irritable and moody like a teenager and spent far more time than i should have bawling my eyes out. As i got older i started to develop hungry stomach pains if i was even minutes late for a meal. It got worse and worse and by the time i was 11 i actually had to sleep with a packet of biscuits by my bed and would wake up sick and need to eat one at least three times in the night. More often than not i couldn't even get out of bed in the morning without eating one first or i would pass out.
I was not taken for tests as it was classified as probably just growing pains
I am now 22 and in otherwise good health but i still pass out now and then, wake up in the early hours of the morning and hang over the toilet bowl for a while (no i'm not pregnant). If get even slightly hungry i become unreasonable uptight and irritable, vague (fish bowl effect again), cyring, depression, and if unattended it will progress on to shakes, blurred vision, sweating and nausea.
I also have troubles with resperatry infections such as sinus, chest, throat, ear etc.

  • Some things I suggest:1.Get a glucose tolerance test to check your blood sugar levels. You may have hypoglycemia, which can cause some of your symptoms. 2. You may have a vitamin/mineral deficiency. Get some blood work done that can tell you your potassium levels, and B vitamins. At the very least you should be taking a good quality vitamin/mineral supplement. EmergenC is very good and easy to find, but you need to also take a B complex (sublingually if you can find it) 3. Check into candida overload. Please visit www.candidasupport.org and www.wholeapproach.com for more info on this. It is a common, misdiagnosed problem and Western treatment for it sucks. Hope this helps you.Doctor of Oriental Medicine
