I am a 40 yo male who is overweight. I am 6'1" and weigh 275. I have been having a problem with dizziness for quite some time. In the past I thought my symptoms were related to my allergy shots, but with vacation I have not had one in 2 weeks. While on vacation I went to the ER 2x for light headed, chest pain, headache, and feeling tired. EKG was normal both times and I was told that I had Esophagitis by both ER doctors, but I have no upset stomach or heart burn. I just slept in bed all day. One week later I feel even worse. Everyday I feel light headed. Tonight I went to bed early because I felt weird. My jaw is numb on my left side, my neck hurts bad like a burning sensation, all my muscles in my shoulders, chest, upper back are sore like I was lifting weights. Sometimes when I feel dizzy I will eat and feel slightly better, but tonight I ate and it did not help. Yesterday I felt this coming on and checked my blood sugar with mother in laws diabetic supplies and my sugar was 90. Any thoughts?
