For the last couple of months now I have been getting very weak and dizzy if I go more than ten hours without eating food. I was with my grandmother driving to go to a restaurant that was about an hour away. I hadn't eaten anything all day and was pretty hungary. Half way there I became extremely dizzy and very weak, I thought I was going to die! We had to stop at the nearest store so I could get something to eat. Once I ate, I felt better but was very tired. I went to the doctor and got blood work done and they found nothing. In fact they say that I have panic dissorder. I do know that I am suffering from panic attacks because I have had a few in the last few months after eating. But I am concerned why I get weak and dizzy if I dont eat something. I was looking in to a condition called UC, ulceratic colitus, and have heard some people say they have these symptoms. Does this sound like that?
That's what I thought too, but my mom is diabetic and has a blood sugar monitor and every time I feel weak and dizzy from not eating I check my blood sugar only to find that it is normal at around 118 to 129. I am concerned that this could be an ulcer because I remember these symptoms occuring after I took double the dose of aspirin one time.
It sounds like a glucose (blood sugar) problem either high or low can cause these symptoms. It could be a recent occurring problem because it is normal to go on a fast for 12 to 14 hours for many blood tests and other tests or surgeries.
You probably need to be checked out by a Doctor to find out what is going on??
