I have been having this problem for years. Everytime I go to the doctor I get a clean bill of health, so I guess it is just my weirdo body acting weird.
Anyway if I don't eat within a certain time after I get hungry I start to shake. Its not like I start shaking right away though. I have plenty of time to order a sandwich (if I am out) or finish a television show, etc. I do not eat right away when I feel hungry, but once I start to feel myself shake I know I should eat something right away. Any ideas of why this is happeneing?
I pretty much have this whole thing controlled. I make to eat something at different intervals during the day. That has really seemed to help and keeps me from getting so hungry that shake.
The only problem is when I am at work. My boss does not give breaks; you work through your meals. So if you get your lunch out and then it starts to get busy, you can forget about eating. Luckily I usually work with a friend who understands that once the shaking starts I have to eat, but sometimes it takes two of us to get the job done.
Like I said, as long as I keep eating at those intervals or do not wait to long when I feel hungry I am good to go. I only have a problem when I forced to work when I need to be eating.
I have this same problem, along with severe lightheadedness. The doctor just looks at my blood glucose and says it is fine, but I know something's out of whack. If my lunch break is delayed by even half an hour, I'm in a bad way.
have you have your blood sugars checked? Have you been checked for diabetes? The shaking like that is a sign that your blood sugar has gotten low, because when you eat, you have balanced it again and you feel normal... just a thought,.
hi kd86, just thought i would let you know i had the very same symptoms for quite a few years , my fasting blood tests were always normal,then i started to have really bad shakes then i went back to my gp,i went to see a diabetic specialist who did a fasting glucose test ,not very nice blood taken every half hour for 4hrs,it was then i was diagnosed with reactive hypoglycemia i had to change my whole diet, no sugary things cakes biscuits sweets chocolate ect it has been very hard and if i stick to my diet im fine ,maybe an idea to ask your gp if this is what it might be, best of luck, jules.
I think normal healthy peoples blood sugar will nose dive if you dont eat at regular intervals. I have no glucose probs at al and i will get the shakes if go too long without food. But i can also get the symptomes if i have a sugar rush, like a hot chocolate or un caffeinated coke. So bit confusing really.
everybodies different. Some people can pig out and not gain a pound. Some people can drink energy drinks everyday and not get the shakes... me personally caffiene makes my chest uncumfortable.. SO maybe you should get shecked becuase you should be able to go without eating and not feel sick.. just hungry but not sick.. fasting is good for you.
I shake too if I don't eat regularly, and like you not all the time. I've had my blood sugars checked, no diabetes, so I thought maybe hypoglycemia. I keep forgetting to talk to my Dr. anyway after I eat it goes away and I feel better. I don't have any other symptoms, like sweating, but I'm going to try remember to talk to my Dr. just to make sure there isn't anything else going on. That is always the best bet, talk to our Dr's.
