Re: Ever get dizzy while eating?
I believe it is blood sugar. I went through a horrible boutof that not too long ago when I was at my worst. It seems your sugar gets pretty messed up when you are under a lot of stress as your thyroid malfunctions more. With that, my sugar tends to be off and what's really going on is that your sugar is probably shooting up high and then dropping like a rock. Also, it does not take hours for sugar to react. By the end of a meal you will feel the effects of sugar. Sugar for me peaks about 25 minutes after eating my first bites - I test frequently. When I was under this stress, I was getting very dizzy at meals. I tried everything from quitting gluten to eating just veggies and everything in between....It all went away when my thryoid attack was over and my stress level came down a few notches....at this moment I can eat anything and feel good again....That dizziness definately fluctuates with stress, anxiety and hypo symptoms. Maybe try some xanax or something to help you repair your stress levels....once "fixed" from the stress and weakened adrenals, you'll probably feel much better. I do....until the next round of attacks at least.
