Ears And Low Blood Sugar

I am having some unusual problems - anyone else.
I hope someone out there can help me- or maybe has had similar experience. I do have allergies- do take shots- but every summer I get the same phenomena plus a few times in other months after I have flown. Get either positional vertigo, or sometimes a feeling like I am going to be faint, or dizzy-it is worse when it is warm I must say. I have had all the tests- and it didn't show any vestibular problem- however- when theEply was tried when I had a bad time of it 2 yrs ago- it did help- my Dr. did give me the exercises from the VRT clinic to use and I use them faithfully. I really freaked out when 2 nights ago I had that same feeling when I went out on a terrace. Now, I used to live in a high rise up to a few years ago and never got that. So- now some Dr.'s have thought it might be a low blood sugar thing- and so I have been trying to eat every 3-4 hrs. But to me it seems big time strange that this is the worst only in the summers- and within a 2- 3weeks after returning from a 2 segment flight( up and down 2 times in a day)- it is such a scary feeling- I feel like I can't count on when I am going to feel good or not- after I eat though it usually gets better( the spacy feeling- sometimes w/ pressure on the head and behind the ears. I have been to 7 dr.s and no one seems to have much help. Can anyone relate to this- and what have you done for it. Really would appreciate feedback . Thanks

Re: Ears And Low Blood Sugar

It's probably a good idea to watch your blood surgar levels. Low blood surgar can defintely cause a feeling of being faint. I was diagnosed with BPPV, and before that I knew that I was hypoglycemic, and so when I got the bad dizzies back in October I though it might be related. But now I can say that in my case it does not seem to be the cause, I wish it was that easy! Although when my blood surgar does start to get low it seems to aggitate my situation.

Re: Ears And Low Blood Sugar

Does anyone have any ideas about what kind of protein to carry w/ you to keep the low blood sugar in control- I don't do well w/ nuts at all- although they are easy to carry. But protein wise- what is there? the bars(energy) have fillers- or wheat etc or dairy which I can't have.
Ideas please

Re: Ears And Low Blood Sugar

I've had glycemia problems about ten years ago. If I were in your shoes, (sandals, boots?) I would load up on bananas, fruits and eat veggies (sweet potatoes A+) at least two veg's at every meal. Fruit snacks inbetween. Nothing prepared from cans or boxes. Restaurant only once a week. 'Be an Ape!' Eat "natural" to get body balance back. I have no problems when I eat in that direction. I also don't eat alot of red meat.
Good luck. CC.

Re: Ears And Low Blood Sugar

Fresh Fruit and Veg are the best, but if you need something to carry around with you try small bags of dried fruit, I carry these around in my handbag, laptop case etc, for those woosy monents and they always do the trick without loading myself with candies and sweets.
Hope this helps.
