Question weakness and shakeyness???

I am so sick and tired of feeling this way...ok so here is my story I am not positive how far back it goes its possible it goes clear back to after the birth of my daughter in DEC of 03..... I went to the dr. because I was shakey sometimes and they did blood work and it came back i had low normal blood sugar and my problem was probably due to low blood they said to eat small frequent meals a day so i started trying to eat right...I always thought I had low blood sugar for the longest time well it wasn't always that frequent I just dealt with it. well for the last few months it has seem to gotten much worse...I eat very healthy, I exercise, I drink mostly water I have cut out all caffeine, I tried every thing possible so I wouldn't feel this way I have recorded my triggers so when I go to the Dr. again maybe they will have a better idea how to help me.
My symptoms are....
trembling hands, weakness in legs and arms and hands, irritable, feeling the need to just sit down, unbalanced, it usually lasts about a half and hour but sometimes can last up to an hour.. then I am fine until the next time it happens, I dont need to eat to make me feel better, time is the only thing that helps me.

the triggers seem to be the following....
exercise, getting up after sitting for a while to clean or whatever, taking a hot bath, caffeine, getting upset, and somtimes nothing...and can be just sitting down and it occurs

I have looked into this for a while.. I am afraid of going to the Dr. cause they will probably say its just anxiety disorder and pass me off some antidepressant meds.. but I am not sad or deppressed I am very happy, I am just not happy with feeling like this it happens from 1 - 3 times a day, and I am so sick of feeling sick, I checked my blood sugar many times during these episodes and I did not have low sugar at all, I am going to go to the Dr. but if its somthing that they are going to brush off I dont even want to bother!

April: It still could be low blood sugar or even low or high blood pressure. Do you check that periodcically? It really could be something simple so I wouldn't immediately think the doctor is going to brush you off. And even if it's within normal range but on the low end, blood sugar can do that.

Re: weakness and shakeyness???

I checked my sugar just like a diabetic should for 3 days it was always normal and when I was feeling weak and shakey I would check it also and it was in the 80's and 90's, and I did check my bloodpressure once when I wasn't feeling well and it was a bit low.
Thanks for your response!
