Hi everyone. I have this very specific situation and was wondering if anyone could shed some light on this. Im 29, 140lbs, 5 11". blood pressure is perfect, no medical problems.
Whenever I skip meals and go hungry, I get the usual issues like everyone else. Empty stomach pain, etc. But I never get any other issues like so called hypoglycemia. But heres the twist that I think ive narrowed this down to:
If I receive any pain or discomfort or I THINK its going to be uncomfortable (such as impending dr shots, or giving blood) While ON an empty stomach, I get extremely nautious, I start to sweat like crazy and I feel like im about to pass out. the only cure seems to be stuffing my face with carbs asap.
Today I experienced this at the EYE doctor of all places. He put dye on my eye lids, and it didnt feel good, then I started to get weak as I knew what was coming. I tried to go for some water, but I couldnt even walk straight. was so nautious, had to rest my head down on a table. I was so sweaty it was ridiculous. they brought me some chcolates, and as soon as I started eating them, the feeling quickly dissipated. I thought it was low blood sugar, aka hypoglycemia, and thats what the lady said, low blood sugar.
So I did some quick research and found out some info regarding hypoglycemia... but is it possible to be only triggered with pain&discomfort? just seems so strange to me.View Thread
