I frequently have the symptom of shakiness in the afternoon usually an hour or so after lunch (so it's not like i'm hungry). It usually occurs if I'm doing something eg weeding in the garden or going for a short walk or even just cleaning. i'll feel really weak and shaky and need to sit or lie down or even sleep for a while. I often feel better if I eat something or have a drink which makes me think it's low blood suga but I've been tested for diabetes and I don't have that so drs just say it can't be low blood sugar. I am frequently very tired so i've also been tested for thyroid problems, iron, vitamin deficiencies, basically everything! Everything comes back normal. Drs have told me to just put up with it but it makes it very hard for me to do day to day tasks such as housework or go out anywhere.
It seems to happen more often at the weekends and I don't know if this is because i'm eating a bigger lunch then (at work I always just have sandwiches whereas I might have a jacket potato or beans on toast or something at weekends) or maybe it's just cos i'm more likely to be moving around at weekends than if i'm sat at my desk.
Does anyone else experience this? Google always comes up with hypoglycemia and a lot of sites suggest diet changes, has anyone changed their diet and seen improvement?
