So.. all my life I have had episodes of low blood sugar, well, that's what we think but I've been tested twice after fasting for breakfast and both were negative (this was years ago). Lately i've been having more trouble, it happens 1-3 times a day and it comes with:
- Sudden, extreme hunger
- Nausea and stomach pain (alternating with the hunger)
- Extreme fatigue and weakness (sometimes I cannot hold my head up)
- Mild to severe shakiness
- Heart palpitations
On the worse episodes, I will experience all these symptoms at once and in full intensity. Other, more milder episodes are just the hunger, shakiness, and fatigue. The problem is that I have Gastroparesis so my stomach empties so slow that fasting and then blood tests is not effective in diagnosing hypoglycemia in me. My family and I are convinced that I suffer from non-diabetic hypoglycemia but we just need a different way of diagnosis, any suggestions? Will probably email my PCP over the weekend but not sure what to say...
