Normal? Nausea, Dizziness After Eating?

Posted , 7 users are following.

Hi, I'm 47 (you prob all know me lol) and in peri and for the past few days after I've eaten I've felt nauseous and dizzy and it only seems to get worse with time. Like I ate at about 11 today and by now I'm super dizzy, weak and nauseous and a bit hot tho no fever. Same thing yesterday and I tried eating crackers and just made it worse and my stomach got more upset. I know my progesterone is UBER low per blood tests and have started shedding a lot of hair the last few months. Wondering if this could just be another peri/menopause symptom? I am close to when I would get my period. Also if this is a peri/menopause symptom do you ladies know if it that generally means I'm like months away from real menopause? OR ... have any of you had these sorts of symptoms for years before full menopause? My OBGYN who I don't really trust did some blood tests 6 months ago and said I prob wouldn't go through final menopause until after 53. But then if I'm having all these symptoms now it's seem like it's much closer. I still haven't skipped a period yet ... I feel horrible, weak and shaky. I thought at first it might be a vitamin I was taking but I took the vitamin for two weeks and was fine until now and it doesn't make sense that if I took a vitamin at 11am I'd feel sicker at 6pm. This feels more hormonal 😦 I'm looking into fibroid surgery so I can potentially take HRT or hormones in the future since right now I'm afraid to take anything that would make the fibroid grow. But then honestly it seems like CA docs have no clue how to balance a woman's hormones anyway. And female docs actually seem more callous and uncaring. I guess none of them had menopause issues??? 😦 Am I normal? At least for the unlucky ladies that don't breeze through menopause like my mom or friends or the lousy OBGYNs I've seen? Thanks!

    hello....i have been going through what you are for years unfortunately. And sadly you cant really go by blood tests. 4 years ago i skipped 3 periods in a row, my progesterone was super low but then my periods came back every month and i just kept getting sicker and sicker with them. This past year ive only had 2 periods the whole year and my blood tests show my fsh is elevated with low progesterone and estrogen, but im still having periods! Im dizzy and sick nearly all the time now. It doesnt matter what i eat i feel awful before, during and after periods. Im dizzy and faint feeling almost every day, Im nauseous for sure every day i can always count on that. I started feeling bad 8 years ago! It only started getting very bad about 4 years ago, im 41 years old and im sure there is no end to this hell any time soon. I was like you hoping it meant i was getting closer to the end of periods but no such luck, ive been waiting 4 years already!

    i started like this 8 yrs ago, i was out eating a meal then felt dizzy and nauseas i thought i was going to faint.

    its eased at times and not as intense as it used to be but always with me. im now scared of eating out.

    i know how upsetting it is for you and hope it passes for you soon x

    This has been happening to me for years. Doctors were baffled. Then I learned about reactive hypoglycemia. For some reason blood sugar drops when you eat. There's no treatment, I just have to eat small amounts regularly

      Hmm thanks Tracy. So maybe I ate too large a lunch? Or waited too long to eat again? I usually try to intermittent fast to lose peri weight so was eating around 12 and then 6. Thanks!
