  • Sounds like a blood pressure issue - it's falling too quick when you stand up. I have a heart issue and I have that problem all the time - I sit for a while, get up, and about fall over. Blood work won't show it. I highly doubt it's diabetes. Ask to have your heart checked.

  • check to see if there is a blood disorder.. iron supplements will help you feel not so weak and a prenatal.. check your blood sugar in the mornings and at night on your own.. if it looks funky bring it to their attention ASAP but first try the iron.
