Back in 2004/2005 I would have "episodes" where I would start shaking really really badly, feel weak, almost faint-like, and even start sweating a little. It would ALWAYS happen at work (I was 18/19 years old, and worked at Qdoba preparing food). It would eventually sit down and eat lunch and feel quite a bit better shortly after. I went to the doctors and had blood tests done for multiple things...the ones I remember were Hypoglycemia and Anemia. All my tests came back normal.
It abruptly stopped and I didn't have anymore episodes....until Monday evening. I was making dinner and it just hit me, worse than I can ever remember. I felt faint and was shaking so badly that I could barely take the casserole dish out of the oven. Even after eating, it took quite a while to feel better. And then just about an hour ago it was same thing. And this time I felt VERY faint. I am alone with my two little boys so I quickly grabbed a bowl of ice cream hoping it would help quickly.
I always turn to food when this happens thinking by blood sugar is just low or something, but Monday night and today it just doesn't seem to work. I am still a little shaky and still not "feeling" great.
If this keeps up I will definitely be going to the doctor for more blood tests, but I am really not sure what more they could test for. Has anyone else experienced this? Did you find out what it was?
