User :   I have been experiencing alot of nausea lately. I am thinking about going to the doctor to see whats really wrong. I was thinking i was pregnant but I cant be certain. I took a cheap home pregancy test but it was negative. I was thinking it may have been too early to detect so I am waiting on next week to see if I miss my period. With this nausea, it comes and goes during the day. It is worse when i wake up or if I am up late and cant sleep which is appromiately around one or two in the morning. If I am not pregnant, I just want to know what else would make me feel this way?

first thing is we should rule out pregnancy ..u take pregnancy test once again after missing periods.
Doctor :   then coming to ur symptoms do u have light-headedness, feeling like you might faint, being unsteady, loss of balance,?

Doctor :  
Light-headedness happens when there is not enough blood getting to the brain.

User :   ok

check ur blood pressure/blood sugar

User :   with hypoglycemia, will you have an increase in tireness?

u will feel very tired as the energy required to do day today activities will be less

due to less glucose content which is a major source of energy in our body
