17 year old having shaking of the hands upon taking food late, dizziness and fatigue. What is wrong?

I am 17 and when I don t eat for a few hours my hands start to shake. Also, I have been getting every dizzy periodically throughout the day. It is almost as if I get taken out of my head and put back in. I have also been very tired lately and unable to wake up in the morning/stay awake in class. Is there something wrong with me?

hi there, you could be just suffering from hypoglycemia due to not eating on time or it could be something more. Get a complete physical exam and blood workup done to rule out any other cause of these symptoms. Take a couple of days off , get proper rest with at least 8 hrs of sleep at a stretch at night and take proper meals at regular intervals. You should feel better if you are suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome coupled with hypoglycemia. Also your health check will be able to point out if any thing is organically wrong with you. Take care.

Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.

There could be a few possibilities for your symptoms:
- Nutritional deficiencies such as anaemia
- Type 1 diabetes
- Thyroid disorders
- Anxiety-related or depressive symptoms

I would advise you to see a doctor for a thorough physical examination and if necessary, some lab investigations, in order to ascertain the cause of your symptoms. I would also advise you to have timely meals, eat a nutritious and balanced diet, and practice regular physical exercise everyday.

Best wishes,
Dr. Sheeba Stephen
