Extreme fatigue, headaches, dizziness, nausea, hot flushes. Symptoms of hypoglycemia ?

Lately, I have been experiencing extreme fatigue , headaches , dizziness , nausea , and hot flashes when I go more than 3.5 hours without eating. I have never had this before. Sometimes I feel so weak, I feel like I m going to faint. When this happens, I try to eat something or drink something, but I m so nauseous (sometimes dry heaving or throwing up bile ) that I don t want to eat anything I just want to lay down. Usually, if I can stomach eating something I feel better in an hour or so, but the headache/ migraine lingers until the next morning. I m a 25 year old woman 5 5 190. I have lost 68 pounds in the last year, by changing my diet. My blood pressure was 100/62 and it has generally been in that range sometimes lower. The only thing I have changed recently is that I have been working out about every other day. I think this may be hypoglycemia but I don t feel the extreme hunger that is supposed to come with it. It s actually the opposite for me. I m turned off from food when I m going through these episodes which usually last anywhere from 2 to 6 hours or I sleep it off.

Hi welcome to HCMForum. It could be due to hypoglycemia as the reseve calaries are burnt away
by diet controle. other possibility is gastritis due to diet restrictions. I advise you to consult a
physician for diagnosis and treatment. Besides i advise some diet recomendations. as take more
ofgreen leafy vegetables pulses sprouts fruits and juices. Avoid taking excess of spices and
chillies. you may have to get the tests gastroscopy glucose tolarance test besides mther routine
tests for confirmation. wishing for a quick recovery.
