Shaking, headache, stomach discomfort. Symptoms happen when on an empty stomach

over the past week I have had 3 separate incidences where I start to shake, then have a terrible headache and feel very sick. This will go on for about an hour and then I ll fall asleep. Once I wake I feel alot better however still funny in the stomache. I start to feel strange if I dont eat often. Once I start to have an empty stomache (not hungry at all) the symptoms start all over again.

Welcome to HCM!

I have gone through your question and form my clinical experience I can say that your presentation can be due to varied reasons ranging from simple falling in blood sugar levels ( as it happens when you don not eat) to some digestion problem to a case of seizure disorder. One needs to evaluate you throughly before prescribing you anything.

had I been treating you, I would get your sugar leves, both fasting and PP, thyroid , liver, kidney, lipid profile, an ultrasound abdomen. if everything is ok, then getting an EEG will help to find if there is a. case of seizure disorder ( as you have a shaky feeling, then strong headache, and later you feel sick and then go to sleep) , this is a strange presentation for any gastro-abdominal cause.

Theer is no need to panic, but please. see a doctor and get your self checked at least once.

please avoid staying hungry for long hours, by this you may help in preventing another attack.

Hope you get better
Dr. Manisha Gopal.
