Weak, tiredness, dizzy. Is it because of studying hard?

Hi, I keep feeling weak at the same time every day. it always happens between 4 and 5 pm. i thought for the last few days that perhaps its tiredness or that i haven t eaten enough but today, it has come on while eating dinner. i feel hot, dizzy, weak and i couldn t finish my meal. i m 20 years old, 5 2 and 9st 3lb. i don t suffer from any conditions, but i have been stressed recently - i ve just moved to a new city and i don t have work, and i m studying very hard for my final exams. could it be this?

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

I understand that you are worried about your tiredness which occurs during a particular time in the evenings. Possible causes for this are dehydration, hypoglycemia, physical or mental strain or fatigue, stress, etc.

I would advise the following remedial measures:
- Drink plenty of fluids to keep yourself well hydrated.
- Eat properly in a timely manner. Take a nutritious diet with more of vegetables and fruits.
- Take regular breaks from studying continuously. During such short breaks, you can relax yourself by listening to music, going for a walk, playing an indoor game, etc.
- Ensure that you get adequate, uninterrupted sleep every night.
- Try practicing relaxation techniques like deep breathing, yoga, meditation, etc.

Thanks for the query.

Yes, sometimes stress and strain can lead to these type of symptoms.
Take sufficient rest, nutritious diet and avoid mental stress and that can help to some extent.
If the symptoms persist consult physician once and check for hemoglobin status, blood sugar levels and thyroid profile once.
By this the possible cause for your problem can be made out and treatment can be given.
As these are minor problems, don't worry and concentrate on your studies.
For more details you can ask me through:
Take care.
