Question: I am working in a factory and my diet time is fixed. Generally the diet is mostly on time. Recently since two years I am experiencing empty stomach feeling just before my lunch and dinner. This was happening occasionally, since one month regularly. Even after eating food this is continues for some time. During this time I experience a kind of fatigue and tiredness and after some time this will become alright. I have minor cervical spondylitis , however I am not physically experiencing the effect of this as of now. I consulted doctors and taking medicine before food , but generally not completely relieved. Please suggest me, what is next.

Brief Answer:
Pre-prandial fatigue,tiredness -?hypoglycemic symptoms

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for your query. I can understand your concerns.
It seems you are having hypoglycemic symptoms (fatigue , tiredness) on empty stomach before lunch and dinner.Since the symptoms subside following meals,this points towards hypoglycemia. Do your blood sugar before lunch and two hours after lunch and similarly before dinner and two hours after dinner.This will clarify the issue and further investigation can be decided.
What medicine you are taking before food?
Amacard AT contains Amlodipine and Atenolol
Atenolol itself can cause hyperglycemia or hypoglycemia.

Doctor, I, 65 years male, am having cervical spondylitis and lower back pain for past 30 years and osteo arthriitis ofboth knees. I didnt take much medication though I have constant neck pain and knee pain. I used to experience giddiness at times. However, I was able to walk faster, and climb stairs. while coming down the steps I have difficulty. Of late, I hav started having problems keeping my balalnce while walking. I kind of sway and have the fear of falling. Some times I have no problem while walking. I have been asked by a neuro surgeon, to do MRI of sipne. Meanwhile, he has prescribed Doloneuron 100 and Tolperitas 150 tablets for 10 days. Klndly advise whether this will help in improving my gait. Thank you very much. Sincerely, Jairaj Kamthan

I have been suffering from acute lower back pain since a week, went to an ortho and was prescribed aceclofenac 200 mg, multivitamin alpha lipoic acid & selenium caps and calcium tabs. I was told its work related (i work on computers) and my lower spine was injured. I was suffering from cervical spondylitis 3-4 yrs ago but ve no neck pain now. the medi presc by the ortho has given no relief. Are my symptoms indicative of lumbar spondylitis or something else?
