I am actually seeing my primary care doctor tomorrow for a follow up appointment. I have been checking blood sugar off and on for several months without any significant findings that seem associated with my symptoms. For at least 20 years, I from time to time, have a feeling of weakness and an overall trembly feeling after eating. I have always thought it was some kind of food allergy, however, I have not ever been able to pin point what it is. Second, I have suspected a blood sugar spike, but that does not seem to be the case either. I am thinking it could be an asthma problem that has been missed for years. I am a female, 66 years old and this problem is becoming more frequent and more debilitating. I have never smoked or been with people who do. Any suggestions? I am thinking of asking for a referral to either an endocrinologist or an allergist.
