Are hand tremors and dizziness symptoms of hypoglycemia?

Hello; I think I am hypoglycemic. I often get shaky hands, feel light headed and usually if I eat or drink something it will go away. I am never sure what brings it on. It often happens shortly after I urinate. My email address is YYYY@YYYY Thank you

Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Your symptoms are typical of hypoglycemia and more sure sign is that these disappear after you eat something. I will recommend that you should undergo blood sugar test at the time of such symptoms. Usually sugar goes low when person takes drug as routine but meal is delayed or person more than routine physical exertion. In some cases , dosage of drug for diabetes are to be reduced.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hello, looking for possible reasons my husbands hands are shaking. Thought it was hypoglycemia because it used to happen when he hadn t eaten for a few hours but now it happens all the time or even just after he has eaten. Worried that it might be parkinson or something. What other reasons could cause this. He is on BP meds and heart meds due to triple bypass 10 years ago and doc says his heart is ok.

I have these rare short attacks where I become very lightheaded, shaky in hands, flush in face, faint feeling, hot flash feeling and I see a spot in both eyes as if I looked at the sun. I have to lay down when having these attacks. The attacks last about 4 minutes and slowly fade away as the spots disappear. The symptoms are always the same.
