Do you get wooziness during the day?  I am prone to severe dropsies after breafast - I even get disoriented but have no idea why .  Hypoblycemia is one possible explanation.  i just found this quiz and I score about 40% - not excessivley high but certainly higher than average so its worth a consideration.

And this is interesting with respect to the role of caffeine (stimulates the adrenal glands)

According to the test, I'm over 20% so am at a higher risk.  However, my problem is that I'm sleepy from about 11pm through to about 3pm the next day.  Left to my own devices, I can only stay awake really for about 6 to 8 hours, maximum, in order to concentrate on anything. Anything more than that is really difficult.  I haven't been able to find out what's wrong with me but it's really tiring to keep up with everyone else who sleeps 6 to 8 hrs and are awake for the rest.

I don't have mood swings or dizzy spells, it could be just that I'm the laziest person on the planet.

Have you ever had your thyroid glands checked? they can create excessive tiredness, although if this is something that you have experienced all your life i wouldn't worry, i would say that it is just how your body works Wink

I'm not quite sure i would trust that website, i just tried the quiz and got 25%, seeings as i do have diabetes that seem a little (very Roll Eyes ) low for a disease that carries exactly the same symptoms...
When you say you get wooziness, what does it feel like? unable to concentrate? sometimes sweat with the wooziness? headaches? shaking hands? and i suppose the big question is, how long does this feeling last? is it until you've had some sugar? or a little later after that? or does it just stop on its own?

it can last for 15 minutes or more - I've even fallen asleep on the table.  And I've done the fasting test for diabetes (my blood sugar is always slightly elevated but not significant).

Do you need sugar to recover? if it is hypoglycemia or diabetes then once you get the wooziness and have some sugar after the sugar there should be a 10 - 20 minutes wait until you feel better...

I usually do eat some candies and I think that helps - and it does take about that long to work.

hmmm, if you think sugar helps it might not be a bad idea to go see a doctor and tell him the symptoms. Dizziness/wooziness is also a symptom of irregular blood pressure, though that does not last as long as you have said. Anyway, i think it might be time to consult a professional  Shocked

yes very god advice to seek help from a professional as some systems can cover many different problems so as a lay person it is very hard to tell what it can be.

Thanks Zac!  I think I really need to get some thing checked.  It's been getting steadily worse.  I used to bounce off the walls as a kid and well into my teens.  It was only a few years ago that things started to get out of hand.

how often do you eat candies, elise? i used to experience drowsies and fluctuating blood sugar a lot, but there are ways to eliminate it, and getting rid of candy would be the best first step. diet sodas as well, as they mimic sweetness and have been known to trigger insulin release as well.

I have the problem of always feeling tired and so forth too.  Have them check your B12 and Iron.
