It was tricky trying to find where to post this, but here’s a quick overview:
I use to be ridiculously unhealthy for 19 years.
Then I lost an absurd amount of weight.
Now I’m exercising, heating healthy, blah blah blah.
Problem is, is starting last year (Right around this time, I reckon,) once in a while when I stand up I get extremely light-headed and sometimes feel like I’m going to pass out. If I usually wait about 10 seconds or so, it subsides and I can go back to whatever I was doing.
I always figured it was blood sugar levels. No biggie.
Anyway, it does still happen every once in a while, except on Wednesday, I had done a good leg workout. I went to class after for an hour, and was walking back to my car. On the way back, it felt like all my extremeties were air-like and extremely light. I started sweating profusely, and I almost felt surreal and that I was just sort of floating around.
I figured I’d chalk that one up to blood sugar also.
Well, my dad’s a Type-II diabetic, and last night for shits and giggles I decided to try my blood sugar content… it came at 84. I know it’s not terribly low, but it’s pushing the envelope.
Question is: Do you guys think that what happened to me (including when I stand up every so often) is blood-sugar related, or something else? I’m not looking for a full diagnosis here, and if someone thinks that these are irregular I’ll definitely see a doctor as soon as possible.
Anyway, I wouldn’t mind some feedback as to what the problem may be, and how I can correct it. Keep in mind I’m finishing out this long-ass diet, so my carbs are mostly in the morning and peri-workout early in the day.
