Shaky - Blood sugar anxiety
« on: June 28, 2014, 07:03:28 PM »
I'm back on Prozac again, and the anxiety is better, but I just need a little help right now.
I have been occasionally getting shaky halfway through the day until I eat. I don't get shaky in the morning or anything, and I am not lightheaded, I'm not excessively thirsty or anything and I don't have (I don't think) any other symptoms of diabetes, (I haven't googled them). Is this normal??
I've been having rolling panic attacks about this...

I should mention, I'm on my second cup of coffee, but that is customary for me, and the shaking did get a little better after I ate. Could this just be like.... a caffeine thing?
Or could this be another manifestation of a panic attack?? I think it triggered the attack, not the other way around though. Gah.
I hate living with anxiety so much :(

I'm hypoglycemic and that sounds like what I feel when my blood sugar is getting low.  Try to eat every 3 hours and make sure you have protein.  Avoid pop, candy bars, anything with a high amount of sugar as that can spike your blood sugar and then drop it really quick.

But does that mean diabetes??
It happened mid day, 4 hrs or so after eating some stir fried vegetables.
It doesn't always happen. I have atypical anorexia (not underweight but occasional starvation jags), and I can go several days without food usually and feel pretty okay.. (Obviously nothing I'm proud of, just perhaps a relevant detail.) Complications of anxiety :/
Does that sound like diabetes?
