Hello; i wondered if you can help me?
I have been what I can only describe as 'funny turns' For just over a year. I seem to remember some years ago I had a spell of feeling 'odd' in my head and had dizziness. it was never really sesolved and it just seem to 'go'
Since march last year; I have had odd feelings inside. I work a shift pattern and these symptoms only ever seem to be in the mornings; for example. I would get up at 6am; shower, eat breakfast and be at work by 7am listen to a handover then I would start by work 7.30am. By 08.30am I start to feel shaky inside, like 'trembling' I then feel very unsteady on my feet and feel 'muddled' like I can't think straight. They took my blood sugar which did indicate that I was having low blood sugar levels and put this down to having 'hypo glycaemia'. They also did a thyroid function which also indicated that I was hypothyroid.
They have increased my thyroid medication which helped. But my blood sugar levels remain low. Yesterday; I had another bad turn ; I was shaking, unable to walk and needed a wheelchair, my head ached and I could not think straight. I was trembling 'inside' and my hands and legs had a bad shake. This is the first time I have had to go home as it would not stop. Today after a good night sleep; I still can't walk straight and I feel 'uncoordinated' and still feel tremble inside, if this was due to low blood sugar i should not still be feeling unwell
Once the symptoms stop; I'm exhausted and have to sleep 'it off' some days I have a sense that I 'know its going to happen' I have a feeling that 'something isn’t right', but what I don’t understand is why this seems to only happen in the morning and not later on in the day?
My doctor is at a loss as to what to do with me; he is sending me for endocrinology test. My friend has MS and he says that the symptoms I'm getting are very similar to how he was in the early stages of MS! However; he did not get the low blood sugar?
Do you think these symptoms are similar?
I have shaky feeling inside and my hands tremble
Unsteadiness on my legs
i'm feeling worried now; i cant work; i work in a hospital and they feel that my symptoms are so unsteady i cant work with patients. I'm now on sick leave until they find out what's wrong, this is taking so long ; can anyone help me?
