Dr. Cranquis! I just discovered your blog today and needless to say I find it very interesting.
Well, to the point. Thing is, I am a very thin 19 year old (my BMI is 17) and my weight had never given me any problems (except in the wardrobe department) but lately I have been suffering from moderate fatigue and low blood pressure.
Now, I sleep more than the regular person, that's always been me, but I have been gradually messing my sleep schedule and feeling tired at random hours of the day. Then, no matter how much I eat I am always hungry and if I don't eat more my blood pressure drops and I want to faint. As soon as I get something like a soda or candy the feeling goes away but I would want to know if this is normal or a sign of something else.
Or maybe I'm just a lazy glutton?
Another thing: lately I have been feeling very, very thirsty. I'm drinking 1 liter or more of water everyday and even that is not enough.
What is going on?
Hello there! Welcome to my blog, glad you’re enjoying it.
Well, I hope you saw my comment about this question in my Weekly Summary — because I really think you need to be tested for blood sugar problems, such as diabetes! You have many of the “classic” symptoms: meal-related dizziness/fatigue/blood-pressure changes, constant hunger, increased thirst, fatigue, and possibly even your skinny body size! See a doctor soon.
