Hi, I'm newly 30..so here's my story- i have terrible bouts of low blood sugar, even after i have had an appropriate sugar intake. i am also hypothyroid. blood pressure is normal high when taken at my doctors office, but when i stand up it drops. I feel very dizzy upon standing. also muscle weakness, and a few twitches here and there. Another thing, i have some brown spots on my legs, arms and hands..kinda like a tan spot, but a little bit scaly. my doctor ordered a test for arsenal problems..in the mean time, does this sound like acclaimed disease?
My doctor says that adrenal issues do cause hypoglycemia. I won't have the test until December second. I'm just scared i guess..what causes POTS? it is an acth test. blood is taken. then you're given some kind of medicine then levels are taken twice more.
My doctor is pretty certain i have addisons. he said that the results from my thyroid tests suggest it, plus the tan areas, standing and getting dizzy..all that stuff. i don't know what the heck is wrong with me.
