Lightheaded Spells Lately

Hello.  I'm very frustrated at my spells of lightheadedness for the past few weeks.  It happens daily, and usually at specific time.  I live a very routine life.  I do not think it's a cardiac issue.  From everything I have researched it appears it may be a blood sugar type thing.  The problem is I bought a blood sugar machine and my values are always normal...very normal.  I'm in shape and I exercise regularly.  

I'm a 38 year old male.  When the lightheadedness strikes I often feel hot too.  

So here's the question.  Can I still have hypo like symptoms even if my blood sugar is a normal reading??  I read someone on this website say that hormonal changes can screw with your insulin levels, etc.  I am 38 and under a lot of stress and sleeping poorly---perhaps my hormones are out of whack.  But I'm pretty sure my testosterone levels are ok---I still have a strong sex drive (thank God lol).

So I wondered if it could be a blood sugar thing even if my levels are normal.  And if the answer is yes, what should I or could I do about it?  Drink fruit juice when it happens?  In other words should I treat it as if I were experiencing hypo?  

Thanks,
James

When was the last time you saw a doctor and had full health checkup? We can run loops and circles speculating why you're getting lightheaded, find no real answers as your health continues to deteriorate. Go see a doctor before you end up in a hospital bed. Good luck -
