for the past few months..possibly longer, every now and then i have been feeling impossibly weak and tired out of the blue, i can feel myself shake even though my hands arent really shaking and my whole body feels as if all the strength is being drained from me and i either feel sweaty or cold and kind of feel as if im about to pass out, usually but not always if i eat something with sugar in it im fine...someone told me it might be diabetes another one said something else but im not sure can anyone help me?
Some of the possibilities for your symptoms are anemia, diabetes,thyroid disorders, fibromyalgia(a disorder classified by the presence of chronic widespread pain and tactile allodynia(pain even on touching) ,chronic fatigue syndrome(often manifests with widespread myalgia and arthralgia, cognitive difficulties, chronic mental and physical exhaustion) ,polymyositis (means 'many muscle inflammation') and polymyalgia rheumatica(an inflammatory disorder that causes widespread muscle aching and stiffness, primarily in your neck, shoulders, upper arms, thighs and hips. It literally appears overnight, but the cause may be a problem with the immune system, perhaps involving both genetic and environmental factors).
Complete physical examination along with investigations like Hb,blood sugar levels,thyroid profile,ESR blood, platelet count Rheumatoid factor, creatine kinase,electromyography and muscle biopsy may be needed to make a diagnosis.Pls consult a physician for that.
Hope it helps.Take care and pls do keep me posted if you have any additional queries.
