Hello, I apologize ahead of time if this isn't directly Respiratory related, but you were so nice and helpful last year when I asked you about my mothers condition that I thought you may help me again, please?
I'm a 34 yr old male who stands 5'10" and 292 pounds. I have lost 15 pounds thus far through daily exercise. I decided to step up my exercise a notch and do an hour a day more intensely. For a few weeks I was handling it quite well---good energy, feeling great, but then one day I started to feel a little knot in my upper stomach and a suppression in my desire to eat..I though it was because the exercise endorphins were kicking in and that was a good thing...but after about the 3rd day, after my exercise session, I feel very weak and fatigued...every time I walked up my stairs, my heart pounded too hard, I felt short of breath and kept getting stomach rushes and dizzy spells. Some of these things subsided slightly after a few days, but I began to crave sugar like you wouldn't believe, I feel like i need to eat more than I should (even though I feel nauseated) it's because my energy feels so low--- even after a full week of complete rest, my severe fatigue and nausea grow worse and I feel lightheaded and disconnected all the time. I feel extremely bad, main symptoms being severe fatigue, a knot in my upper stomach, nausea...I am able to eat, but food doesn't seem appealing yet at the same time i feel like I need more of it due to my low energy. Right now I'm awaiting some lab results---my ekg and chest xray were normal, but if my labs come back normal, then what? I feel so bad I just don't know what to do but almost cry and I don't do that
