Yes there is a term for it- although Im not really sure that is what you have..
A- its called Hypoglycemia (hypo-gl-eye-cee-me-a) technically diabetis is Hyperglycemia.
so it's the opposite. But does cause many of the same symptoms. You can have symptoms if you go too low or too high. You should NOT be underweight because that exacerbates the disease. But it can also be the cause of why you are...
It's odd... I can eat a Jumbo chocolate muffin with choclate chips with a latte and in an hour a normal persons blood sugar would register about 180 or more. A diabetics would skyrocket... Mine might hit 90... Because similar to a diabetic foods like that cause a reaction. Just an opposite one.
I suggest you see a doctor... ask him/her to run a measured glucose test... you will not enjoy this... you drink syrup that tastes like crap... they take blood... wait an hour they take blood.. another hour more blood etc... but it shows either hypo or hyper.
In the mean time you should a- eat more: try six mini meals a day and make sure they contain veg/lean protein/small amount of carbs... stay away from large amounts of fruit at moment... or vast amount of carbs too.
Also while at doctor... have you ever been checked for asthma or any heart issues? Have you ever been told you have a heart murmur when someone listens to your heart beat?
Hi there! If you've ever lost alot of blood, from an accident or whatever, anemia, low iron stores in your body, can make you feel weak, have legs that feel lead like, make your heart rate slow and make it feel like your heart is beating very deeply and/or strongly. I had anemia once and when I walked up stairs from the basement, I would get all those feelings, just walking through the house at normal speed, I didn't notice much. Guys don't usually get anemic like women can (who of course lose a certain amount of blood every month, or lose alot during child birth etc etc), that's why I ask if you've been in an accident. A quick trip to the Dr. and a blood test : ask specifically for a 'serum ferritin' test, they'll know what you mean.
I really feel though, based on what you have given for history, that you are deficient in magnesium, that's not a regular thing they test for in a blood test, I'm not sure, but you don't need to be tested for that any way, if you don't take any by supplement already and you don't eat literally tons of magnesium rich foods daily, you're low on magnesium, most of us with a Western type diet are.
Low magnesiumn can affect the heart drastically, the heart needs plenty of magnesium, as do many other organs.
Low magnesium affects brain function.
Low magnesium can cause muscle cramping, weakness and muscle fatigue.
Low magnesium will affect sleep and quality of.
Low magnesium can make you irritable and depressed and have feelings of impending doom.
The burning in your testicles when you wash your feet sounds like nerve related. If you get yourself some Krill Oil (omega3 fatty acids) omega 3's give the body the raw materials with which to build and repair the Myelin sheath that protects your nerves and endings, very important! Krill Oil is superior to other fish oils only because it comes with its own 'phospholipids' which must be present in order for omega3's to be absorbed.
The form of magnesium that is the most useful and bio-available for the body is in the form of magnesium choride aka magnesium oil, (which is actually just very magnesium rich sea water and not actually oil, but is does have a slightly oily texture to it). This form is more expensive, but being an athlete, you would doubly benefit from it, because it eases muscle pain and strain, while giving hard working muscles a nutrient they need while absorbing transdermally (thru the skin) for the rest of the body's use! If your local health store does not have magnesium oil a tablet will be better than none, it is not nearly as bioavailable. If you live near the ocean, go for a swim 2 times a day or more, the ocean is the world's richest source of magnesium.
I think you would greatly benefit from taking is nascent iodine and selenium, read up on it, just google nascent iodine and read all the things your body needs it for. There's not enough in salt contrary to what we're told.
These are just some of the basic tools the body needs to perform it's duties, when the body does not have these tools, it can be like a mechanic trying to fix a vehicle with only half of his tools. The body has amazing compensatory abilities, but with out the right tools it eventually starts to fail. Like the mechanic who needs a proper 1/2" wrench but only has a crescent (adjustable jaw) wrench that slips off the head of the bolt or nut he's trying to remove, soon the head of the bolt or the nut gets stripped round and now he can't remove it, it may have to be cut off or may be just left to get more worn out and eventually break off..or what ever...my analogy of the mechanic and his tools can be applied to the body and it's tools, you see? LOL I'm not a professional, I just read and research alot. I am just a Mom with a passion for house keeping the body..but I have done for myself everything that I am suggesting to others, my life is so much nicer physically and emotionally after fixing these simple deficiencies. I wish I knew what I know now when I was your age! Take care and if you need more info, message me if you want, April
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
Possibility of Vit D and testosterone deficiency and anemia, thyroid disorder and diabetes should be looked into. Post exercise nausea or Exercise induced nausea is usually due to over exercising, or abruptly stopping exercise, or over hydration. Drinking too much water before, during or after exercise could also be the cause. Eat some salty snacks and see if it helps. Exercising on empty stomach which causes blood glucose to dip with exercise can also be the cause. One should exercise after 2 hours of a light meal. Wait for a day and see. If the symptoms persist consult a doctor. The symptoms can also be due to doing more than what your body can tolerate, staring exercises without proper warm up, lung causes like asthma, heart causes (angiography, stress TMT, ECHO, EKG should all be done) or even due to muscle pull. Electrolyte imbalance and dehydration too could be a cause. It can also be costochondritis. Do consult your doctor and discuss these possibilities. Take care!
