Hi, im 15 years old and for around two months now ive been getting symptoms of hypoglycemia.
I've been sick a few times if i haven't eaten in a few hours, which i used to be able to do quite easily. Before I'm actually sick though, I feel incredibly hungry and faint. It all happens so fast. I also feel dizzy, tired and weaker and I've heard from another source that symptoms such as being emotional, crying more easily, mood swings and not being able to concentrate or make your own decisions are common, which I have been experiencing.
I always eat breakfast, lunch and dinner and usually have at least one snack in between each meal but on the occasions where i miss lunch for example, i end up being sick or feeling terrible. I never miss breakfast.
The only medication I am taking at the moment is the combined contraceptive pill, Microgynon 30. Can I just say that I am only taking this as I have very heavy periods and not because I am sexually active. But I have heard that the pill can cause symptoms of hypoglycemia. Does anyone know if this is true?
I am 5'9 and weight 8 stone 6 which I am assuming is a healthy weight, I also have a high metabolism but am worried that because I am eating so often, that i may put on weight.
So please can someone tell me if they think I am suffering from this and give me some tips on what to do. Also, should I see my doctor?
Thank you so much.
