Is it possible to feel low energy if you haven't eaten in awhile even if blood sugar level is around 100? Or is 100 enough to power you thru a wrkout?
Blood sugar: Hi Your low energy doesn't have anything to do with your blood sugar in this situation, the low energy is because you haven't eaten anything.

How does the alcohol in your blood get into your exhaled breath when a cop tests you with a breathalyzer?
If someone has a high tolerance to dental local anesthetics, does this mean they would also have a high tolerance to general anesthesia?

So, in short, while you may have a high tolerance to locals and generals, there is no way to use one to compare the other as they are different drugs, different categories, and different mechanisms of action. My best advice, relax and let the meds work. :-) ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it true that if you get a thorn/splinter in your foot for example, it can somehow go up into your body, into your heart, etc.? Thank you
Here are some ...: An urge to do something quickly will drive a person to act urgently and swiftly, and result in over-driving the adrenal gland to secret more adrenaline. If doing so sporadically, that's "normal"; if constantly, it becomes a problem. In fact, a person in such situation oftentimes has many other mental & physical issues.
