Unrelated: Your food/drink intake and dizziness are not likely to be related. In case you have not been drinking enough water, it would help to drink more. Drink enough water daily so that your urine is colorless. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.

Whenever I eat walnut I feel dizziness why?

Allergy vs. Spasm: It is possible you may have a weird allergic response to the walnut it is also possible that eating the walnut may cause spasm of your facial muscles and this in turn can lead to the sensation of "dizziness". Sometimes people with jaw issues will develop dizziness from eating things that are chewy or crunchy.

What should I eat if I'm feeling weak and dizzy?

What should I eat if I'm feeling weak and dizzy?

Common sense?: Some gentle advice: if your car engine started making a whining noise and the car kept stalling out at idle and not starting at all on hot days, would you post a question on cartap about what kind of gas to put in it, or would you take it to a mechanic to find out what was wrong? Your body is just like your car: find out the cause first, and the answer will follow.

Everytime I eat something I feel very dizzy and tired after. What could it be?

Everytime I eat something I feel very dizzy and tired after. What could it be?

Hypoglycemia?: Two possible reasons--some peoples glucose bottoms out after eating before heading back up to normal. Eating smaller more numerous meals can help with this. Also--your blood flow redirects to your intestines for digestion after eating and this is what can make us tired and listless after eating. However, if this is constant, see your doctor for a fasting glucose test.

Could you explain why do I get dizzy and nauseous if I don't eat in a few hours?

Hypoglycemia maybe: Are you diabetic? Use insulin? Sensitive to sugar loads? You could be suffering from hypoglycemia. I would recommend discussing with your primary physician to make sure you are not having bouts of hypoglycemia or orthostasis secondary to dehydration. Best of luck and I hope that helps!

Can a drop in sugar cause dizziness, naseua, lightheadedness and no balance and what can I eat to help?

Can a drop in sugar cause dizziness, naseua, lightheadedness and no balance and what can I eat to help?

Yes: Dizziness, nausea, lightheadedness, and feeling off-balance can all be symptoms of low blood sugar. Try drinking a glass of milk or juice and see if the symptoms go away. If you have a blood glucose monitor at home, always check your blood sugar if you are having these symptoms. If they persist after a snack, a physician can evaluate the problem.

I can't eat raw fruits and veggies and lately I've been feeling very dizzy. I need to eat better and healtier. Any tips?

Tip #1: Learn to ask clearer questions. WHY can't you eat raw fruits & "veggies"? Do you have some kind of digestive problem or do you just have an irresistIble urge for cheese puffs and Pop Tarts? How long is "lately"? What do you mean by "dizzy"? Why do you think there is a connection between dizzy and not eating better & healtier?

I'm always dizzy and tired everyday. However I eat a lot but still dizzy. I'm single. What happen on me? What should I do?

I'm always dizzy and tired everyday. However I eat a lot but still dizzy. I'm single. What happen on me? What should I do?

The most common: Cause of tiredness and dizziness in a 21 year old woman is anemia due to iron deficiency from heavy menses. After that one considers anemia from other causes and metabolic abnormalities like diabetes or thyroid disease. A simple blood test might give you answers right away (I advise that you go to the clinic and have this done)

Low blood sugar: Can cause this. Also low blood pressure can produce this sort of problem. Usually with low blood sugar you will feel hungry. I'd see a doctor and have a couple of things checked. Any chance of being pregnant or anemic?

Low blood sugar: Your symptoms could be the result of low blood sugar or just a low calorie intake. Not eating enough during the day can definitely cause these symptoms. You can become nutrient deficient. Also, if you aren't drinking enough water these symptoms can occur. Make sure you are getting enough calories and eating a variety of healthy foods.

Check up: If these symptoms have been going on for 8 months you need a checkup including blood tests for complete evaluation. The symptoms are nonspecific.
