Dr. Phil here.

can you repeat your question here?

Customer: replied 8 months ago.
I started with sudden feelings of hypoglycaemia, headache,sweating,shaking,nausea and felt as though I was about to pass out june 25th this year.This was resolved by sugar followed by longer acting carbohydrate. They have continued though less severe.A random blood sugar was 8.8mmols/l. Along with these symptoms (which I don't always get all at the same time),I sometimes have instability when waking. I get a sudden surge of headache on top of the baseline headache I have had for c. 3months now.One dr thinks I may have a neuroendocrine tumour. I saw an endocrinologist and had 3 consecutive fasting glucose tests. The GP has had no indication as to the cause yet. I saw the GP this morning and have been referred to neurology.There doesn't sem to be any pattern to the symptoms and they can come ad hoc.I even had trouble with balance during the night last night along with severe headache. I have felt hung over for the past week.I never drink alcohol and have never smoked.
