any explanation besides gastric dumping syndrome

User Profile
I have been suffering from severe fatigue for most of my life and had my first hypoglycaemia episode when I was about 11 years old.
I have visited many doctors over the years and had many tests done which all came back normal.

However I recently decided to measure my own blood sugars at home. I ate a high carb meal with a sugary energy drink. My sugar level was 5.6 before the meal, 7.3 directly after the meal and 2.2 one hour after the meal.

I can not find any explanation of the rapid change other than gastric dumping syndrome which does not apply to me as I have never had stomach surgery.

Throughout my life I have alsp experienced severe hormonal swings and wondering if this has something to do with it. I was diagnosed with pcos at one point then a few months later told I didn't have it as my bloods were now normal. Can anyone help?

It is more likely that you have a severe anxiety or OCD about having medical issues, which have not been confirmed by your doctors after a proper examination.

Your symptoms are more likely psychogenic.

It would be best that you consult a psychiatrist and seek proper help to manage your anxiety.
