    hi
    wondering if anyone can help
    i have suffered with what i thought was my anxiety symptoms for about 6wks now.
    i went through 2wks where everything was great,then was poorly with a mix of dumping and medication probs. ive not really been the same since ๐Ÿ™
    after eating somethings i get a weird feeling like,a mix of sicky unsettled kinda thing. not dumping but almost like the feeling you get when your panicky( which i dont think iam) i can also get a headache . i can also just not feel right . sorry its so vague but its hard to explain. i always thought it was anxiety/panic attacks but im really starting to wonder.
    i have heard of something relating to your blood sugar and wondered if anyone else has and if they can give any advice? ive had fasting bloods before but i mainly feel worse after eating or if i go a long time between eating.
    thanks for listening, a sad mandy ๐Ÿ™

    Hi Mandy

    I definitely think this is one for your GP to sort out for you. It does sound like diabetic hypo but then dumping can feel like that! So, if I were you, I would get along to your GP for more tests. If it IS panic attacks, then you still need to get help with them.

    Hope you soon feel better ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I think you should ask for a blood test. I felt odd after my op and it was discovered that I had low haemoglobin levels and needed a blood transfusion.

    Whatever your problem is, I hope that your Dr can help you.

    Good luck!

    Hey mandyl,

    Have you had an update yet? I’ve not had my op but blood sugars have always worried me as ever since I had pancreatitis I’ve suffered with low blood sugar and worried how I will maintain it after surgery. I’d be very interested to see how you are getting on and if it is related but mainly because I hope you are more comfortable and not having more problems ๐Ÿ™‚

    Take care and best of luck ๐Ÿ™‚

    Hi Mandy, just wondering if you have had your GP appt. yet? I find I often feel sick when I have just eaten, and have no idea why, so can understand this is worrying you, and hope you can find a solution. xx

    Hi Mandy. Could be stress? If you are waiting to have a procedure, no matter how routine, it can make you stressed and we all know how that affects digestion! Hope you get sorted x

    it certainly could
    what with the bike accident and dreading my endo and ct apps. mind you i may have helped mr slater with that,as for the 2nd time ive been bringing up brown stuff(sorry) which i understand can be a sign of an ulcer ๐Ÿ™

    I gather ulcers are a risk after the surgery, but I am sure the endoscopy is going to show up the answer, and I am a woose when it comes to these too, and kicked and fought during my last one (didn’t know I was doing it till afterwards), but at least is doesn’t last very long, and then they can move on to helping you properly. Hope this is soon sorted for you. xx
