Why do I feel shaky and light headed?
A recent large study showed that the most common causes of hypoglycemia were smaller than usual food intake, delay in eating, or skipping a meal. Common symptoms of low blood sugar are: Feeling dizzy, shaky, or lightheaded. Feeling nervous or anxious.
What should I eat when I feel shaky?
Eat or drink a quickly digested carbohydrate food, such as:
- ½ cup fruit juice.
- ½ cup of a regular soft drink (not a diet soda)
- 1 cup of milk.
- 5 or 6 hard candies.
- 4 or 5 saltine crackers.
- 2 tablespoons of raisins.
- 3 to 4 teaspoons of sugar or honey.
- 3 or 4 glucose tablets or a serving of glucose gel.
Why does my body feel shaky inside?
Causes. Tremors are caused by damage in your brain affecting the nerves that control your muscles. The shaking may simply be too subtle to see. Nervous system conditions such as Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis (MS), and essential tremor can all cause these tremors.
What causes general body weakness?
Weakness. In rare cases, generalized muscle weakness may be caused by another health problem, such as: A problem with the minerals (electrolytes) found naturally in the body, such as low levels of potassium or sodium. Infections, such as a urinary tract infection or a respiratory infection.
