Shakes and Dizzyness

Thursday, 08 December 2011 08:57 AM

Question: I get the shakes and become dizzy when I don’t eat. I have to eat something and lie down, and it takes hours to recuperate. I go to the VA, but my appointment is six weeks away. Can you help?
Dr. Hibberd's Answer:
It is extremely difficult to know the cause of your “shakes” and dizziness without taking your complete history. It is best that you have decided to seek medical attention where you will be thoroughly examined. In the meantime, I suggest you eat four to five small meals every day. Make sure they are low in fat and well-balanced with fruits and vegetables. Try to avoid doing heavy exercise until you meet your doctor.
