My issue is that for the past three weeks (since the race) I can be uncomfortable. I need to eat about every 30 minutes or I get lightheaded and nauseous. I can't run more than about 5 miles without feeling like my muscles are on fire. During those 5 miles, I have to bring sports drink or the same lightheaded feeling comes. I have fainted twice. Not for long, but definitely hit the deck. Also, if I get up too fast, I get very dizzy and loose my sight for a second.
I am thinking that this is all blood sugar and pressure related. My next dr appointment is on Monday. But, I'm feeling a little nervous about these symptoms. We weren't planning on trying to get pregnant until next year so I didn't have time to do the usual research I like before embarking on a new path. Is this stuff normal? What can I do to help? I will definitely talk more to my dr about it. I thought also asking for other advice would be helpful.
