Dizzy, weak and shaky after eating

I am 11 weeks 5 days. Every time I eat I feel sick, shaky and very dizzy about halfway through my meal and often have to lie down afterwards. My GP doesn't seem concerned, but I am really struggling at work or if I am out and about. I have an under active thyroid, but just had it tested and all ok. Does anyone else experience this?

One of my friends had this when she was pregnant - I think she had what is known as reactive hypoglycaemia? She was told to eat complex carbs and it did resolve itself as soon as she had her baby. Might be worth asking to borrow a glucose monitoring kit from doctor so you can test your blood sugar when you start to feel strange. Hope you feel better soon.

Thank you for your reply. Was she put on any medication or just told to eat complex carbs? Will give it a go. My diet is currently awful as I'm still suffering from morning sickness, so am struggling to find things I can stomach, but am sure some whole grains will go down ok...! X

As far as I remember it was just dietary control, but I know she did used to monitor her blood sugar several times a day. Hope your doctor takes you more seriously as it doesn't sound very pleasant.

I'll mention it at my next appointment. Thank you.
