    Low bood pressure might make you feel feint. Low blood sugar usually makes you tremble, jittery, and feel weak- could be described as feeling feaint. And if you have both- you definitely will feel weak & feint &.won't feel good.

    Is it new? Is it when you sit up or stand up- postural? do you wear a binder? hose?Make sure you are not dehydrated also & get your blood count-CB checked. If low, bleeding from somewhere?

      Thanks,


      It’s higher blood sugar, around 200. As far as new, it’s been about a year, give or take. Things either start about 30 to 60 minutes after getting up or after eating, (any time of day). Don’t stand. Talk to my Doc the other day and he said, “Let’s try a binder and eat a little more salt”, I don’t eat salt at all. I use Hose and drink tons of water. Since using salt in the last two days things have been better.
