Hello and welcome, I am happy to help you today.

Are you diabetic or hypertensive?

Did you check your blood sugar and blood pressure when you felt light headed?

I am still available online to respond after you answer my query / queries.

No I have not checked it but was not sure if I should make a docts appointment or not. I thought it was related to stress so I started taking Valerian Root 450 mg with no luck but it is almost to the point that I find myself walking sideways in order to keep my composer. It is really beginning to worry me. about 6 months ago a urine test was taken to see if there was glucose in my urine and there was not so they said that I was not diabetic

Thanks for getting back to me , Angie.

Diabetes is not diagnosed based on the presence or absence of sugar in urine but rather by its blood level.

You should get your fasting and post prandial / after meal blood sugar tested now to accurately diagnose diabetes.

You should also check your blood pressure: both low BP as well as exteremly high BP can cause dizziness.

Other possibility is dehydration, metabolic imbalances. But these possibilities should be checked out after you have excluded abnormal blood sugar and blood pressure.

I hope my answer has helped you. Please leave behind a positive feedback if you liked my answer to give credit for my time and expertise. Bonuses are warmly appreciated.

I can go as far as to say it could have resulted in saving my sons life and our entire family now knows what bipolar is and how to assist and understand my most wonderful son, brother and friend to all who loves him dearly. Thank you very much

Corrie MollPretoria, South Africa

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

ClaudiaAlbuquerque, NM

KevinBeaverton, OR

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.

John and StefanieTucson, AZ

I have been dealing with an extremely serious health crisis for over three years, and one your physicians asked me more questions, gave me more answers and encouragement than a dozen different doctors who have been treating me!!
