    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,
    WebMD Message Boards Management

    I constantly off and on get really weak shakey feelings and feel like I'll pass out and have passed out a few times in the past and the main thing that helps is food. Mainly sweats. I wonder if it's my sugar too low or what. Waiting on my photo id so I can get a doctor to check me out

    Until you can see a doctor, you can purchase a blood glucose testing kit inexpensively. WalMart sells them as do most chain drug stores. As soon as you start feeling dizzy, you can test.
