Hi there my name is Lori and I am reaching out to this site to try to find some answers to what is going on with me.

for about a month now I have been having odd bouts of something going on.

about every hour to 2 hours I have a episode I dont know what to call it. I flush in the face I become disconnected and some times cant talk. My eyes swim and all energy is zapped out of me. I ended up in the emergency room 3 weeks ago because I couldnt function or communicate. It was found that I have Hypothyroidism. The doctor also had me do some testing to see about hypoglycemia. That all came back within normal ranges maybe slightly elevated. Now I am having these episodes which seem to happen after I eat a meal. I though it was me crashing. If I eat something high in protein it seems to bring me out of it but sometimes it takes 15-20 minutes.

If any one has experienced this or can lead me in the right direction I would be thankful to have some direction to go.

Lori, you really need to see a doctor about your episodes. If the one you've been going to can't help you, please try another one.
