    Why would your bladder be full? If you eat enough in the morning, which you currently are not, and drink throughout the day, you should be fine.

    Sitting trot is a lot of work, it's a huge ab workout and therefore you need to be able to replace those lost calories else you WILL be very dizzy and feeling ill.

    No if anything I have the opposite problem - my resting heart rate is too high relative to my low BP. Interesting though.

    See your doctor. There is a thing you can blow into and it measures lung capacity- will be reduced if asthma or allergies are in the way.

    See if you can get a prescription for a glucose monitor- they are free at CVS. If you have an episode you can take your blood sugar immediately.

    You can also get a blood pressure monitor and take your blood pressure when you are having an episode.

    I used to have blackouts when standing up or exercising- it was from malnutrition.

    Asthma isn't just brought on by allergies, there are other reasons too. I would go to a pulmonary specialist before I went to an allergist but that is just my opinion.

    Definately chat to your go but the first step would be to eat more and add protein. Bacon and eggs sounds like just the thing!
