Do You Often Feel Trembling When You Eat Rice?
Hello doctor. I am Lena, a woman of 20 years old, TB = 152 cm, BW = 49 kg. Why do I often feel trembling when I eat rice? I usually experience tremors in the late afternoon, but also in the middle of the day. I have eaten enough rice and side dishes, but still tremble. Breathing, breathing chest, trembling hands, rotating gaze, sometimes accompanied by a neck that feels like being pulled. I still experience this situation even though I have increased the portion of rice when I eat it. But, I feel relieved when eating bread. Even then, I eat white bread because I don’t like to eat sweet foods if the bread has contents. Because of that, I almost made white bread as a substitute for my staple food, rice. I’m afraid that if I keep this up, I’ll get fat. So, I reduced the portion of rice and replaced it with bread. Does this mean I am not fit to eat rice and need to replace my staple food with bread? Or is this an early sign of diabetes? But, I have no family history of diabetes and don’t urinate often. I also have enough sleep and I always have breakfast every morning, but the situation always arises. Please explain. thanks.

Trembling, shortness of breath (gasping), heart palpitations, rotating vision, and pain such as being drawn in the neck area may indicate some of the following conditions:
GERD (gastric acid reflux into the esophagus) Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) Anemia (low blood hemoglobin) Hypotension (low blood pressure) Vertigo (spinning dizziness due to a disturbance in the center of balance in the brain or inner ear) Hyperthyroidism (hyperactive thyroid gland) Heart disorders for example, valve or heart rhythm disorders, congestive heart failure Psychological disorders, etc. These conditions are unlikely to occur due to rice consumption as you are concerned. Although indeed, some people often experience gastric acid reflux after consuming certain types of food, which may be combined with rice, for example chili, mustard greens, cabbage, tubers, foods that are sour, bersantan, or oily.
The handling of your case can be varied depending on the underlying cause. Therefore, you need to first check your complaint to the doctor or a specialist in internal medicine so that you can do a more in-depth examination, for example ultrasound, x-rays, heart records, and so on. After the cause of your complaint is known, then an appropriate definitive treatment can be determined.
So that your complaints improve, we urge you to take the following steps:
Compress the painful neck with warm water Eat small portions (don't be too full) but often, every 3-4 hours Reduce consumption of foods that are prone to trigger stomach acid reflux (as mentioned above), especially as you approach sleep. Don't encourage sleep after eating, give a pause at least 2-3 hours Drinking enough water Regularly exercise Do not force yourself to excessive physical activity Calm your mind and heart Stay away from alcohol and drugs Do not smoke Do not carelessly take medicine without a prescription Hopefully it helps yes ..
