I'm wondering if I should be concerned about this????
My daughter is 5 & for the last couple of weeks, at least every oher day or so she tells me that she feels dizzy when she wakes up. The other day when she woke up she was walking slow because she felt like she was going to (in her words) "fall down". Sometimes when she wakes up she says she's really hungry or thirsty, we give her some food or a drink and then she seems to be fine for the rest of the day. It is ONLY in the morning...not througout the day. My first thought was that OMG she has diabetes but then I thought if that were the case wouldn't she feel like this or similar to this all day long??? I don't know if maybe she just has a very good metabolism or if its something I should be concerned about. Her ears are not bothering her...I ask her every morning and I get the answer "no mom. just like yesterday, my ears don't hurt"...and she's 5!!! LOL..........I just don't know if I should rush to the doctor's office over it
