I recently hurt my back and while I don't usually take meds to manage pain, I opted in this time and am taking both Oxycodone and Valium (and ibuprofen). I've noticed that I've had pretty useless boluses since taking hte meds. Every now and then I bolus and see my bg drop appropriately, but mostly it just goes up as if I didn't bolus at all, and I'm hesitant to just keep correcting--what if it all finally kicks in!?
Admittedly with the back injury I'm pretty sedentary so I can't exercise to jump start my metabolism. I find it very frustrating of course. I'm coming off of two consecutive A1c's of 5.7, so having my bg basically sitting at 200 for days straight is driving me crazy!
Anybody know if it is the drius, or just the combination of not moving much, and probably high cortisol activity due to the injury? Ay tips to get around this? The frustration from the pain and inability to do things is more than enough for me. I really would like to not have the mental agitation added in.
