I was diagnosed with type 1 a month and a half ago. Besides being diagnosed, my life has some added stress for my husband that is deployed overseas. I have been pretty successful in getting my BG under control, but still have some lingering other symptoms that my doctors and diabetic center have struggled to pinpoint. I thought that I would list them here and see if anyone else has had these symptoms and what their root cause is.
- despite a good BG around 120, I often feel pressure in the top of my head, in my sinus areas and at the base of my skull
- I also feel numbness in my nose, upper lip and upper teeth when my BG is rising
- if the pressure in my head is at bedtime, I experience dizzy spells as I fall asleep or even worse, they wake me up
Many people have tried to tell me that this is more psychological, then physical. Perhaps I am experiencing anxiety. That maybe so, but it seems to sometimes online with BG and other times not. Any help or anyone experienced anything similar?
