Wow another year then, and as if to celebrate my Bg’s threw me a dooozy of a hypo on sunday night/monday morning, like a can’t move, might’ve had a fit before the waking bit, appendages not in control, eating anything in sight kinda, sweating profusely and conversely being freezing cold type of hypo.
Weirdness ahoy… I don’t know if I am the only one who gets this symptom, but I used to when I was on lantus and had night hypos, I can hear/see but can’t move or speak like I am paralysed, it’s a wee bit scary and rather annoying. Well after i managed to regain control of my limbs (i presume my liver helped me out, thanks bud), I was still unable to speak, I knew what I was thinking but I couldn’t get my brain to make my mouth work and I didn’t want to wake my hubby as it would of scared him as i was slurring and making noises not words, i wouldn’t have been able to tell him it was a hypo though in my present clear state of mind I am sure he would have known but at the time it seemed better not to wake him… So that was all very Weird, by the time I got to do my BG after having some lucozade it was 3.7 mmol, then I got the post hypo munchies, I had a total of about 85g CHO and still only woke up at 14.8 mmol, which is a miracle as I didn’t have any insulin to cover the munchies. Anyways I felt like my brain was cotton wool yesterday, I was freezing all day, like chilled to the bone, all the muscles in my legs hurt, it was just plain hard functioning and staying awake. >:oP
Today however I am pleased to report that while my legs are still killing me I am my razor sharp mind (pah ha) is fully functioning and i’m off out for lunch in a bit with my mum.
Here’s to never having that happen again (looks to heaven and touches wood) x x x
