I was sent to the hospital on Wednesday morning after I didn't show up to work. They called my house and I was unable to speak intelligently, so they called 911.
When I woke up in the morning, I was confused. I was sick to my stomach, but couldn't remember who to call to let them know I wasn't coming in. I checked my BG and it was 174mg/dl.
Since my BG was ok, they told me I was probably having a small stroke. They did an MRI, which was negative (so no stroke). An EEG showed some slowing of my brain waves, but no seizure activity.
Has anything similar happened to you? The doctors are chalking it up to either a migraine or a low BG that spiked up later. My speech has since returned, but I still feel a little bit slow.
I'm a T1 on a pump. I called yesterday to get a new Dexcom, since I lost the sensor to my Dexcom 7. Hopefully that will help give me some piece of mind at least. I hope these changes aren't permanent.
