Hi, everyone --
I started insulin yesterday and it may be a coincidence, but I felt like my sinuses started to fill up right away. Today I feel like I'm coming down with a cold.
Is this a common symptom of insulin, and if so, will it go away in time?
If not, I'm hoping it is a coincidence and it is indeed just a cold coming on, because otherwise, I'm a bit concerned it is an allergy to either the insulin or the preservative used, and that would be disappointing. I'd really like this new insulin therapy to work. I was on oral meds (metformin and diamicron) and Victoza and doing well in theory, but I felt awful all the time. I'd really like to start feeling well for a change.
I did a google search looking for side effects, but didn't come up with anything that sounded like my experience. I'm hoping someone here will be able to shed some light.
