I just visited my endo yesterday and mentioned this to him. He says if it continues to reach out. It seems like I’m going to have to do just that.
Anyway, I had a BAD hypo a couple of weeks ago. I’ve got some new clients and am coming off of a lot of stress, so I’m stressed because I want to do well with these clients: more stress. One day I had a meeting and started my morning by working. Then realized I needed to get out for this meeting, so I just took off without eating. My low was starting when I left my house, so I grabbed a sweet drink and hopped in an Uber to get to the train. It worked for a little bit, and thank goodness they had some food show up. They know I have diabetes, but they didn’t know how bad my low was. They knew though because I had a couple of glucose tablets during the meeting.
Ever since that day, I’ve had a headache that comes and goes. I’ve noticed that on days where I try to ignore it, it just gets worse. On days where I feel it coming on, I try to relax. This is also odd for me because I was the person who never really suffered much from headaches. What a change this has been. I also just turned 50, so I think I’m also dealing with perimenopause symptoms, so I’m taking an over the counter med and vitamins for that. Those seem to be helping. Thank goodness.
Unfortunately, I can’t take Tylenol or Ibuprofen due to wearing a CGM and retinopathy. I do have Tramadol, an opiate, but don’t take it much because of the risk of addiction.
My primary care doc knows because I had a string of days about a week ago where I had tooth pain, that headache, and menstrual cramps. I didn’t want to take Tramadol, so one of those days I just sucked it up. I’ll be seeing her the first week of February. I’m also going to let my endo know this pain keeps coming up but has anyone else had something similar?
