hi everyone i have not been a regular on this site but I know this is the place to ask these questions and get information .
a few days ago I was feeling shaky and gittery. I didn’t and still don’t know what that means? does it mean that my sugar is too low or too high? I didn’t check it because I was out of strips and didn’t have the money to go get them from the pharmacy. but that was a couple of days ago.
saturday evening my right arm began to ache then the fingers in my hand went numb and stayed numb until monday morning. after the feeling came back into my fingers I later began to feel like I had no energy at all. I was not physically tired, I just lacked energy. it was as if my life force was draining away and all I wanted to do was lay down. when I got up to walk the dog I could not complete the walk I had to stop and rest for a while and felt weak, finally i made it home it was a very short walk but I just was drained of all energy and could do no more. I took my meds, I am only on glucophage and linosinopril, and I ate some walffles thinking maybe i need to ingest some carbs or something. then I laid down and waited for it to pass over. the feeling or weakness and tiredness has slowly left me now.
I plan to see my doctor but my appointment is not until july. I’m thinking I should make an appointment sooner or go to a walk in clinic.asap.
has anyone had this happen to them? feeling over all sense of energy drain, or a sudden numbness in the fingers and/or toes? what happened? in your case,. I have been told to take a multivitamin and calcium which I have thus far failed to do. but I will if it will help. I don’t drink milk or milk products I am allergic to milk.
I could tell you I dont’ eat sugar anymore but I’d be lying, I love the wendys frosties and at least one or twice a week will have one of their specialty coffees or shakes. I know I shouldn’t but I keep telling myself that just one won’t hurt. maybe this is my body’s way of saying," Yes just one can hurt."
so other than seeing the doctor what can any of you tell me about what i have experienced? and have any of you experienced the same?.
thanks for sharing
