Here I am sat in my car ready for what feels like it’s going to be a very long day at work.
Ok here is my issue, exactly 12 months ago I started having strange feelings.
- fatigue (feelings really tired)
- Feelinng sick
This was happening every few hours right up to the point where twice I almost passed out in public places and almost had to call for an ambulance.
Since then I’ve been back and forth to the doctors. I told them I felt like I was having diabetes type symptoms. I’ve had blood tests taken for A1c (twice), Vitamin D, 24 hour ECG and I’ve been monitoring both my blood glucose and my blood pressure. Every time my blood sugars seem fine. Usually in the range of 5.0 and 7.5.
Still i am no further than I was 12 months ago. This morning I got up and measured my blood glucose which read at 5.1. I could however feel the shakes starting to come on. After 15 minutes I was sat watching the TV feeling sick as ever. I was struggling to even get up to switch the TV over which was 8 feet away. I was shaking, feeling weak, sick, palpitations.
I managed to get up and get some breakfast. I had a bowl of cereal and within 15 minutes or so. I felt normal again. I took a blood sugar reading and it was at 7.0.
I got in the shower to get ready for work, had a mug of tea and helped my partner get my two children ready. I tested my self again an hour later and my sugars had dropped to 5.5 and I could feel the shakes starting again.
Which brings me here. Sat in the car park outside work contemplating life. My doctors don’t know what’s wrong with me and I feel stuck. I certainly don’t have high blood sugars but I do feel like my symptoms are definitely how a diabetic would feel.
This is really getting me down. I feel depressed as I feel like I’m struggling to control what ever this is. My doctors keep telling me my symptoms aren’t of what a diabetic would experience and hay my results don’t signify anything of that. My doctor th Via it could be “hypertension” which I think is rubbish and I do have an 24 hour blood pressure monitor to wear tomorrow.
Any help and advice would be very much appreciated.
