So I have been battling diabetes among many other illnesses. Lately I have had a problem keeping my blood sugars low. I keep getting bs as high as 500+. I'm on insulin along with other meds for other problems. My main concern right now is that when my sugar is high, I take my insulin and my heart starts to race really fast, I get chest pains n very lightheaded. Am I at risk for a heart attack? I feel like I'm having or about to have one but can't tell the difference between heart attack and anxiety attacks. Being a diabetic I'm not sure if we run a risk of heart attacks as a complication to diabetes. Does anyone know the answer? I'm really concerned about my heart. I go to bed feeling like I may not wake up tomorrow due to palpitations, chest pains n heart rate very high. Any info would be appreciated. Btw happy new year to all. Hope we have a better yr in 2013!!!
