My blood sugar was high because of stress, and recovery from my surgery. But it was 111 this morning. The weird thing is that it was not low, but I was feeling weakness in my legs, wrists, and I was kinda shaky. Why is that?

That happened to me when my blood sugars started to come down and stabilize. Almost like a "false low". It lasted about a week for me. And it may happen more than once with each new step down. It did for me. Just be sure to test when you feel that way to be sure that you aren't really low and you'll be fine!

My wife Jem had problems with her Blood Glucose (BG) levels (many of them over 300) when she had to take certain medications.

She had false lows all the time. She would usually get those false lows at night when we were asleep. So I would awake to Jem chowing down on frosted animal cookies, or anything she could get her hands to give her a BG rise.

I think that I only got a meter on her before she got to eating. She didn't like me stopping her eating, so she never woke me again, she just chowed down!

She said she was trying to be kind to me by letting me sleep, but I suspect she just wanted to chow down. (She was blind so she needed me to read her meter).

This is what happened to me. I was so used to being over 200 when I had my first 98 I thought I was going to faint. LOL. Your body gets used to high numbers and even normal numbers make it feel funny. Hopefully you will get used to the lower numbers and feel better soon.
