I was wanting to know if any of the women on here hads the same problem.
At that special time of the month my sugar numbers start acting up, I can have many lows and highs in the same day! To the point of feeling very light headed. Just yesterday I had took a nap due to feeling bad, when I tryed to get up I was light headed and feel in my living room which I hurt my whole left side of my body.

I use to get severe migraines at that time of the month. And my BS numbers were crazy. If I get a cold or upset stomach my numbers go up. And even after my monthly stopped for several years I still got the migraines at the same time my period should of been. Luckily that has ended. But yes I think there are more times that it does effect than not.

You know as soon as you title something, "Sorry guys, this is for women" every guy on DC is gonna read it. Not only that, but I will comment on it!
Maybe not medically, but logically, I say YES. Why? Think of all the things happening in your body. (Why do women call this a "special" time of the month? I know of no woman that thinks it is real special!) Your body is in major upheaval and having raised 2 daughters by myself, I know the pain and discomfort you go through. By the way, if you have a spouse or SO about, have them massage your feet, especially in the center, long strokes with the thumbs starting at the end of the heel and going toward the toes.
If I get a cough, cold, stomach virus or even stress, my bs go up, then if I take OTC meds for the cough or cold they the BS numbers get worse. Wish you the best, Jim
