I've been on the full dose (10000mg) of metformin twice daily for the past 5 days. I feel like I'm having lows. This happens right after a meal, and has happened three times now. The lowest reading I've seen is in the 120's - which I know is still high for some. Is it, perhaps, just the sudden drop that I'm feeling the effects of? The feeling I'm having is much like described on another post here. I feel queasy, heart rate is elevated, I'm anxious to the point I feel like crying, shaky - just a really bad feeling. Do I sound crazy? I'm sure feeling crazy!
I had to cancel my appointment with the Diabetic Educator and Dietitian for tomorrow. The up-front charge for that is $388 and that doesn't work in my budget this week. :(
Thanks for listening. I don't post (or respond) often, but I'm reading everything in sight. My husband is being sweet and very supportive. I don't want to talk about this to everyone I know… for some reason I feel embarrassed about my diagnosis. (crazy again!?!?) You are my sounding board, so thank you!
