  1. I've been checking my blood sugar per suggestions here. Wow, what a surprise. My usual level is between 96 and 106, been that way for years. Now I'm seeing readings in 110s and 120s, even a fasting 139. I've never seen readings like this before. I don't eat sugar, haven't for a decade. Since I've developed whatever I have, perhaps dys, two months ago, I'm eating very little and losing weight. My blood sugar should not be going up like this, I think.
  2. I checked my glucose the other morning, and it was a slightly high (for me) 107, so no hypoglycemia. Maybe you're right about looking into a glucose intolerance test.
  3. Merlin, reactive hypoglycemia seems like something worth looking into as well. Eating's definitely a trigger for me for all my symptoms, the bradycardia and the trembling.
  4. Science girl, so hypoglycemia triggers adrenaline? When I get these shakes it feels lot like adrenaline. I've never heard of noradrenaline before I'll have to look into it.
  5. Yes, seems like my attacks are like some of the one's that have been described above, confusion, nausea, shaking and I also get the thing where it's almost like I'm freezing, I shiver and shake, even when it's warm. The problem is that I had blood work a week ago and my glucose was fine. I've been thinking about getting a test kit and checking it throughout the day.
  6. Thanks, Becia. It's great that you have a neuro who's willing to pull straws like that with you. I haven't met mine yet, I'll see her this Thursday.
  7. I've been trying to figure out what all this new, terrible experience means. Many of my symptoms are consistent with dys, some kind of vagus problem, excess vagal tone, leading to bradycardia, but I've also got other symptoms, tremors, weakness, trembling which are consistent with hypoglycemia. Are the two things ever linked. Can dys lead to hypoglycema. I am not diabetic (at least not that I know of). Thanks,
  8. a mile hike or a 20 minute mowing session is about what I do now. I used to train like mad up until a month ago when this thing, this dys or whatever it is, hit me. When I exercise now, I tend to have increased nausea for the rest of the day. Why do it? Health. It's good for my heart.
