The last couple of weeks I've been really tired and not feeling my usual self. On Saturday something happened that was really very scary. I'm glad the boys weren't here because after seeing Grandpa take a stroke, they didn't need to see what happened to Grandma.
It was Saturday afternoon, just after lunch. I'd had a bowl of soup and a tuna sandwich. I felt fine. Suddenly my feet got very hot. I thought my blood was boiling. Then this sensation crept up my body right to my head.
I thought I was going to faint and called hubby. I was leaning against the door frame to keep myself in an upright position. My vision was a bit blurry and I was very weak and felt nauseous. I made my way to the kitchen and sat down. I asked hubby to get me a cold wash cloth, which he did. I put that on my face and felt a little better, but was having trouble breathing. I sent hubby for my inhaler out of the medicine cabinet and took two puffs. That helped a little.
I had to go and lie down but asked hubby to stay in the room for a bit. I was not comfortable with what was happening to me. He brought me two ativan, which I sometimes have to take for anxiety. It wasn't long until I fell asleep, but had asked him to keep an eye on me.
An hour and a half later, I woke up and felt much better, but still very weak. Later in the day I had a bad case of indigestion. About this time I was wondering if it was my heart. That passed and I felt better.
I called the nurses line that is available to Ontario residents. She asked me if I'd taken my blood sugar. I told her that I did when having the spell because I wondered if I was having a blood glucose low. It was 11.2. She asked me to take it for her again while I was talking to her and it was 14.6. She told me to drink 4 glasses of water in the next 4 hours. When that time had passed, my blood glucose was 8.5, so it had come down a lot.
Don't know what happened, but it scared me and hubby half to death. Still feeling a little weak. Please forgive me if I haven't been by to visit.
Hope you all had a great Valentine's Day weekend.
