Mild excursion caused, shortens of breath, then I felt very hot. Then I got very cold and chills. This stated at 4pm. And I am still cold. Had blur vision in my eyes. I am also nauseous at 5pm. I also still feel weak. I am type 2.

Other than the diabetes, do you have any other medical problems?

I see that you are offline. I will switch to Q&A format. This format works a lot like 'text messaging' but an email is sent to each of us anytime something is posted to this thread. We can continue to work on your question there..... :)

No have not check blood sugar. yet.

Candice,

Can you do that now and let me know what it is?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

My blood sugar 236.

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I have no other medical problems. I do have arthritis.

Candice,

I just got your BS level.

I see you have given me a positive rating....but we are still working on your issues.

I am still here.

Ok. Well, that is high sugar but not emergency level high...

That being said, I do not like that you are feeling this poorly. I really think -- and I know you are not going to like to hear this -- you should grab a good book and have someone drive you to the ER.

Better safe than sorry.

You could have a viral infection or something more serious, such as bacteremia,

Does this make sense to you?

Yes this all makes sense ,but can I still see my regular doctor tomorrow? I no longer have chills sitting here resting. But still feel little weak.

It is good that you are no longer having chills.

It would be fine to see your regular MD in the morning as long as you are not getting any worse.

I hope you feel better soon :)
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

thank you. I am going to see my regular MD in the morning.

Sounds like a good plan. G'night.
