My blood pressure has been elevated today 190/71....it has since some down and is staying between 154-163/70. I have been slightly dizzy at times,and with very little appetite. I am also diabetic and take 30ml Humolog once daily in the morning. Last night I had an episode and my husband called he paramedics. My sugars were very low and I was very confused and at times unconscious. I don't remember it all. My husband said that I was cold and clammy. Sugars have been good today but I'm wondering if I had a TIA.

Can I call you. I have free calling in the USA

Hi, I am sorry; I am not in a position to do the phone-service due to certain technical constraints. I will opt-out from this question and return this question back to the expert pool so that some other expert who is hopefully able to offer phone-service will try to assist you with your health questions.

Please wait for the next expert. And please try to avoid replying to this post, otherwise this question may get locked back to me again and prevent other experts from taking up your question.

Wishing you all the very best!

Best Regards!

This does not seems like TIA though

Most likely an episode of hypoglycemia

With TIA generally there are other symptoms like weakness of a part of body

Please do let me know if you have any more question

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
