well I have felt awful all day. again I discovered tonight I have lost another pound from last week and I try to eat even if my stomach is off. It is bad if I don't eat because of hypoglycemia . but then I feel bad sometimes after I eat if it was the wrong thing and I haven't figured that out yet. so this morning I felt awful and thought, maybe I need to eat and was going to check this new blood glucose machine I just ordered to see what it was like only to find out it didn't come with the strips no one told me that. so I ate anyway. felt a little better for a while then right back to just feeling sluggish, jumpy , and really out of it again. I tried so many things that now I am thinking I over did the grabbing at straws thing. I really wish my doctors were more caring. Monday I am going to call a couple of doctors my friend told me are really good. We will see. I felt so bad, I told my son I sure hope they find whats wrong before I die with it. actually I have felt so bad at times I didn't care if I died so I will quit suffering.

Those machines use to come with at least 10 strips their getting crazy but also sometimes they charage for more strips if you have insurance.

here i n California Medicare pays for m y strips and diabetic supplies too which is an enormous help as the strips are so costly.

I hope they can figure it out soon! It could be finding the right foods or at least in a particular combination for your condition. Sometimes I think it's better to do your own research about these things - it's wonderful there are forums and stuff online for those with similar conditions - all their findings and experiences can be shared. I feel like doctors often go by the textbook but don't necessarily understand what really helps.

I'm so sorry that you aren't feeling well. I hope you are able to find another doctor who can help you. I know what it's like to not have the right doctor.

it is really not because of a diet. it is because of low blood sugar. then i think it gets to high after i eat. not sure.

@bunnybon7 you need a doctor who is an endocrinologist that will check you sounds llike you are diabetic with some neuropathy which causes pain.

I hope they figure out what the problem is. Did you eat protein or carbs, protein might be better for blood sugar.

No, do not say that you do not care to die. I can imagine you are down because you do not feel well, but think that the new doctors can help you and you can feel better soon. Take care and be brave.

I know what you mean! I have fibro and a lot of pain, there are times I just want to cut off what's wrong. I saw one of those forensic shows where a man shot himself in the back of his head because that's where he hurt... I feel that way about my neck sometimes!

Poor thing. I really hope that they can find out what's wrong with you, and life can go back to normal. I cannot imagine missing a meal, much less to miss so many meals inbetween, and worry about intake of food and health.
