It’s been a while since I have blogged, so I thought it would be time for a quick update.
I’m still having seizures and it is still annoying me. I’m still under investigation and I’m due for another blood test on Tuesday morning – this time I have to fast before. This has come off the back of a number of symptoms:
- Extreme thirst
- Being constantly tired
- Needing the toilet more than usual
- Some very low BMs (usually following a seizure). Lowest reading so far as been 2.2
While I have not had any high BM readings it doesn’t mean that I am not suffering from episodes of abnormally high blood sugar, so, coupled with a history of diabetes in my family the doctors are going to investigate this as being a possibility.
It does make sense that low blood sugar is a trigger for the seizures I am having as when my BM has been taken following a seizure it has been quite low, but then again the two could be completely unrelated!
I am starting to prepare for the two re-sits I have which I am not looking forward to, there is a lot to revise for the two exams and I really just want them over so that I can finally progress into my third year!
Other than that life has been very boring, as you have probably gathered from my twitter updates. I have some things that I hope to blog about, and hope to do so on Sunday!
