I’m 6 (almost 7) months post op. The last few weeks I’ve been experiencing some strange symptoms. My chest hurts when I exhort too much energy, my arm gets numb. I’m extremely tired, can’t walk for long without becoming light headed 🥴 it’s been getting better (the doctor put me on a steroid after running every test in the books) they helped. I ran out and I started becoming shaky while at the store. So I did something I don’t typically do. I bought a Reese’s and ate one and the shaking stopped pretty quickly. Got me thinking that maybe everything has to do with my blood sugar. Every single symptom is listed for hypoglycemia. Has anyone experienced this?

I've been getting lightheaded but assumed it was blood pressure. I hadn't thought about eating something to make it better. Ask your surgeon.

I’m at the doctors now they just pricked my finger. I’m on a drug that lowers blood sugar and haven’t been eating much sugar because of the surgery. So they think this might be the correct diagnosis.

Your symptoms sound classic and your dr ruled out other factors. I was glycemic years ago. They make hypoglycemic tabs available in most pharmacies you can carry with you. They may have perfected the tests but I never tested positive. The test is (or was at least) based on the premise that my blood sugar dropped in the time frame they came in and tested it. Good luck! You will feel so much better now that you know what’s going on and can knick those episodes as soon as they start

Good to know the correct diagnosis. Now you can take care of yourself. Good luck!

Finished my appt. my blood sugar was low. My husband gave me a kit Kat (has 22g sugar in it) ate that and feel much better now. Going to the store and going to pick up some apple juice and maybe something else like a couple bananas. That’ll help me a ton.
