I'm really tired of this.

I'm not putting in a request for energy or anything of the like because I think it may actually mask whatever the issue is.  I'm not trying to just get through but get things fixed in the long term.

I guess I'm just complaining, but I'm really sick of it.

I've sort of had the gluten issues somewhat straightened out - well, to the degree that I know when I'm going to be swollen and miserable because of something I've eaten, and have just been able to accept and deal.

Which I guess is a part of the difficulty.  The diuretic that I take to drop the retained water is causing a bunch of other problems - or at least I'm blaming everything on the diuretic right now because I can't think of anything else to blame it on.  Even though I've taken it once recently, 2 days ago.

Long story short, and pardon the TMI, I'm pissing what smells like hawaiian punch concentrate.  I'm sweating it, my mouth tastes like it, I smell like a bowl of corn pops.  Sugar Coated.  This has happened a couple times in the last couple weeks, but usually in conjunction with the meds.

I've through this and some research determined this probably means something insulin related.  I also noticed in the indications for the diuretic that when taken with Diazoxide, it can cause hyperglycemia but I'm not taking anything that would even  be in the same family, and it's been two days since I've taken the diuretic anyways.

The advice nurse at the Dr's called me back, and gave me no info outside of "wow, that sounds strange."  That and that in early April they checked glucose levels and everything looked alright.

She is going to talk to the Dr. and call me back again, hopefully sometime before another 6 hours go by.

I'm frustrated, annoyed, really tired of health issues and just in general want to throw rocks at something.

After awhile, it just leaves you at the point of being like screw it all, laying down and just giving up on ever feeling good.

It also makes me hate my Dr who charges a feckin fortune and does the bare bones minimum.  I almost hope something terrible does happen so I can sue his ass for making me feel like a head case every time I call and then charging me a fortune to add insult to injury.

I have a headache.

I'm holding off, mostly because I think applying energy gets me through, only to break down a little farther down the road.  So I figure, if it's going to break, then let the other shoe drop already.

Long story short, and pardon the TMI, I'm pissing what smells like hawaiian punch concentrate.  I'm sweating it, my mouth tastes like it, I smell like a bowl of corn pops.  Sugar Coated.  This has happened a couple times in the last couple weeks, but usually in conjunction with the meds.

I am diabetic, and that happens to me when my sugar 'spikes'.  It tends to happen occasionally even when I'm good on my meds.  It seems to be random, and I don't bother going to the hospital now, I just surround myself with (weirdness alert) lilacs in season or lilac oil out of season.

It might be stupid or self-neglectful, but all the times I've gone to the hospital they just put me in overnight for observation, and discharge me in the morning.  I suppose it's a coma-watch, but except for dizziness and tiredness in these episodes I've never come close to coma.

The lilac thing was because of my grandfather, who was a medicine worker.  I've since found out that the most common diabetic pill is developed from lilacs (french lilacs - I don't know what kind you may have there) but it could be just psychological, too.

If you start greying out or forgetting how to talk properly, skip your doctor entirely and go to emerge.  My mother is the opposite of diabetic - sweets make her drop unholy amounts of weight and have trouble concentrating.  Lilacs work for her, too, but she has been hospitalized and fed bread, basically.  I know you can't eat bread, but that is what made me think of my mom.  She needs it in her diet to keep her sugar up, and nothing else will really do it as efficiently.

No medical science here, just similar experience.  You have much the same genetic background as me and my mom, so maybe you could find a bread-substitute or some lilac oil for sniffing.  Or monitor your speech and vision and get thee to an emergency room at the right time for tests to show what's going on.

That sounds absolutely horrible. I hope you're able to get things figured out quickly as it doesn't sound like it's very good.

I crashed early last night, and things seem to be somewhat better this morning.  Then again I just avoided eating sugar like the plague last night, and that seems to have helped.  Still sweaty and somewhat gooey feeling, but not nearly as bad as yesterday. 

I'll go with the lilac thing cause goodness knows you can't go wrong with lilac for any reason really.  Any excuse for lilac.

The Dr called back later yesterday with the astonishing suggestion "well, if it seems to be in connection to the diuretic,  then stop taking it."  I think I could have figured that one out.   Roll Eyes  I swear, the man's a genius at pointing out the obvious.

So the wait and see is going to be the mode I guess.

Thanks :-)
