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.


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 :-) 

I'm gonna tell my son to join a circus so that death is cheap
And games are just another way of life
And I'm gonna tell my son to be a prophet of mistakes
Because for every truth there are half a million lies
And I'm gonna lock my son up in a tower
Till he learns to let his hair down far enough to climb outside.
-LIz Pahir
