A few weeks ago I went to urgent care w/ extremely low blood sugar (chills, shaking, nausea, low body temp), they thought it was pred withdrawal and put me back on pred, which made me instantly feel better. Now they're saying my cortisol level was high and it was not pred withdrawal, and are making me see and endocrinologist (have never seen one before confused ). Has anyone else had anything like this happen to them? I was sure it was pred withdrawal but now I'm just scared!

My blood sugar fluctuates really easily (maybe I should get that tested..) and if I don't eat every few hours, I feel lousy.

I've had the chills, shaking, nausea, low body temp, dizziness - that comes with low blood sugar. As soon as I have a juice, peanut butter, fruit, oatmeal or soup- I feel better within 30 mins or less. I know it's hard to eat or drink when you feel like that, but helps so much. The same goes for when I have too much sugar! When I just can't say no to ice cream - when I know I shouldn't eat it - I get lightheaded and dizzy because there is too much sugar for my body to work with. It happens, and it's not any fun. I know I do it to myself which makes it frustrating. Just yesterday my blood sugar was low - running around all day outside - I slammed some roasted almonds (renn fair!) and it helped within 10 minutes.

Unfortunately, if I don't maintain a strict eating schedule I feel just like you mentioned. It's a full time job maintaining the proper foods, I wish I could hire a cook! (or a personal grocery shopper!)

What had you eaten that day you felt like that?

It happened right as I woke up. I also had it every single morning for 2 wks until they put me back on pred. I felt better immediately and assumed it was adrenall insufficiency, but now they say the blood tests show its not. I wasn't in a flare at the time either.
