Hi all I'm from the Lyme forum but I've been having what seems to be blood sugar swings. The way I explained it to the doc he said it could be seizures so I had some testing done and all came back normal. My question is do some of you feel spaciness and foggy brain when your blood sugar swings? Thanks

Hi and welcome. Sorry about what you're going through.

Wide blood sugar swings, high to low to high, would probably make a person feel odd, maybe queasy or dizzy. But to know if it's the blood sugar, you would have to test your blood sugar at those times. If you have a blood sugar meter, you could test yourself and see what's going on. If it is your blood sugar, then you would need further lab tests.

Could it be blood pressure? Or, could it be anxiety? All of these might have the same manifestations.

I'm wondering why your doctor said "seizures". Seizures related to what?

Diabetes/blood sugar problems often run in families so if you have family members with diabetes (type 2) and if you are overweight, then it could be your blood sugar, but then you would need to test yourself when you're having those feelings as I said.

If it does turn out to be blood sugar, then it's best to eat meals at regular times, don't skip meals and don't load up on a lot of carbs at one meal. Doing that can cause your blood sugar to bounce and give you odd feelings.

What testing did the doctor do? (What kind of tests?)

Lanie:

Tick41 above has just recently asked the below question on the Depression forum under the thread title: "Tryptophan."

Can you help her with that, also?

"Hi all, I'm in the Lyme forum but wanted to jump here for a question. I take 5mg lexapro for anxietyand a bit of depression due to Lyme. I've read that tryptophan can interact with SSRI's. After digging around I realized almost everything I eat has tryptophan. I follow a high protein/low carb diet. When they say tryptophan can interact with an SSRI do they just mean tryptophan supplements? Or does it literally mean tryptophan from foods is bad?"

Tim Tam, I don't know about this. It's an amino acid found in food and it's also a supplement. I think this is a question that a pharmacist could answer.
