When shaking from hypoglycemia, my whole body shakes, what I am currently feeling is a tremor on my left chest, back and legs, I just stopped Metformin because I lost weight and was going hypo on the metformin, I am on a very low carb diet, eat only one slice of WW bread for breakfast, the rest is protein and vegies. Are you hypoglycemic or hyperglycemic
Thanks for the response, article you sent a link was exactly what I needed, I didnt take magneisium because I was scared and wasnt sure how much to take, How is Kathy doing?
I am hypoglycemic. I wish I understood this sugar thing more. I need to research it, but so tired! Not sure if the glucophage is doing it or the yeast medicine is. I think I need a glucometer...
I always like reading that antibiotics took away this symptom for people. It didn't do that for me, but not sure if I was on the right ones and the right amount, for long enough.
28 days of Rocephin IV and about 6 months of orals (a bit spread out). Mostly doxy, mino and cipro.
Looks like my magnesium (titer and intracellular) levels are ok.
So validating to read of others with these symptoms.
Finally found an endocrinologist willing to work with me and eager to help figure things out!
I learned by watching Mystery Diagnosis, that there were practitioners such as 'Metabolic Endocrinologists' and 'Metabolic Geneticists'. Made an appt with both of them. They have already read through my paperwork and know one another, have spoken and seem like they are looking forward to helping figure out the sugar issue.
I hope that I can figure out why hypoglycemia should be treated by glucophage, and if getting my sugar in check will reduce the twitching.
I had my first experience of full body twitching in the past few nights. Usually it's an arm or a leg or a foot or something. This time, the bottom half of my body goes one way, the other goes another. Crazy!
Anyone else have any updates on the twitching?
I am also doing NAET (allergy elimination treatment). I know that I twitch more when I use the plastic (oxygen tubing). Also if I keep my cellphone near me. So odd. So I think it is heightened sensitivity. Well, of course infection plus heightened sensitivity.
Hoping people are doing better with this .... please update
