Tape, I saw this thread and thought I'd put my two cents in. This is what you wrote: I just recently bought a blood/sugar ReliOn gauge to check my blood sugar levels. When my BSL is at 130 or so I get the "feeling" so today I told myself to drink some coke. When I was almost done drinking a 16oz bottle of coke I started feeling better and could begin feeling a sense of relaxation. I wasn't having the "anxiety" feelings.
Seems to me it's not caffeine-related but blood sugar. You asked your doctor about
sugar withdrawal but have you had blood tests for your blood sugar? During annual exams, fasting blood tests are usually done. Do you know what your results were? If you don't know of any of these results, please ask to have a CBC done. Your doctor should have suggested this.
If your were having odd feelings at 130 and if you felt better after drinking some Coke (regular, with sugar), then your blood sugar has been too high. Having odd feelings at 130 might mean your body is used to higher
blood sugar and this is a red flag to me and why I believe it's high blood sugar, not caffeine.
It takes a little time for the body to adjust to lower/normal blood sugar levels after being used to higher levels but my point is I think it's your blood sugar.
I am editing to add that after re-reading all your posts about
blood sugar (I missed them the first round.), your blood sugar is way too high, not just 'maybe'. If your doctor thinks it's not high enough to treat, please find another doctor.
