Type 2 Diabetes and Stroke

Published by poetic1 in the blog poetic1's blog. Views: 755


Friday evening, 1st. May 2020 my blood sugar reading was 28. I did feel confused and my head was noisy. Suddenly, the left side of my face and head felt as if it was paralysed, I couldn’t move my tongue and it was impossible to swallow. This lasted about 20 minutes and thankfully my feeling came back. Today is Sunday and I’m contemplating phoning my Doctor's surgery tomorrow. I’m worried that I might be fussing for nothing. Could it be some type of migraine. The Doctors are busy right now with the Coronavirus and am afraid they might think I’m wasting their time.

Just hope for some reassuring advice,

Thank you,
