Hi guys, I've had to bite the bullet and book a blood test for tomorrow as I've been feeling dreadful the last week or so, no energy whatsoever and a strange sickly empty feeling in my stomach regardless of sleeping normal 8 hours and normal meals. I am so tired and fatigued I can barely function. I saw a nurse practitioner yesterday who has mentioned depression, but also needs to rule out any physical problems such as anaemia or an under active thyroid. I am definitely not feeling myself. My limbs feel like jelly, I can't concentrate and I am exhausted. I almost feel as if I'm in a permanent hypo, that's how weak and nauseous I am feeling at times. My sugar levels have been higher than normal, but that's nothing new for me. I've tested for ketones today just to be sure and nothing. There is a bug going around at work and lots of people are off sick, but I haven't had any sickness or any extra trains leaving the rear tunnel. My tummy does feel a bit hollow, and my whole body feels like I haven't eaten or slept in days. Now, my veins are just non existent, and even googling blood test tips is making me have a panic attack and want to throw up. I couldn't even be sedated for an endoscopy a year ago due to not being able to find any veins anywhere. The last time a nurse tried to get blood out of me, her prodding made me almost faint and she gave up. People touching my veins makes me cringe and nauseated. Even before any blood is drawn. The anxiety has gotten worse and worse and I just can't handle it at all. I KNOW I NEED this test because I haven't even had an HBA1C since 2014/2015. I want to get better but my intense fear is making me feel even more ill. What can I do? I also have the dentist for a filling an hour after the blood test... I am not looking forward to tomorrow!!!!
