    Hello!

    I have just applied my third Libre sensor on my right arm. However, each time I put on the sensor, I feel generally unstable, especially the first couple of days. If the dizziness stops, or if i just accustom after the first days, I don't know, but when I tried a few weeks' break between the second and the third sensor, the difference between wearing it and not wearing it was obvious. I have a slight ache in my arm throughout the 14 days as well. Is there anyone who recognizes this feeling or has a suggestion of what might cause it?

    There is an acupuncture point called LI -14 that runs close to where we put the sensor. It just so happens that this is used to treat Dizziness caused by hypertension. I have wondered in the past what injections do to these points. I Googled this I am not authoritative on this.
