  • Blood sugar level while taking veltrex
    I been taking Veltrex for a viral infection in my eye for 3 days and today my blood sugar was 448.My normal blood sugar runs around 146.
  • Tardive dyskinesia and shingles
    I have always been hypersensitive to drugs. I have multiple allergies which have in some cases caused anaphylaxis. I developed Tardive Dyskinesia after being on Geodone for five days. (stopped geodon immediately after manifestation of symptoms) The symptoms began on the third day. I have managed to keep the Tardive Dyskinesia under control or to a few ticks finding my triggers and avoiding them. Like Caffeine, stress, and anxiety. I also had physical therapy and joined a gym. I also take an herbal supplement Relax and Sleep (4 yrs now) which helps a great deal. Recently, I developed shingles. The pain was unbearable and for some reason it triggered or aggravated Tardive Dyskinesia. I've been having inner tremors ever since and have had two bouts of Tardive Dyskinesia that borders on violent. I look like I'm having a seizure or Parkinsons. I always feel it coming on before it strikes. My chest muscles tighten and my arms and body are tense but I'm constantly moving. I can't speak and have difficulty walking when it occurs. My legs feel like weights. My face twitches, my eye winks and I can't swallow. Relax and sleep by natures made has been a life saver. It has melatonin, valerian root and chamomile. As a matter a fact I was in remission for a year. I only had subtle movements. I posted the discovery on youtube and other people have reported improvements. Mainly I wanted to know if the shingles triggered this episode because it effects the nerves? My grandmother developed alzheimer's late in life. I'm 49 years of age. Something is wrong. I can feel it.

Treated with albuterol sulfate and atrovent along with Lantis and Metformin for blood sugars. Blood sugar seems to be leveling off now but will blood sugar return to normal?

  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • I had an awful dream where I was being attacked by rats. I normally have very vivid dreams that leave me feeling extremely strange upon waking up, but this dream was just awful. I woke myself up from it. After being fully awake, I shut my eyes and started dreaming it once again and it wasn't where it left off. It was as if things happened while I was awake and I fell back into them, in sync with the dream. It made me extremely uncomfortable and afraid. I felt one bite me on the leg and when I turned on the light to look at my leg, there was a red mark right where it bit me and my leg was tingling and itching. I don't know how to feel about it.
