last night i had a low blood sugar attack 79, felt light head/dizzy, weak, scared, about to flip out,. Next chest felt like squeezing/tightness around my whole chest, pains in both my underarm/armpits and just felt like i was gonna black out. stared treating myself for the low sugar. Couldn't go back to sleep till 2 hours later. Now a day after, I just felt a sharp quick sharp pain on my right chest area and went down my arms to my finger tips. Is this anything to worry about? I do have swollen hands, stinging fingers, legs and feet. iat times dread going to the doctors/er. history of diabetes, thyroid cancer, high blood pressure, brain anuersym, chronic pain, heart disease. just dont know what to think anymore.
Well, without a clinical evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of your symptoms. Blood sugar of 79 is not particularly low enough to cause the symptoms of hypoglycemia and other possible causes such as angina, low/ high blood pressure, neuro-muscular causes etc would need to be considered in the situation. I would suggest consulting a primary care physician/ internist initially and depending on the cause diagnosed/ suspected, it can be managed accordingly or specialist care may be sought.
Hope this is helpful.
