Two months ago, I was dx'ed with autonomic small and large fiber neuropathy. I have a laundry list of symptoms that go with that dx.
Yesterday, I was dx'ed with diabetes with a fasting number of 150 and he told me that I could not tolerate the test drinking the sugar solution, whatever that means. It is hard to believe that I can have such severe autonomic symptoms (disabling) with such a low number. Is anyone else confined to bed, for the most part, with autonomic symptoms, due to diabetes. I will see the endocrinologist today to confirm dx.
If anyone is in the same boat as me, do you also have severe lower back pain. Sometimes I hear it is associated, and other times I hear it is not. The horrible back pain, starts the symptom change of events when I stand or sit too long. At this point, I am now waking up with it.
