Am I Running & Don't Know It?

I went to bed on Sat., Feb. 11th (1dp5dt) feeling a little strange.  I was a little lightheaded, but just put myself in bed and went to sleep.  I figured I just needed to sleep through whatever was going on with me.

The next morning, I got up and didn't feel much better.  I really felt very nervous & shaky - like if I don't get to eat all day.  Also, my resting pulse was in the 90s, which is not normal for me.  I really felt like I was running a marathon while just sitting on the couch.  Hopefully I was losing a few pounds in the process...

Around 5pm, I called the emergency number for my Doc's office.  I felt strange calling the emergency number because I'm not in major pain and I'm not bleeding or anything, but this just wasn't 't normal for me.  I ended up getting the Doc that did my transfer on Friday on the phone.  I told him what was going on and he said that either my sugar had gotten low since I am still taking my Metformin for PCOS & I had a sudden change in activity level with being on bedrest.  He suggested getting some Gatorade to try to even things out.  He also said that it could be a reaction to  Progesterone, since I had changed one shot a day to a suppository.  If I still felt bad at bedtime, he told me to hold off on the suppository.  He said that if I didn't feel better, I need to call their office on Mon. morning.


  1. I hope everything is okay! Just keep your tummy full and relax. Hopefully things will calm down.

  2. Hope Gatorade fixes it. Take care!!
