It's not Diabetes
However, sometimes it isn't diabetes causing the troubles. Sometimes we just have a headache because well, people get headaches or we are tired because we stayed up too late or didn't get a good sleep. After blaming the big D for such a long time, often diabetics have a hard time accepting that they are just not feeling good and it has nothing to do with diabetes. Of course all of these things in turn effect diabetes, but in the meantime, sometimes a headache is just a headache.
Today, I was feeling pressure in my head and couldn't seem to shake it. My first though of course was that my blood sugar was off, but to my surprise I was rocking a nice 6.3. I then just had to accept that my headache had nothing to with my diabetes and there wasn't much that I could do besides take a Tylenol to stop it from happening. That made me realize that sometimes it is nice when it is due to high/low blood sugar because then at least you have the answers!
