i wanted to ask if anyone else has experienced this. Back in the day when I was first diagnoised and the disease was not under control I had experiences where almost suddenly I started to shake, drip with sweat and become so fatigued/exausted that I felt like I would fall unless I dot to sit down.
This has happened to me five times. I can remember all of the incidents very clearly. The first was in Sainsbury's. I was sweating and trying to make my way to customer service and in fear that I wouldn't make it in time. When I did get there I wasn't making a lot od sense and I was shaking. Lucky for me a woman standing beside me noticed me and just took over. She ordered a worker to get a chair immediatly.
Turned out she was a nurse and she said she knew by the colour of me that something was very wrong. I was so glad of her. After sitting and a glass of water I was able to make it to the car and home. It happened to me in Lidle, Jolley's Pet shop, Asda and most recently in Iceland.
The episode in Iceland happened just last Wednesday. My disease is once again un controled. I was standing inthe queue and felt like my body was boiling, I was shaking and felt again like I could no longer keep my body upright. Once again a very kind woman came to my rescure. She said it was the colour I turned and the sweat dripping from my hair. She took my money, paid for my goods and walked me to my car, which was just outside the shop, luckly.
I'm very lucky that everytime its happened I have had someone with me or a kind stranger came to help me. I can't imagine how anyone would be able to get me off the floor if I had collapsed......
Has this happened to anyone else? Now remember it only happens when my disease is NOT under control......its very frightening and has frightened me from going out in public for fear of another occurance.
Hope everyone is well.
