Yesterday, a tooth got pulled. Series of events/mistakes. Ouch.
Got home and waiting for all the different drugs to "kick-in". Sugar was a bit high, but coming down gently.
Yet once home, I was rapidly literally not able to stop moving. Pacing back and forth up and down the hall, rubbing my hands through my hair, swinging my arms, going into the bathroom...
I was entirely AWARE I was doing all of them, yet I was simply not able to stop myself! A pain induced migraine was coming; light sensitivity grew pretty bad, pain induced nausea growing faster still. Read about them, knew what it was, just never had the experience personally before. Nasty stuff.
Laid in the dark, on the bedroom floor and tried some gentle easy breathing exercises, a couple simple, gentle postures, but literally could not regain any control over my body moving for more than a few seconds. Couldn't maintain that brief control to my shock.
Sugar was stunningly good considering. Pulse and breathing were definitely up there but no small hand tremors, no hyper-ventilation, no pupil change... no clear symptoms it was adrenaline causing the problem, (which I was familiar with and could identify anyway). Just big body moments I was unable to cease.
Pain sweat drenched through my shirt and the sheets. Eventually the dog laid on my arm holding me down, the cat laid across my chest purring loudly. Both very gentle, would not cease.
After probably two hours the drugs (?) finally worked and knocked me out for fifteen minutes. The rest of the night was bearable, no repeat of the episode so far.
Anybody have that experience being incapable to stop yourself from moving before... that a "panic attack" perhaps or a different something else you think? Diabetes related or this plus just happen to be diabetic too??
