Hi everyone.  Last night around 11pm I woke up feeling low, I tested and my blood sugar was 62.  I had a cup of apple juice and a fruit roll up and went back to bed.  I woke up 30 minutes later and my blood sugar was 37.  I felt awful.. heart racing, nauseous, sweaty, shaky.  I ate way more food than I should have and my blood sugar only went up to 109.  This was over a course of about an hour.  I still proceeded to have all the low symptoms for another hour.  I was very scared and ended up vomiting, not sure if due to the nerves or the food I ate or what???  I still today feel very "trembly" inside. I can't describe it.  I wonder if anyone else has ever gone through anything like this?  I did nothing out of the ordinary yesterday. My blood sugar was 152 at 9pm, I corrected it, ate a small snack of peanut butter and crackers, covered that as well.  I double checked my pump settings and everything.  SCARY.  Any ideas what is going on?  Thanks!

Maybe you had a touch of the flu or something. Once when I was becoming sick but before I knew, I had the same experience. I had eaten a sandwich and bloused for my meal. I guess since the insulin was working but I wasn't digesting my meal I had several lows that wouldn't respond to the apple juice that I was taking. I vomited everything I ate. That time I was actually in the hospital with my little girl who had been sick vomiting so I was taken to the the delivery floor (was pregnant too) where I was admitted for a couple of days.

Hope you feel better soon.
Sounds like maybe you over-corrected with the bolus you gave for your high at 9PM and then bolusing for your snack. I try and never bolus that close to bedtime. The other thing is when you treat a low you might want to wait 20 minutes and test again before going back to sleep just to make sure you got the result you wanted. Sorry you had that experience, it does not sound like fun!
Wow. Hope your feeling better today. I usually have a peanut butter sandwich w/ a cup of milk, wait about 30min check my sugars and then if they are good resume what I was doing. Also the glucose tablets they have now are awesome I always kep them handy! Your in my prayers friend!
