I describe it as slushy, like I can perceive the sugar clumps clogging up my arteries, veins and capillaries.
Overnight I sleep like a baby and love it. A descriptive word would be yummmm
When I wake up with it, the word for several hours after is ...S**T
Yes, I feel sticky too!
I get the head thing too; it makes me want to close my eyes. I can tell when my blood sugar is getting back towards normal because I can open my eyes and my head feels ok.
Exactly my experience too! And my feet get tingly. Like somebody puts tiny needles in my soles. I hate that feeling.
Well, I guess I could describe it. I kind of get anxious, a bit hot, and ... I don't know how explain the rest. I think I mostly feel anxious because I know I'm going to be upset when I see a number that is over 230.
I feel like I have just eaten a huge meal, even if I have had nothing to eat.
The massive high feeling would be feeling like I'm on fire and wanting to throw up, this would be ketones. The high enough feeling would be wanting to go to sleep and feeling weak, can't move my limbs. Horrible dry or sticky mouth and quite irritable. It was kinda daft trying to concentrate at school and college when I could barely sit up straight. Sometime when I was high my vision would go funny and headaces. Going to the loo too much and being dehydrated. Gosh I dunno how I managed to function with all that going on.
I have always described lows as feeling sharp and prickly, and highs as feeling thick and sluggish. I get sharp headaches when low, and dull headaches when high.
It sounds like a train is roaring through my head, my right eye wants to pop, and I am sleepy and can't concentrate on anything.
