Has anyone experienced hypoglycemia as a side effect of an ESI? I received on two weeks ago today and I've experienced the hot flashes and sweating, as well as some water retention. I haven't noticed an increased appetite, if anything I have less of one. I am not diabetic and I'm normally very healthy with the exception of my back.
Today I ate my usual breakfast and lunch, but an hour after having my sandwich I broke out in a cold sweat, became dizzy and nauseated and very shaky. We do have a glucometer at home so I checked my BS. It was 93, which to me seems too low for 1 hour after eating. I ate a piece of hard candy and instantly improved, BS went to 129. I'll be talking to my doctor later to let him know.
So fellow spineys - anyone else do this too??
