Maybe unrelated, already have a call in to the endo...but here is the story:
I got home from work around 7pm, around 7:30 my son (16 yrs, T1 on July 09) asks me why his feet are bright red. I immediately test his BG and it is 280. He tells me he got home at 2:30pm, ate bagel bites (~90carbs) without any insulin or checking his BG, then went about his business until 7:30. Symptoms during this time- thirsy, frequent urination, lethargy, headache, extreme hunger, sore throat...pretty normal for high BG. By 9pm his BG is 170(due to the novolog), he goes to sleep. This morning he is very tired, complaining his throat still hurts and his upper arms and back are very painful. Any movement or the lightest touch hurt him. I get the sore throat, but what is up with the arm and back pain? No exercise yesterday that would make him sore. I asked him why he thought his arms hurt, he said he thought it was unrelated to diabetes but maybe he hit his arms on the bedside table at night....now I am not a genius but it would be fairly impossible for him to hit one arm on his bedside table and then roll over and bang the other one a few times on the table...pretty funny that this is his conclusion. (how many brain cells did that 4 hrs of high BG destroy!). So has anyone else experienced any sore muscles after a high BG? Also how long does it take you to recover your energy. This kid has been sleeping 12-14 hours a day after a high BG....Maybe something else is going on?
