I fall asleep within 15 minutes of eating anything. I have Fibromyalgia, Gastroparesis and Chronic Pain. This added to all of that is just totally annoying. My family Dr. has checked my glucose levels, but she checked them 4 hours after I had eaten and they were normal. My Gastro Dr. just checked my Pancreas a few days ago for Pancreatitis, and I haven't heard yet.
But, I'm going to be working for a friends company starting today, and I am so upset.....
I CAN'T FALL ASLEEP ALL DAY !! And I need to work, I have bills to pay.
And my Social Security Disability has already been denied twice, and I'm enroute to the Attorney Way. It's hard enough to work being on 12 prescriptions a day, and Dr's adding more each day it seems.
But, now, the only way to "not fall asleep" is to "NOT EAT' (which even means) not taking my meds. This even happens if I take my meds. But, if I don't take anything and keep an empty stomach, then my Gastroparesis kicks in, and my stomach locks up. It's a freakin Catch 22. Grrrrrr
And, my family Dr. referred me to an Endocrinologist yesterday, which I would think was an Urgent Matter.....
They can get me in in a MONTH!! ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? I HAVE TO WAIT 30 MORE DAYS LIKE THIS?? Just to go in for a complete Glucose Blood Work-up?
Can someone tell me, if you have this....whatever I have....and what I should eat first thing in the morning or during the day to stop this in the mean time?? Please.
My normal breakfast routine has always been coffee with flavored creamer and 2 pop-tarts and has been forever !! What happened?
