I've been suffering from crippling headaches, fatigue and the shakes for the past week. I didn't realize how bad it was until I tried sending a text on my phone. I couldn't type it out because my fingers were trembling so badly. I halved my Met dosage, but, still no change, so I had to stop taking it altogether.
My body is still adjusting. The shakes have stopped, but the headaches and fatigues haven't. I've had to start eating some sweets just to get my blood sugar back up.
I should have listened to my body. I should NOT have started taking the Met. The consultant didn't test to see if I was IR, he just assumed I was. Not entirely his fault. I'd read how many women ov while on met so I myself was giddy for it. But I really didn't need it. My blood sugar was already under control (eating oats everyday will do that to you). And whatever insulin resistance I may have had prior was under control and my hormones were balanced and I ovulated just 9 days after I started taking the Met, so I don't believe the Met caused me to ovulate.
I was already living a healthy lifestyle, eating low GI meals, loosing weight and exercising regularly. My cumulative weight loss in a whole month of taking met is equal to what I used to loose in just one week before I started taking Met!
I saw my GP on Tuesday. The first thing he said was to cut the dosage. I told him I already did that a week ago. Then he said I should stop taking it. I told him I did that a few days ago. So he ordered a blood test, just to see if there's any other cause for the low blood sugar. Should get the results in about 10 days.
