Strange Symptoms

04/12/2010

Question:

I am a type II and the last several days I have been getting this strange tingling/brief numbness over my body. I then get light headed, dizzy and somteimes pain in my chest. It doesn`t last long, but, it seems to just come in waves. Like the ocean at the beach, the water goes in and out. This is the pattern that I am experiencing with these symptoms. My sugars range from 180-200 in the morning to 130-160 in the afternoon.
