  • I'm going tomorrow to get tested actually.... I am having severe itching, mostly on my feet. It's like an internal itch that no amount of scratching can cure. My mom says that's how my grandma found out she had it. Not sure if that helps, but I'll know more tomorrow.

  • no, she actually feels better after a light snack. if she was drowsy i would have said something already. thats why i wanted to get some more info. i've done a bit of research and have a few more questions to ask her.
    in fact i am the one that goes to sleep after too many carbs. but i know i am hypoglycemic. if she was like that i would have had personal anecdotal info to suggest testing.
    but yeah, going to call her tomorrow and discuss it
