Re: [IP] Hallucinations?



I had a low last Wed, and had convulsions with the low.  That was probably the
"jerking" that she was experiencing.  Some lows that I have had resulted in
some weird dreams.  I think that you handles the situation correctly.

Subject: [IP] Hallucinations?

Hi,

My daughter is 6 and has had her pump since Nov.  It has been
wonderful!  She has been doing well, but we had a strange thing happen
Monday, early morning.  She woke us up crying.  She was standing in the
hall outside her room when I got to her.  Her heart was racing and she
was awake.  She was seeing something in her doorway and was jerking
uncontrollably.  She was terrified.  My husband took her downstairs and
was holding her in the living room.  She said the piano was moving and
other furniture was moving.  We checked her blood sugar and she was 60.
We use the Freestyle meter and check on her arm, so we realize that it
can be slower to register a low.  We gave her a juice box and a carb of
vanilla wafers assuming she was lower than 60.  After 30 minutes or so
she was fine and went back to bed.  Later she told me she saw something
coming out of her door and her pillow was raising up.  She said she saw
things coming out of her doorway when she was in the hall.  She had me
beliving there was something there.  Her eyes were big as saucers and
her heart racing.  It was obvious she was terrified.

I called her endo and talked to a nurse and she had never heard of
anything like this.  We found a little information on the internet about
it.  Has anyone here ever had a problem like this?  Is it connected with
lows?  My husband thought she was having a seizure the way she was
jerking, but she was awake and responding to us.  She remembers what she
saw.
Thank you,
