So earlier today I was at work, and as usual I tested around 4:30-ish before I head home at 5. I had just been to the endo and know I really need to use different sites or more fingers for testing, since I have calluses on my favorite fingers... I was in "how can I improve, let's find something new!" mode, so I decided to test with my pinky. Pricked my finger (it HURT!) and tested. No more than maybe 20 seconds later, and I'm seeing stars and feel sick like I'm going to faint. I sat slouched at my desk with my head back on the chair, probably looking white as a ghost, for maybe 20 minutes. I was sweating up a storm and felt like puking. I eventually got to the point where I felt better enough to call my husband and have him pick me up from work on his way home. I wasn't about to drive in that condition.
Has this ever happened to anyone else? Maybe I hit a nerve or something? I've had this sort of thing happen before when I get blood drawn at the doctor, but never so severe! And my poor little pinky is STILL throbbing.
