Having shingles, taking treatment. Having fever, trembling, double vision. Reason?

My mom has shingles and was treated seven days ago. Last night she was running a fever that has gotten worse over the night. She s trembling and has double vision . She s also a diabetic, has RA, OA, COPD and polymalgia rheumatica. Her blood sugar was in the 190 s which is lower for her. Hypoglycemia would explain the shaking and double-vision but not the fever... so I m not sure what we should do.

Thanks for consulting HealthcareMagic!

fever with double vision in an elderly patient with significant medical history of diabetes, COPD should be considered seriously. Blood sugar of 190 is never considered Hypoglycemia in any patient and we cannot attribute shaking and double-vision to it. I feel that the symptoms described by you needs an emergency evaluation and treatment. Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if you have have any clarifications.
