What causes dizziness in a diabetic?
Sincerely, XXXXXXX Taff
I did not tell you that within this year I have fallen many times from dizziness and landed in a XXXXXXX ER with a Subdural Hematoma, severe bruising, headache from the fall(I think). Oh, yes, I used to use a CPAP machine, my daughter's Ferret's chew it up so bad it had to be thrown away and has never been replaced. And I remain very sleepy during the day and usually take a nap cause I cannot stay awake.
You should consider getting a CPAP machine again.
Thanks for being on healthcaremagic.com.
I am Dr.Ajay Panwar,a neurologist, here to answer your query.
In background history of your sleep apnea, I would suggest you to consult a sleep specialist and get a fresh CPAP machine because leg cramps are frequently associated with sleep apnea.
Further, routine blood work should be done including serum electrolytes, Kidney function tests and Thyroid function tests. Adequate hydration should be maintained. Excellent control of Diabetes is also mandatory. These are the basic things that should be checked first, although there is a long list of causes of leg cramps and some higher investigations might be required if the above causes are ruled out.
Hope that helps.If you have any further questions,I shall be glad to have you in follow-up.
