Feel dizzy, heart racing, elevated blood sugar, sores on feet. Causes ?

Feel dizzy and as if I can't get enough oxygen, heart is racing. Took my blood sugar and it is 176 is that causing this? Have a Dr appt on the 10 th. Went to urgent care for sores on my feet and they said it was most likely diabetes. Labs showed blood sugar was 226 and a1c was 6.5. just wondering if the high sugar can make me feel weird like this.

Thanks for posting!

Diabetes mellitus is one of the causes, because it makes your blood less viscosity.
I suggest you to make the coagulation test (INR) and you should take anticoagulation if the level of INR is high.

Take care of your self!

Wife which is a 45 year old white male started having numbness in feet about 6 weeks ago. Now she is also having it in her hands and mid back. She feels at time her left side is almost dead. The left side seems to give most of the problems but she does have it on both sides half the times. Now she is complaining of being foggy headed and heart sometimes feels like it is racing. All this started after she had her throid taken out. Blood work show she was low in B-12 and has taken 3 B-12 shots in the last 3 weeks. They seem to help at first but for only 12-24 hours, then all the systems are back. She is not a diabetic either since those labs came back fine.
