    Question Facial fluslhinr

    I have a question I hope someone can answer. My hubby is type 2, diabetic, when he first wakes up in AM his face is "blood red" & his hands & feet tingle. He says it feels like when your foot goes to sleep kind of tingle. This only happens on occassion & with no set pattern. He was taking glucotrol & the first time it happened he had just swallowed the glucotrol & took about 6 steps before becoming dizzy & turning red. This morning he had not taken anything and another attack occurred. It is always in the morning & before he eats or takes his meds. I checked his fasting blood sugar & it was 90 this morning during the red spell, (for lack of a better description) Does anyone else have this problem? If so what do you think causes it? Thanks in advance.

    Is the Glucotrol the only medication he is on? I ask that because other medication can cause facial flushing as a side effect. The tingling in his fingers could be a range of things from a pinched nerve to neuropathy. I would let the Dr know what is going on and see what he thinks. Facial flushing is also one of the first signs of rosacea so a Dr really needs to check this out. Good luck
