6 days ago · Periodic Paralysis or Hypokalemic Periodic Paralysis in Brain & Nervous System

So this happened. Been put through the ringer, diagnosed with random stuff only to find out what I actually have is Hypokalemic periodic paralysis.
I think my first major attack was in 2015. Just reaching out to others with the condition.

Im not even sure this is the right place for this post.

Well it's going to be a while before I can get in. This whole thing is highly irritating and scary.

Im really worried my hypoglycemia has something to do with my previous bouts of low cortisol.

Doc called this morning and got me a STAT appointment with an endocrinologist.

My problem is I do eat quite well according to the diabetic nurse and the majority of my lows happen in my sleep.

Im going through the same issue for months. Kept telling me it was nightmares, anxiety, depression. Finally they hooked me up with a continuous monitor for a week.

Just found out yesterday that may average blood sugar is 69. I drops down into the 50s while I sleep and wakes me up every morning around 4am.
I already eat a lot and I still can't get it up very high. It wasn't above 100 one time the entire time I was being monitored.

Is this dangerous?

I had my gallbladder out last December. About a month after that my liver enzymes are slightly elevated.

Doc said it sounds like gastroparisis. She prescribed me buspar but I can't take it because it can cause bicarbonate loss which is what my renal tubular acidosis already causes.
