    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!

    My head feels dizzy, Moving my eyes rapidly makes it worse, I nearly always feel hungry, I sleep a lot but wake up feeling the same. I'm taking Glimapride twice a day.

    This is something you need to discuss with your doctor asap. There is no way anyone can tell you what is causing your symptoms on an internet message board.
    bigred53 responded:
    Isn't that a diabetes medication you're taking?

    flutetooter responded:
    Look up glimepiride side effects. Is your diabetes in control with near normal blood sugar levels? Out of control diabetes has many side effects which get worse in time unless you do everything you can to eat properly , get lots of exercise, and normal sleep.
    If at first you don't succeed, try, try again!
