So the second time this year (within 2 months) I had a hypoglycemia-like “attack”.
Both times I was fast walking through a mall/store and in a hurry looking for things…and both times I had not eatin FOOD in about 3-4 hours…
I do however, have snacks and water religiously all morning before noon, I work so I took lunch at 12:30 today, and at about 1 I felt shaky while in forever 21.
This morning I had frosted mini wheats cinnamon flavor, and a small iced latte with caramel…I also had a special K granola bar and some fruit snacks and a crackerfulls cracker sandwich thing (this was all before 10:30).
Did I have too much sugar and then my sugar plunged when I needed ACTUAL food?
Was I over-working my body because I was in a rush and it’s 95 degrees out today and I’m in work attire? (although I was in a somewhat air conditioned mall)?
My latte was super strong today by the way, and I have no idea why (since they press a button and espresso comes out) maybe they gave me a double by accident and it dehydrated me?
Nevertheless I grabbed the first kiosk I saw (grilled cheese place) ordered a wheat bread grilled cheese, while I was waiting I felt more shaky, probably half nerves/anxiousness at this point than the sugar…and I quickly bought a vitamin water and chugged that baby down!
I eat the same snacks daily…maybe not all within 10:30 but pretty much have the same stash and same breakfast and same latte for months and months..
Any thoughts? I had a fasting glycemic test at the doctors back in Feb, and I was normal.. that was 12 hours of fasting with only water.
I also checked it at home (my grandma has a pricky test thing) and it was normal (this was at 4pm about 4 hours after lunch)
I’m not pregnant…I do have heavy heavy heavy periods (no condition though, just heavy and 5-6 days long)….possibly anemic at this time.
I drink 3 bottles of water before noon.
I don’t pee a lot or have any other symptoms, just when it happens I’m breathing hard and shaky and kinda antsy and nervous and my legs feel slightly week and my pulse races…also sweaty palms.
About 10-20 mins I felt better after the grilled cheese/vitamin water
