Has anybody heard of anything like this or am I over reacting to something normal?
I have to be very diligent about eating enough because when I get low blood sugar I feel terrible. My heart pounds, I feel nauseous, get a headache, very irritable, jittery - I just feel awful.
However, the passing out could also be related to blood volume increase.
So I don't know for sure, but I do know that low blood sugar can definitely be very severe. I always keep a hard candy handy to suck on if I can't get food right away. My blood sugar can crash unexpectedly, and sucking on a hard candy will prevent that until I can get food.
Also, B6 really helps with stabilizing blood sugar, and when I'm taking it I don't have quite such problems, though I still have to be careful to eat regularly.
