Does anyone feel really sick when recovering from a "crash"? I crashed last night and I feel horrible. What symptoms do you guys experience?

I feel shaky and a little sick when it happens. Once I have a number back in a good range, I usually do okay pretty quick after that. The longest I have worked to get levels back up has only been 30 minutes. I don't know if it takes longer or if I have them more often if it would make a difference.

Maybe I need to define. When I say "crash"…I mean blood sugar drops rapidly to below 40. Ill be more specific next time. Sorry.

I don't know if I would call what I've been through a crash or not, but I am in the process of stabilizing my numbers. Each time I drop to a new level (400 to 300 for example) I experience the symptoms described. Once I remain in that level for a couple of days, I feel better.

What is "crashing"? A low? I feel like crap- I'm low now and still feeling miserable. I feel sick and lifeless. I don't want to move. I find myself constantly thinking about food.
