background: newly diagnosed (type2)in November, on Metformin(it was caught early 500 mgs once a day) and have been watching diet very carefully and exercising. I never go without eating for many hours, I try to eat every two hours during the day and the last time I had this same dizzy spell was 'before' I was diagnosed, only that day was much scarier, as it lasted longer and my neighbor said I was pale. Okay, I was in the store and luckily my husband was with me. I felt like I might faint and he had to escort me to the restroom door! A couple of minutes or so after it began, but it was getting better, my sugar was 92 which I know is very normal. I do not think this had anything to do with blood sugar, because a 'low' does not correct itself right? you have to eat or drink something that will bring it up. I didn't. I was getting ready to, as I had things in my purse, like I do at all times. So whatever this was corrected itself. Also, I was not pale this time my husband said. Now, the last one I had, before diagnosis, made me pale my neighbor said but hubby says I was not pale this time. What in the world do you all think it was? I only would like responses if you have had this happen and you found out what it was and when it happened to you, your sugar always checked out normal. I'm so worried now that it might happen again and it takes weeks for me to see the doctor, unless it is an emergency but when I go to my next class later this month, I will definitely tell them about this and see what they think. ALso, I plan to make an appt. Monday with an endocrinologist because I have had more tingling in one of my feet, actually everyday off and on for a while. thanks!!
