I was just wondering how anyone who experiences lows feels after they recover from them. I usually feel like I have not slept for days after experiencing a low. The lower I get the more exhausted I feel. After I recover I also feel really depressed for a few hours. It usually takes me a good 3 or 4 hours to fully recover and feel myself again. Does anyone else feel like this? Does it take anyone else this long to get back to normal?

HI, I have had some pretty freaky feelings w/my lows,when my body was more aware of them that is. I would get sweaty,and my speech really unaudible..my mind would nearly freeze up it seemed. And at times I swear I could litteraly hear my heart beat. Afterwards,yes It left me tired, and a little confused,its now hard for me to feel the lows as yesterday morning i woke up to 38,and could barely stand to test let alone eat..but Iam still grateful I woke and hopeful it will get better.
You take care .your friend Jeri

Used to be Hypoglycemic. Used to have lows often. Yes it took me 30-60 min after eating for me to feel back to normal after I ate and got my sugar normal again

I normally don't let myself get that low either, but I was fine before I went to bed that night. I had just bought a new house at the time. The doctor told me the stress of trying to close the deal, then moving into the new place while still working during the day, probably added to the reason for the low BS.

Believe me I never want to do that again.

This is normal after a low BS. It's just like getting the energy zapped right out of you. I was once rushed to the hospital for a reading of 26. I don't remember much of the beginning of that night. I do remember the doctor not wanting me to go to work the next day. He said it would take me that long to regain strength. I NEVER want to feel that way again.

Then I got it back up WAY too high…ugh I was a mess. But Ty took over and got me straight. He really is my lifesaver. Glad you are okay. Also your mother in law too Gabby! Love yasss Sheila

That seems to happen to me every time I get low. I am concentrating so hard on getting out of the low that I shoot my number up way to high. To me though it is a lot easier to get a high number normal than a low number normal if that makes any sense. 38! Wow that is low. Thank goodness you have someone to take care of you when that happens. I am glad you are okay.

I have not had a low that has been deblitating, but my mom had one the other day that had me worried all day. She recovered, but all day she was a little out of it. It prompted a lot of cautionary steps to be taken in case it happens again where I am not there to help.
