If you mean a low sugar with your body locked up and unable to move, or move erratically? Yeah, had a few over the past 40 years. They always come about when I'm too busy to pay attention to myself and think I'm tired. Lo and behold, I'm low and crash and burn. Usually come out of it with a glucose gel, but have needed a few visits to the hospital too.

Yes I did have a seizure over three years ago. I found out why I had the seizure too. I took my rapid acting insulin and then did not eat right away. That caused my blood sugar to drop way low. It was at 22 when I received help. I had the seizure while driving, thank God I did not hurt anyone while I was driving. That happened about three months after I was diagnosed. I learned a very valuable lesson albeit the hard way. Since then I have not had another seizure.
