I've been recently diagnosed with Diabetes and I was searching the internet for this EXACT question! I am 32. I had a light exercise-filled day at work, drank mostly water with a splash of lemonade for flavor, throughout the day, took my blood sugar before lunch, it was pretty high, but I took my insulin accordingly. Had a salad with chicken for lunch. Came home, took my blood sugar. Still a little high, but better (I literally JUST started a couple days ago, so I'm still getting used to all this). Ate dinner, some chicken in broth with some veggies, and water. I was pretty much ok, until just a bit after I ate. Now I have a pounding headache in my temples, above the ears, upper nose-front of head/forehead, and an annoying bad pressure behind my twitchy, red eyes. Although, since diagnosis, I too, recently have cut my caffeine intake from about 2 Coke Zeros and 3 cups of caffeinated green tea, to 2 cups of green tea a day, or so.

Why does this happen??? What do I do to help it?

Yes, for me it was a newly developed food allergy. I had several citrius fruits that were causing problems. Never had a problem before meds. Now that I'm off the meds I can have some of the fruits again.

I have been experiencing both of these a lot of late, especially today. I think it maybe because I have cut my intake of caffine. I am also experiencing eye twitching quite alot as well. I plan on consulting my doctor about it when I see her next. My BG has been running between 113- 134.
