This has happened to me twice in the last three weeks at a store (the same store) while grocery shopping. It's weird I know, but I am convinced it was not my blood sugar. It "feels" just like a low spell, kind of strange feeling, dizzy, light headed, you feel you shouldn't walk like it will get worse. Then in a couple of minutes maybe three minutes it's gone. Both times, I tried to walk calmly to the restroom and I checked my BS, which was fine both times, I had eaten well each time before going out. one time my BS was 85 and I had just eaten a big salad for lunch with low fat dressing, lots of veggies on it, and edamame, no croutons, or anything like that. Another time my bs was 100, I had eaten about an hour or so before I checked it, before this happened. It is scary, but after I get in thre alone, I'm fine. I shake a lot during it, but I think that is nerves, because I am so worried when it happens, just out of nowhere. I never felt stressed before they occurred. I had a few incidents like this before I was diagnosed with diabetes over two years ago. I've talked to people who have had panic attacks, some who are taking medicine for it, and they tell me they are like a low blood sugar feeling. I'm not going to the doctor, because there is no way they can tell me for sure what is happening, it's only occasionally and if they put me on anything, by the time I take a pill, it would be gone. I am just going to have to deal with it for now. If it becomes more frequent, I will have it checked out.
