Michael, I can’t say for sure what the problem is without examining you first. It might be due to blood pressure problems, infections, metabolic fluctuations and even neurological problems. The best would be to have your blood pressure, sugar and temperature taken as soon as you feel like that again. If everything is normal it will more or less end the DIY part of this problem and you will have to see your doctor. Good luck.
