LOW BLOOD SUGAR???
Twice I have experience what I have thought, and has felt like low blood sugar, usually in the late afternoon and after eating it subsides, but takes a while. Last nite I got the same symptoms but a fast heart rate and felt really week, but it lasted over 2 hours and my heart rate was between 110 and 120 beats per minute which made me feel uncomfortable. Should I be concerned, is this a typical low blood sugar symptom? This morning I feel fine, albeit slightly fatigued?

Hallo Nettie
Just let your GP do an ECG to see if you are not getting heart arrythmias. He could maybe also just check your fasting blood sugar and insulin levels?
