Headaches & Low Blood Sugar: Are they linked
Hi Doc,

I have been a diabtetic for 14years, and I am on insulin injections. My sugar level is well controlled but recently I have been experiencing really bad headaches (almost migraines), but the funny thing is that they always seem to happen when I have low blood sugar.

Can low bloody sugar give me headaches?

Kim, the headaches might be due to low blood sugar and or pressure. The problem is that low blood sugar is a very dangerous symptom in your case and the best would be to see your doctor ASAP. Good luck.
