Not hypoglycemia: Hi. I know "hypoglycemia" is a common self- (or lay-) diagnosis, but it isn't real, so you might want to find another descriptor. What you describe as "hypoglycemia" has been shown to have NOTHING to do with your blood sugar. Hypoglycemia occurs in people who take insulin for diabetes, rarely with some other diabetes drugs, and VANISHINGLY RARELY otherwise. So it's not hypoglycemia.
