Low sugar?: Low sugar or hypoglycemia, among others, might be the culprit. If this is a new symptom for you, will definitely suggest that you discuss it with your PCP. Among your meds, both corticosteroids and Ibuprofen are considered to be high risk meds and their use should be limited as much as possible.
