Check your sugar: Check you sugar when you feel this way. If it is too high, you may be dehydrated. If it is too low, you may need to work with your doctor to change your medications. If it is normal, get a home blood pressure cuff and check that your blood pressure is normal. If not work with your doctor on getting it normal. If both of these are normal, it's time to ask your doctor what else it could be.
