There : There is a chance that you woke up with a very low blood sugar. Do you remeber not eating much the night before the epidoses occurred? This will give a clue to the diagnosis. You should seee your doctor and some diagnostic blood tests will likely be ordered. All the best.

Inflamation mid/ear: Otitis media is a broad term that includes various forms of inflamation of the middle ear. That space is like a cave in the skull, with the ear drum on one wall, a drain tube (eustacion tube) in the floor & another wall composed by the skull & the ear nerve. The walls make mucous which normally drains but can be trapped. Germs can feed on the trapped mucous & cause infection.
