Not necessarily: If your seizures are short, less than 2-3 minutes and you recover without needing intervention by a doctor, You do not need to go to the emergency room. You indicate you have reactive hypoglycemia. Make sure to check your blood sugar after a seizure as it may be due to too low blood sugar. If you have not, speak to an endocrinologist and dietitian about what can be done to stabilize sugar level
