In brief: Complex

You can raise your sugar and BP by eating sugar and salt, supplemented by fluids.
A low serum cortisol can cause both conditions, so a Cortrosyn stimulation test may be indicated to rule out adrenal insufficiency. This is rare and you probably don't have it. Hyperventilation can mimic these symptoms and is far more common.
