In brief: Could be the read

Sometimes, glucometers don't read your blood sugar correctly.
If the data doesn't feel the symptoms, then you should consider it to be lab error.

In brief: Not that low

Lots of people have level in that range without symptoms.
Usually what causes symptoms most often is not the number itself but how fast the blood sugar drops.
